Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Weight loss through lowering stress levels, sharing with friends and group support. I don't need fast weight loss, just consistent. I would like to lose 60 pounds - not an easy task for me because of some health issues but I don't give up easily!


My Program:
I am watching my calories by eating only "healthy" foods in accordance with my doctor's recommendations and trying to get more exercise. I think I own about every exercise DVD and Wii program out there and also recently bought an activity tracker. I'm trying to walk a lot more as my main form of exercise. For me the secret is audiobooks - I only listen when I exercise so I'm motivated because I want to hear more of the story.



Personal Information:
I was widowed in 1999 and remarried in 2002. I spent the next 5 years teaching High School biology in a very small school 67 miles from home until I retired in 2008. We recently moved to Grants Pass, Oregon, a difficult move because my husband had lived in our other house for over 40 years. Now we're looking forward to our new life in our new home.


Other Information:
I love fantasy and magic, the ideas anyway. I'm a big Harry Potter fan and fantasy book reader. I love to read, I own a lot of audio books and like to listen to them when I walk. I got interested in YA books while teaching high school and continued reading them after retirement. I also try to keep my mind active by playing RPG computer games.

    SQUEE emoticon This is such a great accomplishment, Carolyn!! You can 'do' whatever you set your mind to, and this is the PROOF!! If you've got a few pounds to go, you'll get 'er DONE, I have no doubt about it, but this is EXCELLENT news. It's been a long haul for you after your back post-therapy, and another long haul 'conditioning' yourself in the therapy pool for the upcoming hip replacement, but now...yer' just about GOOD TA GO, girlfriend, so hold that head up high. You are a WINNER!! ::hugs:: Thank you for the update and I know we're (your/our Tribe) is NOT forgotten. We're gonna have a spectacular 2020, sweetie!!
