I am a wife, mother of 6 and grandmother of 4. Family is very important to me. I am a writer, formerly retired, English coordinator and Principal. I love traveling and teaching other English, especially literature. I am now 54 and feel 30 on the inside. When I look in the mirror I don't see the person I feel like. I want to see that, but I realise I need to make serious Life Style changes, which I have. I now walk, exercise and try to eat more fruits and vegetables. I take one day at a time. Spark has helped me know I can succeed with the help and encouragement of Spark People around the world. Hello everyone, welcome to my world.
