Sparkpeople - living in Japan

I'm an American who has lived in Japan for over 30 years. I'm working on losing weight and staying healthy. My husband and I have started going to a municipal run sports center to work out together. It is fun to do this together, and support each other.

Personal Information:
I grew up in MN. but now live in Japan. I'm married to a wonderful husband. We have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and 3 grandkids. The son with the kids lives in Japan, so we get a chance to see the grandkids.

I love walking, reading, playing drums, being involved in a worship team at church, and spending time with friends and family.

Other Information:
You may be surprised to find out how easy it becomes to exercise regularly, eat well, and reach a healthy weight when you stop treating your amazing body as the problem, and start using it as the solution. - Dean Anderson (Spark People)

"If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"

You are the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

and I choose to move in the direction of my goal, even when I am afraid or unsure. Whenever I fall, I stand up, brush myself off, and keep moving toward my goal."
