No More"Not Too Bad"--just EXCELLENCE (windy city cyndee)

Hello!

I am a teacher and writer living in Long Island, NY, but originally from Chicago (as you can tell from my nickname, maybe?) I joined in 2012 but was inactive until July 2014, so I'm really a newbie.

I'm over 50 but act like I'm about 15. No, not really, but I am willing to give uberfitness one more try! This time, it's a BEAST. I have literally been on WW for a year and gained six pounds. My activity level has not been high enough, but this time I intend to ...
Hello!

I am a teacher and writer living in Long Island, NY, but originally from Chicago (as you can tell from my nickname, maybe?) I joined in 2012 but was inactive until July 2014, so I'm really a newbie.

I'm over 50 but act like I'm about 15. No, not really, but I am willing to give uberfitness one more try! This time, it's a BEAST. I have literally been on WW for a year and gained six pounds. My activity level has not been high enough, but this time I intend to walk it off (plus diet sensibly using the SparkPeople diet). I have a slightly underactive thyroid but I don't intend to let that stop me from reaching my goals! I am totally inspired by the people I meet here who sometimes face incredible challenges and are so full of fire and determination to progress.

I just changed my page title to reflect the hard truth--"not too bad" doesn't work for me anymore! Excellence is the key--in nutrition, in fitness, in motivation, and in all things! Excellence is not perfection. It is, however, superb.
