Hi, I'm Christi. And I'm proud to say that I'm a Scarlet Dragon for the BL Winter Challenge! Whoo Hoo!

I've been on Spark for a few years and I've lost weight, gained it back and lost it again. I'm learning that this is about my health and not just about weight. This is the never-ending journey. There is no final destination. It's all about the journey. And when I stop doing what I know works, it stops working. Imagine that.

I want to be healthy. I want to feel good. I want to be strong. I want to enjoy my life. Today, I take up the journey again. One day at a time, I will achieve my goals.

I've reset my weight tracker to my current weight, and have now set it as my highest weight. So I never want to weigh more than 189 again!

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in north central Illinois. Love dogs, books, romantic comedies, classical music and the scent of cloves. Last year I bought myself a piano keyboard as a retirement gift. It's wonderful and I play almost daily. I enjoy reading, walking, working puzzles like crosswords, word games, crypto quizzes, Sudoku and logic puzzles, usually while I'm watching the news. I am proud to be an American.

Enjoying retirement!
