I'm a 64 yr. old retired healthcare worker. The most important things in my life are my family, friends, and my Christian faith.
My name is Pearle.

My favorite saying is: " I didn't intend to do anything today, and so far I am right on schedule!"
I am trying to change that though, by becoming more active.

Member Since: 1/11/2008

Fitness Minutes: 7,228

My Goals:
To loose weight, excersise and live a healthier lifestyle .
The weight loss is going slower than I had anticipated, but I will get to my goal eventully

My Program:
Counting calories and joined CURVES for excersise.
I go 3 times a week.
Don't think I could do it by myself. Sparkpeople is a Godsend! I love it.

Personal Information:
I was born in Vermont and lived there until shortly after my marriage . We moved to my husbands home state of Montana in 1968. Have lived here since. It's a great place to live!!
Together we raised 3 wonderful daughters who are beautiful inside and out. They are my best friends!
My hubby of 41 years and I started camping about 7 years ago and LOVE it. There are so many beautiful places to camp here in Montana.
My passion is Hospice work. I was employed by our local hospital's Hospice Department for 11 years. I worked mostly graveyard shift as a CNA and Respite Aide. I started out as a volunteer, and have now gone back to that.

Other Information:
I like movies. Just about everything except science fiction or violence. Actors I like are RobinWilliams, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicolson,
Meryl Streep, Glen Close, Diane Keaton.
I spent 6 years (almost every day) researching and compiling information for my geneology. I used Family Tree Maker Program and had so much fun finding out about both sides of my family and my husbands. I did it so my 3 children and 8 grandchildren would know their heritage.
I sing in our church choir and have held many offices in the various churches where I've been a member.

    Hi Pearle, you have got to be kidding me!!!! Isn't that something that we both just got back from Alaska!!!! Yes, we loved it too. It also was our first cruise, and we really enjoyed it. I wouldn't mind going back in 5 or 6 years. We were on the Sapphire Princess. Which one were you on?
    By the way, you really have done well on losing wt. Congrats. Hugs, Annie

    Hi Bigskygem!

    Thank you for visiting my web page! Yours is beautiful - and I can so relate to the clean house/broken computer cartoon! It is so unusual to find someone who has lived in Highgate. (Chances are it hasn't changed much since you were here.) I would love to see Montana.
    Congrats on some major pounds lost!
