Loving Life in Seattle

I taught in Washington State public schools (elementary and junior high) for 27 years before retiring at 55 in 2005. I wanted to enjoy retirement with my husband before my EDS (hypermobility) made it too hard.

When our adorable granddaughter was born in April, 2011, I knew I had to finally try to permanently change bad habits and get into some sort of shape if I was going to live a long happy life and watch her grow up.

Making several healthy changes in my lifestyle and supporting them with the tracking devices on SP has been a great benefit to me. I am presently losing weight intelligently and sensibly, I exercise within my limitations to improve my mobility and strength, and most importantly, I have finally overcome certain bad habits and have adopted positive, healthier ones.

Hi Jody! What keeps me going with walking every day is to go before the heat of the day, and always keep my iPod ready with bouncy rock 'n roll! I post the final song on my Facebook page every day. Today it was Dr. Hook. And, now that my ankles are hurting every day, I think of you often, and you inspire me. Keep up the good work, and I'm keeping track of you! emoticon
