I'm a 60-year-old guy living with my husband in Clearlake, California. An accident in May 2014, along with 3 months in a wheelchair, forced me to think about my health and fitness in a new way. Now that I've recovered, I'm more focused than ever on achieving all my goals and then maintaining them for the long haul.

I am Director of Campus Operations for the Lake and Colusa County Campuses of Woodland Community College. I love my team and working with the students. This is an area that desperately needs higher education opportunities, and I'm grateful that our campus is available to help.

My Spark History:

Reached original goal weight of 173 on April 30, 2015.
Reached second goal weight of 168 on August 7, 2015.
Current weight: 164 as of November 5, 2015.

I am in the best shape of my life right now. I am so grateful to SparkPeople and all my fabulous friends who have supported me in this journey.

    Thanks for commenting on my gorilla blog. I used the word "gorilla" because in Venezuelan slang, the call "engorilado(a)" to an addicted person that is so upset because it doesn't have drug, and by comparison, to any furious person. I really need my walks! I can't believe I reached that point!

    Hey Steve,
    Thanks for the comments on my blog, "Dear Santa . . . ." If there is pee on the floor, I can't blame it on Thor because he's a product of my imagination. Nevertheless, Martha is accustomed to my mischief and my numerous pair of shoes.
    Thanks for stopping by my Chicken Little blog, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!!!!!!" Just call your classmate Chicken Little.
    The last time it snowed in Houston was 1985-- so they tell me. I was living in New Orleans when it snowed on Christmas day in 2007 or 2008. so we get snow down South occasionally, but it rare.
