Hello. My name is Cindy. I am rapidly approaching 50. (Just a few months to go.) I joined SP at the end of June in 2009. I decided when I joined that ultimately my goal was to head into my fifties being fit! I am within a few pounds of my goal weight, but more importantly, I am in better shape than I was when I was in my 20's!

When I started, I was a walker and I enjoyed walking. Soon, that wasn't enough so I started incorporating running into my walking routine. My walking has morphed into running. When I started running, I could make it about 1/4 mile, walk, then run again.

I have been successful using sparkpeople and still rely on it. Maintaining my weight will be an ongoing battle especially after the holidays each year. But each year, it seems a bit easier to take off those holiday pounds.

Weight loss is not a linear graph that goes straight down, but rather a line graph with it's highs and lows and fluctuations and eventually stabilizing at a point where you feel successful and satisfied.

Personal Information:
I live in PA, but am a native of New England. I have 4 kids (2 in college, 1 in HS and 1 in elementary). My passion is teaching (particularly math). I am fortunate that I have a job that I love!

Other Information:
I love doing Sudoku, KenKen, and Kakuro. And I love relating math to anything in "real" life. (Drives my students and my kids crazy!)

    I was just checking in to see how everything is going. I know you are busy, but I sure miss the chatting.

    We are working on the last 79 (or so) days of the year, so let's give it our all. I know I have had some issues this last week, but I am ready to make myself the priority I should be to myself.

    Remember that you are important and you are worth the time you need for yourself. This journey is very important.

    emoticon let's work on getting into that goal outfit.

    I sure miss seeing you spark and chatting in the chat room on our team. I know you are back to teaching and working on your masters, so you must be extremely busy.

    I just wanted to stop by and tell you I have missed you.
