Welcome to my page. I am a 60 year old high school teacher who has an amazing husband,two wonderful sons (40 and 30), and two amazing granddaughters. I joined Spark People awhile ago, hoping to move forward in my quest to be in great shape. I have made progress, but mostly in strength and health. I had always been a healthy eater- both in what I chose and how much. I have felt too heavy for most of my life. Then, I gained 30 pounds over a few months two years ago. After being tested for several possibilities, I was told that the likely cause was stress. I look at pictures from 30 years ago (when I thought I was fat- but wasn't) and I yearn to be the weight that I was then. I am very active and have worked out and dieted for years, but apparently not intensely and consistently enough. I Generally, I have always put many people, my career, and my volunteer activities first. Yet, I know that I need to take my weight goals as a higher priority. I am almost 60 and it's time for me! I want to be able to bike across the country and climb mountains with my husband. I want our retirement years to be filled with our dream activities. So, I better get going!! So, today I start- striving again for intensity and consistency. I am "rekindling the spark" as I move into the towards "60" and looking forward to more noticeable progress by the end of the coming year.

    I am not the greatest piano player either...I have a keyboard but my favorite song is Fur Elise. I was actually learning "Stay" by Rhianna just before Christmas but haven't played since. I try anything but country. I am not a fan of coutry at all. lol
    Yes I hope we all will rock this challenge and get those smart goals done.
    Have a great day.

    Hi! Thanks for "friending" me! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, but we've been out of town for a few days. Didn't take my computer but took my nook. I could get on sparkpeople but it was not efficient in typing. Oh well, better than nothing I guess.

    Looking forward to getting to know you!!
