I finally got it!

Hello, My name is Sorcha [Keltik_Heart]. I'm 61 years old. After reaching my highest all time weight over the winter of 2012, I was miserable and filled with aches and pains. It was my 60th year on earth and I felt like I was 90! So, I simply committed to myself to change the way I ate - completely. As a pre-emptive strike on the exercise front, I got a treadmill so I would have no excuses not to at least walk.

Between Aug. 1, 2013 and May 24, 2014, I've lost 69 lbs and am now ...
Hello, My name is Sorcha [Keltik_Heart]. I'm 61 years old. After reaching my highest all time weight over the winter of 2012, I was miserable and filled with aches and pains. It was my 60th year on earth and I felt like I was 90! So, I simply committed to myself to change the way I ate - completely. As a pre-emptive strike on the exercise front, I got a treadmill so I would have no excuses not to at least walk.

Between Aug. 1, 2013 and May 24, 2014, I've lost 69 lbs and am now very close to my initial personal goal. On Dec. 23, 2013, I signed up with SP to help me keep on track for the rest of my journey and the maintenance to follow.

Family life: I'm married to my Anam Cara (Soul Mate) and we have been together for 17 years. Our kids are of the fur variety: two rescue kitties - Binnie (Tuxedo), and Olwyn (Tortie). My husband is from Wales and I'm from California, but we currently reside in New England.

Other things: I love to design and make jewelry, read, spend time on the internet, study Celtic culture and history, sing and record songs in Scots Gaelic, watch movies, and travel. I work full-time for a college in our town, but I look forward to taking my retirement early in just under 2 years so that I can pursue my creative vocation.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!
Take the time to thank the Veterans in your life,
remember those that gave all to keep us safe and free.

I will ALWAYS support our troops and all they do to make
the best of the situations our politicians can't keep their
noses out of!!
