"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." C.S. Lewis


I am a retired teacher trying to make healthy choices every day. DH and I have more than our share of health problems, but I find that Spark People is a wonderful resource and support group!


Member Since: 9/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 166,723

My Goals:
To be positive with each new challenge.
To learn new things.
To enjoy the moment.
To be grateful. "In all things, give thanks"
To really listen to others.
To forgive others.
To be a role model.
To be a more patient caregiver for my DH.







My Program:
Choose healthy foods most of the time.
Eat mindfully.
Weigh every morning.
Wear Apple watch to motivate me to move more, to climb more steps and to breathe
Weight Watchers meetings weekly. (week 12 of ZOOM meetings) 5/30/2020
Water aerobics ( our pool is scheduled to reopen for small classes on 6/15/2020)






Personal Information:
My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.

In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.

I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.


Other Information:
Because of DH's underlying conditions and the virus, we have not spent time with family since mid March. We worship online with our local church members.

I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences. I enjoy walking outdoors.
