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.

    Hahaha I definitely understand about making yourself a priority someday. However, you kind of already did when you got your degree. emoticon

    I'm so glad you get the comment about how I see myself. I think part of this comes from my childhood. You are so kind and I so appreciate you taking the time to comment on my blogs! Big hugs!!!

    - banned years ago. It never stopped me from reading her blogs, so made no comment. Something was off kilter then, I suspect there is still.

    My gripe was not that a friend leaves us but the admission that she never was interested. Of course it’s very disturbing when someone vanishes esoecially a fragile soul. I suspect there is more to this departure than her parting shot... but I was ban
