Hi There

Welcome to my world! I retired from my job as a correctional counselor at a medium security prison at the end of July. Naturally I still consider myself quite young and plan to feel this way about myself for the foreseeable future. Who wouldn't? And now I want to concentrate on my health and vitality (and music, books, family and faith). I joined Spark in 2010 and have lost and gained and am now back where I started. So I'm not going to make any great declarations about how much I'm going ...
Welcome to my world! I retired from my job as a correctional counselor at a medium security prison at the end of July. Naturally I still consider myself quite young and plan to feel this way about myself for the foreseeable future. Who wouldn't? And now I want to concentrate on my health and vitality (and music, books, family and faith). I joined Spark in 2010 and have lost and gained and am now back where I started. So I'm not going to make any great declarations about how much I'm going to lose, or how great I'm going to feel or how much butt I'm going to kick. I'm feeling positive and motivated. I'm making a plan. The weight ticker is back on the page. And surprisingly, I don't really care who sees my weight any more. The ticker is for me. I expect to enjoy watching it go down. See? Positive thinking and motivation. It's working already. Glad you stopped by. Hope you'll stop again. In the meantime laugh, love and enjoy life. That's what it's for.

Congrats on the two pounds down. emoticon
Probably a good decision not to get a dog. Years of commitment. They're almost as needy as men emoticon
So how is your mum feeling?

Hey Ms Retiree,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm looking forward to reading more blogs from you. Hint, hint. I was going to leave a comment on your status but when I tried to "like" it, it said your friend feed is set to private. Sniff, sniff.
Yeah, I didn't need to eat the junk. But driving home from Mass Sunday I thought I should reward myself and the van turned into Tim Horton's. Something it may do once a month. My brother Bob, who used to weigh 310, and is now down to 190, never gave up his Sunday stop at Tim Horton's. Sounds like you're pretty close to IF yourself. Give it a shot for a week. OK...I'll take that steam bath now..... emoticon
