Retirement - My Grand Adventure

Eight years ago I started SparkPeople at my highest weight ever - 230 pounds. I got down to 196 lbs before life got in the way and got back up to 223.

Friday was my last day of work. When I was asked my plans for retirement, my reply was "Get back into shape and take off some of the 50 lbs I gained while working here!"

Since part of that plan was to spend a lot of time walking, my gifts were all hiking supplies - wonderful!
