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.

    Haha! Steve, for fun awhile back, we threw mugs of hot water into the air when the temps were -15. It freezes mid-air and makes ice crystals all over. It is neat at night with lights shining on it!
    I also have occasionally,turned my freezer off in the garage and left the door open. The outside air was about 20 degrees colder than the freezer temperature! NOw that is energy conservation. We leave leftovers on top of our garage freezer all winter to save fridge and freezer space.

    emoticon Happy Valentine's Day Steve! Thanks for all your support!

    Thank you, friend, for all the things
    That mean so much to me--
    For concern and understanding
    You give abundantly.

    Thanks for listening with your heart;
    For cheering me when I'm blue;
    For bringing out the best in me;
    And just for being you.
