I have overcome many obstacles in my life and my goal is to conquer one more, my weight. As I drag on through middle age, so does my waistline and hips. I want to climb a staircase without getting out of breath or my quads burning. I have started to eat more healthy, and I am working at completing at least 30 minutes of walking or a cardio routine every day.
During the daytime hours I teach middle school language arts. You think that would keep me thinner, just from the stress, but it doesn't. One nice thing, the students are encouraging.
I am a cancer survior...Stage 3C melanoma. I am so thankful to be around and able to challenge myself to live a more healthier lifestyle.

Fitness Minutes: 28,819

My Goals:
To be physically active at least 30 minutes each day to
become more physically fit, so I can hike and climb the beautiful White Mountains. I turned 55 and have not met the goal of losing weight that I set when I was 50 and started this page. If I don't work on this goal, I will not be able to do all the things I want to do when I retire.

My Program:
I am trying to eat within the framework that SP has given me to follow. I am cutting my calories and focusing on eating less fats and carbs. I have been able to do this most days, though there have been a few days that I have not done so well.

Personal Information:
I live in New Hampshire, not far from the ocean, but only an hour's drive to the mountains.

I love my career, teaching, and my students motivate and inspire me each and everyday.
