My Goals:
My goals are to be happy and healthy. Wealthy would be pretty good too. I would like to trim down so as I can be more active and to be able to cross my legs with ease ! I'd also like to be happier with what i see in the mirror on the occasions that I have to look into one.

Personal Information:
my name is joan, i live in newcastle, australia.. i'm 65 years old, i almost said 64, time has caught up with me again, it does that a lot lately.. i'm a retired general and midwifery nurse, but haven't worked now for about 8 years..i was terminated due to a bad back but i can do most things within reason. i am married (43 years in september) we have 4 children. 3 girls and the youngest a boy already 30. where oh where has my life gone. but i now have 3 little grandsons 8 and 5 years and a new little one at 2 months. the 2 youngest daughters have managed to produce them. i am enjoying them but they live quite a distance from me so i don't get to see them very often. my wt. has always been a "thing" with me..although looking back at old photos i wasn't too bad but always thought i was fat... really hippy anyway. since i finished work and got lazy really do have too much weight and even feel very heavy - i do have to shift it if i want to feel and look better and be healthier.

Merry Christmas, Dear Friend. As you are quite aware, I am sure, I have not been on Sparkpeople for a long time. I just wanted to come to your page and wish you the merriest and happiest season. I think of you often and your kindnesses to me.

Life has been a roller coaster I cannot stop or even slow down at the moment. I am praying for quieter times. If they happen. I'll be back.

Take care,
Dawn

Imagine my surprise when I got a package from Australia. Thank you so much for the calendar and coasters. I am using the coasters in my living room. They are so unique.

The calendar will be on my kitchen wal soonl. Such beautiful pictures. Have you traveled around to all those places? It even has the 'special' days that are celebrated there, which I find very interesting.

Thanks again friend.

Joan W

Thanks for the goodie and nice commets. You made my day! I am not clever in usual way but have common sense and had a lot of experiences in my life. One of my sons calls me a wise woman and asks advice on anything.
I do find a lot of SP are very intense and emotional As a Brit I grew up being told not to show emotions So out wardly I dont., but am a warm caring person. Maybe its something in your ancestory that makes what I say familiar?English originally? Thanks again Ree
