I decided to start anew and reset my goal ticker again in 2016. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and some heart issues. As of Jan. 2014, they are all under control with medication. Hopefully, by losing more weight, I can eventually cut down on some meds. 2014 ended on a bad note when my dad passed away in November. 2015 was the Year of the Concert for me & my husband.

I have kept off 45 lbs. and am happy to be under 200 lbs. Thanks to SparkPeople, I have the tools and the will power to do it! And, most of all, the support!


Member Since: 10/18/2010

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and get fit! I want to be able to stop some of the medication if I eat better and improve my health.

I want to live to see grandchildren!


My Program:
I will exercise 5 times per week and try to fit in little "mini sessions" whenever I can. I am committing to at least 25 minutes a day. NO computer time until the exercise is done!

I will not give in to emotional eating as I have done so many times in the past.

I will NOT eat past 9 PM.

I will plan my meals and track every little bite! If I ate it, I have to own up to it!



Personal Information:
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart for 39 years. We have 2 adult sons.

I have lived on Long Island (NY) all of my life.

I hope to move to VA or NC when I retire. Or maybe CA near our older son.


Other Information:
I love reading Stephen King novels. Own most of them!

I enjoy sitting outside on my deck and walking by the lake in the preserve nearby. Watch Yankee baseball and like hockey too.

I like listening to a variety of music - I especially love The Cure, Usher, Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, Steely Dan, Mary J. Blige, Elton John and I'm a huge John Lennon fan too.

    Good morning Debb...Thanks for the input...that's exactly what I've been thinking about! And down here it's no joke to be without a/c for even a day! And my guy will be gone most of May and part of the summer so I'd have to go with the guys I don't want to give my money to!

    The other consideration is, if I'm going to have to do it soon (the unit is well over 21 years), I think it's better to get it done before I retire. This way I can have it paid off before. It's been a pretty expensive year so far, with the car having to be replaced (technically that was end of 2016).

    I'll keep you posted.

    YES! Thanks for the empathy. I remember you had issues. I've been trying to take the high road, but it's really getting harder! They're driving me to drink...and I don't!

    Thanks for the hat & scarf; even though I've been using them; I still have the sinus and throat problem, I think it's viral & will have to run it's course. I'm not really sick, just don't feel quite up to par! I think what would really cure it is a week on the beach! Lol
