My Goals:
I have 50+ pounds to lose and am determined to stick with it. I joined Spark People with the mindset that I would keep myself accountable. I will set S.M.A.R.T. goals to achieve the best version of myself by adopting a lifestyle that includes a fitness and nutrition program. My goal is to become the best version of myself.

My Program:
Grow Young Fitness (an online fitness program for seniors)
Gym membership
BL/BLC challenges

Personal Information:
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart. We have a son and daughter and 2 grandchildren. We are both homebodies because we moved a lot when we were first married. We lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Middletown, Ohio; Chicago Illinois; Beulah, North Dakota; Yuma, Arizona; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I am a retired elementary school teacher. I loved teaching and love retirement. I enjoy cooking, reading, gardening and spending time with friends and family. I love sunshine and the rocky ocean shores.

Other Information:
When I was little I used to cry because I was so skinny. HA! Until I was in my 40s I could eat as much and whatever I wanted without gaining weight. Then, my metabolism slowed down. Yikes. I had never had to control my eating before. I tried losing weight on my own but until this past March (2018) when I joined Spark People did I actually get serious about it. I tried some spark and calendar challenges but it wasn't until I joined the White Rabbit BLC37 team that I actually felt I would have the support and encouragement to be held accountable in developing a healthy lifestyle change.
