Chlorine Is My Perfume

I love Summer! I'm in the pool every day weather permits and I am always in a good mood!

Hi, my name is Melissa. I'm nearing 50 years old and I am totally blind. I lost my sight due to Type 1 Diabetes, but I don't let that little inconvenience get me down much! I am an adjunct professor of psychology at my local community college and a licenced profressional counselor. Since joining SP in 2008 I've lost 20 pounds. Yes, I am losing slowly, but I'm losing!

SparkPoints: 152,284

Fitness Minutes: 171,570

My Goals:
My goal for BLC 25 was to lose 12 pounds and I lost 10. I'm pleased. I'm working now to lose an extra vacation pound!

*Drink 8 to 10 cups of water daily
*eat at least 5 freggies a day -- not hard for me to do in summer!
*walk at least 1 mile daily
*work out at least 20 minutes daily
*stay on a losing streak


My Program:
I joined Weight Watchers after so many teammates were meeting with such success and I like it! I am following the points tracking program because I don't trust my portion sizes! I am also using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to make this a lifestyle change and not just another diet! I walk daily and am restarting my 3 day a week commitment to Curves.


Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes and living the wild life in my younger days! I "celebrated" 45 years of being diabetic this May. I live in lovely South VA and have a wonderful husband and spoiled mutt named Sassy. She is a handful, but it is worth it!

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I am an avid belly dancer, but have only recently started to dance again since my mother's death on 12/12/12! I enjoy water! I love swimming, water aerobics, water jogging and more! I walk a mile with leslie Samsone everyday and sometimes more. I actually enjoy exercising! I love summer!! I also try to make it to Curves at least 3 times a week and do the Curves Smart program which pushes me to improve my workout each time! Plus I am an avid follower of Jessica Smith's video workouts!

Melissa - I just love your dog pictures. I have 2 grand dogs that live upstairs with my daughter and her husband. I certainly understand your comment about the work involved in a new puppy. Our one and a half year old Golden is just starting to calm down and act responsibly.

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blogs. I was looking at your pictures, it looks like you have a couple of special friends at your house too (the four legged kind). I like Jack, the lap dog. I don't think dogs have any concept of size, I once had a German Shepherd that thought he was a lap dog too. Ours now are pretty little but think they're as big as anybody. Today we went to a dog park and ended up in the big dog area instead of the little dog area because there weren't any other little dogs there for them to play with. They sure didn't care that they were the littlest ones there.
