Flying through life on a wing and a prayer.





Staying up, moving along, and glad my dad gave me a place to skate every winter.





I'm leading, joining in, and following on my way down from the mountain peak.

Member Since: 10/29/2006

SparkPoints: 19,883

Fitness Minutes: 11,655

My Goals:
Love others.

Live a healthy life.

Lend my efforts to making the world healthier, happier, and more peaceful.



My Program:
Spend more time with others, physically and emotionally support them, and center on them through the day.

Concentrate on food that is better for my body and the environment and move more daily.

Pray, volunteer, and take a role in the political life of the community.

Personal Information:
I have lived throughout the Intermountain West most of my life and people call me Mary Merth.

I'm older than I ever thought I would be (68) and became -- literally -- one of the first baby boomers as I was born on the day the war ended in Europe 1945.



Other Information:
I have never had time to do all the things I wanted, but I've made my living writing and teaching.

I love skiing, ice skating, and bicycling, but physical problems are preventing that -- at least for now.

I have never been married, never had children, and live alone. I really am surprised that I'm no longer 21.

I haven't traveled as much as I have wanted, but I'm doing the best I can about that now.

I love politics and have volunteered for liberal politicians throughout my adult life. Needless to say I am used to losing more than my share of elections.

My favorite writers and poets are Edna St. Vincent Millay, Robert Frost, Wallace Stegner, Sara Teasdale, Gwendolyn Brooks, Harper Lee, and Langston Hughes.

I like rock and folk music best, but find something I like in most types of music.

Also wanted to congratulate you on how well you're doing on the weight loss challenge. I noticed your note about the doctor's office scale. You can't go by that because of the difference in clothes, and time of day weighed (after eating/drinking) Weighing at home on the same scale, at the same time of day, with about the same amount of clothes is your best bet for tracking your actual weight loss.

Sorry I didn't answer so soon, but I was looking for your answer on my page and didn't see it until today.

That's pretty cool...there is so much unemployment despite the area generally being good for employment and its not being reported because people are not getting benefits.

Wishing you well,

barbara
