I am a newly retired Kindergarten teacher and excited and a bit scared about this next phase of my life. I want to make the most of this time and know I need to be healthy and fit so I can. My kids and grandkids are so important to me and I want to be active and healthy for them as well as me. This is the time for real focus on ME - more than ever before so I can enjoy this new phase of life.

I love crafts and quilting and am enjoying fixing up my little home.

UPDATE: I've been retired nearly 2 years now. Enjoying it - but still struggling with losing weight - making necessary changes to a healthy lifestyle so I can truly enjoy ALL of my retirement!


Member Since: 6/18/2015

Fitness Minutes: 5,192

My Goals:
At 68 and 307 pounds I need to start taking care of myself! Retired for 20+ months now and still adjusting. I want to be healthy to enjoy this phase of my life - physically, mentally, emotionally. I've been living to eat and am a BIG couch potato. Change must happen or my health will pay. One step at a time but that first step is a big one! CONSISTENCY is also a BIG need!


My Program:
Doing SparkPeople every day.
Member of local TOPS Club.
Following low carb diet plan.
Exercising - at least walking - every day for 30 minutes at least.
Journaling food, exercise, and thoughts of the journey.
Reading valuable information on healthy living - lots of SparkPeople articles and other books.



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I love motivational posters and sayings - I'm putting them up where I exercise and in my kitchen.
I love crafts and am enjoying having the time to get back to them. Keeping my hands - and mind - busy and creative is a good thing!
