* Moving more. Even if it is jogging in place!
* Getting my blood pressure down.
* Keep at it every day!

Personal Information:
I am a Christian and a recent widow. I have 3 children, 4 grandchildren, 4 step grandchildren.
I retired May 23, 2014.
My husband died 12/2018. He is pain free. Dancing and worshiping Jesus!
I miss him but life goes on. I continue to go to church and have gone on a few dates.
I try to keep busy. I am not afraid but once in a while I do get lonely.

Other Information:
I love to make paper beads, an avid reader, work on all kinds of puzzles, play on my computer, and spend time with my children, grandchildren! About twice a month I play games with some friends.
Not quite completely retired, right I am an aide in a 3rd/4th classroom who have to practice social distancing and therefore use two classrooms. I monitor one room while the teacher teaches in the other. Then we trade places.
I have some trouble with my left eye and have to have injections once a month to help with my vision. It is getting better slowly.

    Success is very similar to driving. You'll never reach your destination if your main focus is on what's behind you. - Johnnie Ivery

    Weight loss is like driving: If you ever veer off the road, just make a U-Turn and head back in the right direction.

    emoticon and emoticon to the Starfish emoticon 5% Challenge team! I'm ready to start and have already lost £2! Several of us have been adding one another as friends because a team with friends is key to success!

    I added you And please feel free to add me as well! .. emoticon One thing i am doing to ensure Success--is looking for any 'trigger foods' that could slow my progress and getting rid of them. I believe if each one gives their best, we can be proud and have good results to show for our commitment! (Also please visit the chat thread as that is where we connect the best and get to know one another) ..2B.... .
