I am loving every minute I'm here at Spark People. I retired from teaching elementary in 1997. I was a pet sitter for nine years and now I am fully retired. We'll see how long that lasts. I have been struggling with weight since I left teaching. I gained 50 pounds the first year. I sing in two choirs and dabble in crafts. I love musicals and movies, love to swim and walk and I spend a lot of time with family. Like Snoopy I feel that " life is just too short not to live it up a bit."

Member Since: 8/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 3,483

My Goals:
To enjoy life and be able to continue in the activities I love to do {singing,& travel)

To get back to a healthy size. To avoid getting type 2 diabetes, because it is in my family.

My Program:
I watch my fat and sugar intake. I try to eat a balanced, healthy diet. I swim and walk for exercise.
I do best when exercise is presented as a game.
I love to be helpful and enjoy visiting seniors that live alone.
I play Euchre with a wonderful group of friends every Mon. We take turns hosting. I also play every other Friday at my church. We have lunch together (each one brings their own) and dessert, tea & coffee are provided.
Every Friday I go to "Pizza Club" so called because we meet at a pizza restaurant. There are from 4 to 35 there each week. Love it, love it, love it. This is the group I usually go on my cruises with. We're planning one for the fall to the Mediterranean

Personal Information:
Retired teacher, cum pet sitter who loves to sing and perform in musical theatre,

I am involved in a craft group for seniors and often teach the class myself.

I love movies - especially sentimental sop and children's movies'
I love to tell jokes - and I collect trivia-I'm a spermologist from way back.
I have a wonderful circle of friends. They come from all walks of life. I love to keep informed of what is going on but I hate bad news. I feel we don't have enough "feel good" stuff in our lives.

Other Information:
I used to love being in community theatre and when I ws unable to perform I moved backstage but now that's all over. I do consult from time to time because I'm able to come up with some good ideas for props, sets and costumes but now I am mostly just in the audience

I come from a huge family (13th of 14) of which we are 4 survivors. My siblings are my best friends. I can't afford to lose any more.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

    Again, Congratulations Beautiful!

    Lucky you, you are losing weight too! Try not to do too much. Have to think of yourself first. I think I've turned another corner - hope it also results in wt. loss. But then, that depends on me, doesn't it? LOL

    Have a great weekend!
