My son and I; I think this is the best pic of me I've taken in a while.





Taking a picture of myself--not easy to get a flattering shot!



I have 3 pics in my gallery

Just Me

I'm a wife and mother. My kids have grown up a lot since I started here on Spark People. A new wrinkle in my life is unemployment and being over 50 and overweight as well. I must take hold of my weight or it will kill me.

SparkPoints: 12,211

Fitness Minutes: 4,298

My Goals:
I am getting below 200 in 2013.

My Program:
The only thing that has ever worked for me is to minimize high carb eating. I intend to continue this process now that holidays are over. If I do find myself eating foods high in carbs, I mind the portion size--I avoid pigging out on fat-creating foods!

Personal Information:
My hobbies used to be centered on my job as a teacher. Now I still read voraciously and take an online class to satisfy my intellectual needds. My hobbies now are centered around my home and trying to get healthier and more fit. At times I can get fired up about knitting or crochet. I am a fan of FlyLady's principals. I like to travel.

Other Information:
I'm unemployed and it's been an adjustment finance-wise. Fortunately, my husband is my best friend. I have two loving and supportive children that are teens now. I love reading and watching TV. Wish I loved running and sweating!

“The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.” Yet still, they began their journeys, Mike Dooley

“In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won't be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest.” - Mike Dooley

“I do believe that the single most important thing I could ever share with you with regard to maximizing the health, harmony, and happiness in your life can be summed up in just two words: 'Love Yourself'” - Mike Dooley

Have a great weekend
