I am a retired mental health therapist....specialized in severe mental illness and worked as both a therapist and director of a mental health facility for the acutely mentally ill homeless and poor. My biggest challenge these days is support/caretaking....of my 95 yr. old mother, of my husband who has stage 4 metastatic ocular melanoma, and of my 11 year old cat who has chronic pancreatitis!. I find great peace and pleasure in the mountains and spend much of my summer and early fall walking and hiking in the Yellowstone area. Winters we spend indoors, but I love the ice and snow....crystalline beauty.
Reasons to Lose Weight
1. To increase health and vitality.
2. To design and begin building my future health (and the future begins anew each minute).
3. To wear clothes I enjoy and feel good in.
4. So I can get dressed and then forget about how I look and enjoy the day without that unpleasant feeling of �fat awareness� lurking in the back of my mind.

My Goals:
My goal is to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.....about 46 pounds less than I now weigh....and in so doing lower my blood pressure, increase my energy, and thereby enjoy life more fully. My target date is to achieve my goal weight by the first week of November 2016....at this pace I should have made permanent changes in my eating habits. OBOY!

My Program:
At this time, I am tracking my calories and exercise on SP although I have modified their suggestions slightly as far as distribution goes I also check their nutritional feedback each night...this is an incredible tool and I very much appreciate it.

Personal Information:
I am a native Californian who has spent most of my adult life in the South/SouthEast and in South/Central America as my husbands career kept us on the move.We are now retired and living in Idaho....I so love it here....the abundance of natural beauty is a constant delight.

Thank you for stopping by my page. I smiled at your opening statement. I class myself as a friendly introvert, and it was only recently that I realised being introverted is not a flaw, it's just different to being extroverted!
I hope you enjoy your weekend :)

Hello Robin, It sounds like you had a career that was demanding, but so needed. I like Celtic dancers and music, too. A friend of mine had some DVD's he shared with me and I was hooked. I am also an avid reader. Jean
