HEALTHYSTART

I am changing my introduction today after almost a year. May 1st 2010 was my start date with Spark. Now today April 11 2011 I have a different perspective. I used the nutrition tracker in the spring of 2010 and lost 22 pounds then in the fall of 2010 I stopped doing it. I just got tired of it I have continued to read Spark people emails and have continued to go for walks but the winter saw me gain back all but 6 pounds of my spring weight loss.

I just got tired of it I have continued to read Spark people emails and have continued to go for walks but the winter saw me gain back all but 6 pounds of my spring weight loss. I obviously haven't changed much if I am still yoyoing. I will continue ... I will use the tracker and I wont give up. Spring is around the corner and I want to get back to where I was last summer. With the help of the tracker and great spark friends I know I can do it. Peace

Personal Information:
I am Joanna Carnie. I am a grandmother but the grand kids are 18 and 20 years old. I live in northern British Columbia in the countryside near a small village(originally from Montreal). I walk in the woods with my friend and our dogs. I am married and have a part time job at the local college. I read a lot and volunteer at the food bank.

Other Information:
In the last 20 years I have lost around 40 lb. twice. It seems like every 9 or 10 years I decide to lose the weight again. It creeps on at the rate of 3 or 4 pounds a year. I hate the scale and my clothes are tight. I am hoping to break the yoyo cycle this time and keep it off.

Happy to hear you are retiring soon. What do you plan to do with your time?
I was going to retire at the end of this semester also, but have decided to stay on till the end of the year because my son is still at University. then I will go off and travel and plan to spend a year in Greece in my village on Rhodes.
Glad to hear you are having nice weather. Have a great June. emoticon

Joanna Banana, of course - what else??

I work in a boarding school, college prep for boys gr 8 -13. I work all year round - I assist the Headmaster, so I have a huge variety of things I do, some of it for the kids, some for parents, various faculty, but mainly -- the Head. I am on the corporate board as well. I do set up graduation (HUGE hassle starting in October for planning)) and all Board meetings. This means dealing with everyone from the chefs to ordering tassels. It's a private school so we do not have the same budget constraints and no lay-offs or anything.

I am just tired every May until we get our boys outta there and await for our summer school kids. No matter what is going on, I work closely with the Headmaster and our suite is off to the side on one wing. But it's still noisy and busy and actually, kinda fun. This is my 15th year!

What do you do in your school?

I am feeling much better. Thank you for your well-wishes.

It sounds balmy up there in the far north! Soon you will be sweltering with summer - Yay!
