First Day of the Rest of My Life

I am a recently retired educator who went from a fairly active lifestyle to a sedentary one.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 75 pounds by Christmas. I am desperately trying to improve my health and stave off full blown diabetes with sensible nutrition and regular exercise.

My Program:
Even though I just found SP a few days ago, I have been following a healthy eating plan since 11/07 and have lost 22 pounds so far. I ride a recumbent bike for 35 minutes a day (25 minutes first thing in the morning/ 10 minutes at bedtime). I hope to add additional forms of exercise gradually.

Personal Information:
I live about 50 miles from Atlanta.

Other Information:
I love to read (especially cosy mysteries and historical fiction). I love to travel (so far, Canada, Mexico, England-twice, and Scotland). I love music (particularly bluegrass and Celtic)

Stopped by to see how you're doing. Have always wanted to live near water ... I'm on a small lake .. not quite the same as where you are.
