Hi, I'm Carol. I've been with Spark People since September 2008. I've had my ups and downs (as most people do) but the thing I want to tell everyone is that there are some really AWESOME people here on the Spark website. I LOVE the group of people that I spend a bit of time with on-line in the 40+ group that I belong to. They are a neat group of people and are very encouraging whether I'm "up" or "down" emotionally, physically, or with my weight loss. That is the most encouraging thing of all. Thanks Spark Guy for setting up this website!!! You couldn't have had more success if you'd tried! :)

Personal Information:
I'm living in beautiful Colorado, near Denver. This is where we ended up as our last duty station before retiring from the Navy! GO NAVY! I will be married 22 years this July 2010. We have 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl ranging in age from 9 to 19. Our oldest son is in the Air Force! We have 1 dog that is 10 years old (Golden Retreiver) and 1 cat (mix) that is a 2 year old trouble-maker. :) I grew up on a fruit farm in Ohio up on the Lake. ( I'll take Colorado snowstorms over Ohio blizzards every time!!!)
I met my husband in Scotland, my eldest son was born in Guam, I was an Athletic Director in Maine, my daughter was born in Ohio, and then we moved to Colorado where my last two sons were born. We've had an interesting life so far. I'm looking forward to the next stage of my life. :)

Other Information:
My all time favorite comedy is "Overboard" with Goldy Hawn. I laugh and cry every time I watch it.
I was a Girl Scout leader for 4 years, then helped out with the Unit for two more. I'm now happy being a Cub Scout leader (beginning my 5th year). I also just finishedbecoming an Assistant Scout Master for my son who is already in Boy Scouts.
My favorite thing to do with my 3 youngest kids is to go tent camping in the summer. We travel to different states and check out their history.

    Hi Carol!! emoticon
    Thank you so much for replying, it was wonderful to hear from you!!! Sorry to hear that you are not doing as well as you wish and still having a bit of a struggle to find the motivation. I want you to know that you are not alone!! I strayed away from posting, tracking and being involved and I lost the inspiration AND MOTIVATION that is flowing over here in Sparkland. It helps me and others so much to be here and be involved. I just recently went back to tracking faithfully and I am doing wonderous things!! The scale is moving again in the right direction!! I have not made any big progress along my journey in numbers but I am 20lbs less than I probably would be if not here. I swore I never wanted to see the digits that began with a 2 under my feet again!! I have better eating habits than I use to and supply my body with the water it has been craving all these years!! So...I feel that I am making some progress. You were a very important part of our team and shared your encouraging words and motivated so many of us to get all that walking exercise we did last winter. That was great! When you give support to others you also receive it in so many ways..it just makes you more aware that it's not the destination that matters but the journey that lies ahead. Together we are stronger than we are standing alone. emoticon We are here for you any time and you can be here as much or as little as you wish. We are rooting for you!!! emoticon
    Be well...hope to see ya over at 40+!!!
    Hugs, me
