Practicing Consistency is the Key!

I used to love to workout, using cardio and weight lifting regularly. After a painful divorce, I gained quite a bit of weight. I fell in love with a wonderful man and moved to another state and lost 50 pounds, having been reengergized by love! :-) I gained. 13 pounds back, but. Managed to lose that and more from March-July during my first year on Spark People a d got down to 121!

Lots of things have happened for me since I joined. I got married in May,2009 and had cochlear implant surgery (I am hearing amazingly well!!), and major surgery. I also got my LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor) in April, 2014! Studying for that exam really took its toll on my weight and I hit 150-a weight I have not been at since November, 2004! I hope I never lose control like this again.

Hi Kathy,

Yes, it will be fun to get started on the Fall Challenge. I do so enjoy those. I started out 47 years ago teaching French and English at Purdue Univ. After seeing I liked teaching languages better than English composition and lit., I added a Spanish degree and dropped the English--and having been teaching those two at a Michigan college ever since. I think I love languages so much because I love travel and interacting with people in different countries.

Did I say I was MOVING to a warmer climate? No, I am retiring in December, but I'm not letting go of my home in Michigan. I just plan to stay the heck away from there during most of the winter. They're saying this winter is going to be a repeat of last year, and that was BRUTAL!!!

I probably won't get back to DC until next summer. Are you there?
