Don't Wanna Be A Turkey This Thanksgiving....

Gobbling everything around me!! I want to eat sensibly, mindfully and watch those portions!

Hi, my name is Melissa. I'm nearing 50 years old and I am totally blind. I lost my sight due to Type 1 Diabetes, but I don't let that little inconvenience get me down much! I am an adjunct professor of psychology at my local community college and a licenced profressional counselor. Since joining SP in 2008 I've lost 20 pounds. Yes, I am losing slowly, but I'm losing!

My Goals:
I just finished the Fall 5% challenge with not much success. I lost, but not my 5%. I still have a few weeks left with the BLC26 and am putting forth a real effort!

My Program:
I am a member of Weight Watchers now and it is working for me. I also plan to do every challenge within my BLC26 challenge to the best of my ability to build healthy habits that will last!


Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes and living the wild life in my younger days! I "celebrated" 45 years of being diabetic this May. I live in lovely South VA and have a wonderful husband and spoiled mutt named Sassy. She is a handful, but it is worth it!

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I am an avid belly dancer, but have only recently started to dance again since my mother's death on 12/12/12! I still have not gotten back into belly dancing mostly due to transportation problems since my dad had a stroke in 2013 and he was my ride! I enjoy water! I love swimming, water aerobics, water jogging and more! I walk a mile with leslie Samsone everyday and sometimes more. I actually enjoy exercising! I love summer!! I also try to make it to Curves at least 3 times a week and do the Curves Smart program which pushes me to improve my workout each time! Plus I am an avid follower of Jessica Smith's video workouts!

Having Guest does give one the impetus to declutter and get things done around the house.

Just dropping by to say hello! I love that you are continuously active on this site. I don't like when people I've come to consider friends drop off silently; I've been guilty of the same, actually! But not you! Way to go!!!
