I am a RETIRED high school administrator (retired with the Class of 2007!) I loved my job and the teenagers and teachers I worked with and I miss them all very much. Instead of sitting around, I am now operating a small convenience store/gas station (with a huge car wash attached!) My husband is learning to do the maintenance on the car wash and helps out a lot.

I'm excited about getting committed to exercising (all kinds!) and eating healthy. This has been a great site and I love all of my new friends who are willing to give me that little "kick in the butt" when I need it to stay focused.
