Hello! My name is Susan, I'm 53 yrs. old, married for 30 years, and unemployed (for the moment). I was a "stay-at-home mommy" for more than 20 years, worked as a bank teller for 3 years, then quit that job to finish my bachelor's degree (I graduated last May!!). We took the last several months to remodel/redecorate our house, made it through the holidays, and now I must find a JOB!!
I was member of SparkPeople several years ago (about the time I quit smoking), but life got in my way of continuing with the program. When I saw Dr. Oz talking about this site, I decided to give it another try. I hope connecting with others who share my goals will help me stay on track!

My Goals:
2/1/12: I've set some new goals:
-- To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and for achieving my health and fitness goals, we are planning a trip to HAWAII next year!
-- I want to go somewhere to see whales (cruise to Alaska?). These trips require the ability to sit in ONE airplane seat for a very long time. I want to enjoy not only the travel, but I WILL be fit and eager to explore the islands!
Shorter-term goals:
--Fit into the seat at Music hall.
--Make HEALTHYchoices at fancy restaurant 2/25
--New outfit for "West Side Story" 3/2
--Comfortable & proud at Easter
--More swimsuit ready by Memorial Day
--Lower cholesterol by June doctor's appointment

My Program:
My first plan is to cut out "white" or refined carbs. After just one week of eating whole grains, I'm already feeling less sluggish.

I need to get back to exercising - I do miss it, and I know my body will not change without it. Winter weather makes it tough, but I do have a stationary bike and treadmill in the house. Unfortunately, they are in the room now occupied by my son, and he sleeps during the period I would prefer to be exercising. Will work something out.
