I'm Karen - wanting to be healthy rather than skinny, but I need to lose at least 50 pounds to head in that direction.
I'm a cancer survivor (ovarian) and have used that as an excuse for being overweight and unfit. I have a new awareness of how limited our time here is, and I want to spend my time having fun, not just sitting!
I want to be fit. I want to walk and hike without puffing; I want to run with my dog.
Water aerobics 3x/week. Other TBD.
I live in Southern CA. Now an empty-nester and retiree, living with one remaining dog, Cherry.
Author: Mark Twain
Movies: Singing in the Rain, Galaxy Quest, Overboard, Star Wars
TV: 60's sitcoms, As Time Goes By. Doc Martin and other Britcoms
Music: The Beatles, Peter, Paul & Mary, Simon & Garfunkel
I play the clarinet (fairly well), the guitar (fair only), the piano (right hand only), and sing (high point: the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium)

Trust me, the summers in Chico are PLEASANT compared to Tucson!!!
But, for me, the winter fog there, which would lag for days and weeks, was so depressing. I went to Chico State, when it was Chico State, and not the University of Calif. at Chico!!!!
I lived in Paradise, thank God, that is what kept me sane when I would leave class!

So glad to oblige you with Bidwell! Gather you have done it before yoursefl?
If Chico did not have horrible fog in the winter, I would chose to live there for sure!
