Hi Diane,
I was Director of Claims for Atlantic Canada for Intact Insurance, formerly ING.
We are heading to the Carolina's for April and expect to spend Jan. through to end of April in Florida next year. We do want to try Arizona one year as we hear it is wonderful and we are both golfers so I want to see if the ball really does go further in the desert. LOL.
I will definitely be sticking to Spark as I want a loooong , healthy retirement so I need to get some weight off.
Glad you are enjoying the warmth. We are freezing up here.
Karen

Hi Karen, glad you decided to make 2010 your year. Yes, it takes a lot of times to use SP but it's all worth it, especially not that your retiring. What kind of work are you doing. I use to work for Transport Canada in Staffing. I was lucky to retire at 50 so I've been at this retiring stuff for a while. We live in the south for the winter, we're in Arizona this winter. We've done Texas and Florida but Arizona is our favorite. Keep in touch and let me know how your doing. Diane

Hi Diane,

I see you are retired. I am retiring for good in September but right now in a transition phase working part time mentoring my successor. I love the retired life. Now I have the time to get serious about exercising and no more stress eating. I like waking up without an alarm!
We have 4 kids between us and 9 grandkids between the ages of less than a month and 18 years old. So much fun. emoticon

Hope you are enjoying Nova Scotia. You and I share the same goal, I am also determined that 2010 will be my year to get fit and healthy.
I visited the UK for the first time last summer and had such a great time. My son and is family moved to Greenwich, so I expect while they are there I will be a frequent visitor.

I also just joined SP this month and I agree a lot of information. It takes a lot of time to track the nutrition and fitness but worth it as I think it keeps you accountable and it will really work. emoticon

Hi Maur. Good to hear from you. I hope SP is helping you in getting fit and healthy. I try to write down everything I eat in the nutrition part and that's the biggest help of all. It really makes you accountable.

You live in a beautiful part of the Maritimes and it's not as cold there as the rest of NS. Were they laying off people on the Cat? That would have been a pretty good job. Do you have a family? I have 2 kids and 7 grandkids, keeps us busy. Keep in touch. Diane

Hi Diane,

I choose my long term & short term goals, but I'm still working on doing the 3 streaks - drinking water & exercising everyday actually I'm doing good with my other streak

I live in Yarmouth NS & I'm unemployed right now. I used to work on the Cat. So, I'm not sure what I'm going to do for work now.

Hi Bluerock. I bought the book "The Spark" and it's very interesting. It says to make short term goals and long term goals and then choose 3 small things that you'll change this week like eating 2 fruits, drinking 8 cups of water, walking 10 min. Making streaks, seeing how many days you can do one things seems to be the secrets. Good luck.

I'm from Dieppe and am retired. Where are you from? Bye for now Diane

Welcome to SP. I'm from Moncton, NB and have been with SP since last May and have lost 30 lbs and feel great. We are spending our winter in Phoenix, AZ so it's easier to exercise but not good for the diet. Too many friends!!! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have and watch the lbs come off. Diane

Hi everyone. I only joined SP yesterday and am still wading through all the info. Have lived in Nova Scotia for 16 months having moved here from the UK. Loving it here so far, and am determined that 2010 is going to be MY year!!! emoticon

The world can be your oyster, but first you have to open the shell!
