My favorite photo. I refreshed the humming bird with sugar water after it had flown into my window.

In my mid-thiries I had this painted in my first made to order Regency Ball gown. I'm still dancing

Nine years ago with my daughter. I should have started my diet even before then.

I have 5 pics in my gallery

Foot pain has limited my mobility and kept me from my favorite activity. I hope to get a lot more walking in as I drop the pounds!

My Goals:
I want to be down a couple of inches in the waist before my next birthday and at my target weight at next year's 62nd birthday. I want to sew more dance more get out for walks with my darling dachshund Manny.

My Program:
Be more active - not hard when 90% of my waking hours were spent in a recliner, cut down on the starchy foods I regularly eat, avoid the Australian style licorice and Kettle sea salt and vinegar chips I binged on and start soon on the Biggest Loser Wii game.

Personal Information:
I've visited elsewhere but have lived all my life in Southern California which I love, particularly west LA. I am 22 yrs married with a teenage daughter and read a lot. No longer working, I was a software engineer on Unix systems and communications equipment.

Other Information:
Jane Austen is my favorite author. I read primarily science fiction and fantasy. Favorite authors include Le Guin, Niven, MacAvoy, Tepper, McKillip, and Hambly, but since they don't write 200 books a year I read a great many books by others. I like good historical novels, but few can compare with Heyer, O'Brian and Dunnett. Last year my daughter got me into reading vampire stories with the Twilight series and this year it's the Sookie Stackhouse she is into. I kept the Laurel K. Hamilton to myself.

Thanks for stopping by my page and adding me as a friend! You're already progressing well with your weight loss, so apparently you're doing a lot right - for me it was portion control and carefully tracking everything that went in my mouth. It's entirely possible that you won't wind up needing the WLS if you continue the way you've started - hope you stay in touch so I can track your melting away .
