My name is Dawn, but in my family usually called me Sissy. Because all the "Sissy" names I wanted were already taken, I ended up admitting holto my date of birth in my name. But I don’t really mind people knowing how old I am...so not a problem!

Member Since: 1/4/2010

Fitness Minutes: 300,980

My Goals:
To lose 50 lbs, and be healthier because of regular exercise and change in diet. 2020 started to consciously eat more whole plant based food, with limited dairy and meat. I like to think of it as trying to be healthy and yet flexible as needed. It has worked well during the Covid 19 crisis for me.


My Program:
Love the 5%:Challenges. Minimum Exercise of some sort for 15 minutes each day and Usually go to the pool for water walking 3 times a week. Note....pool closed since March due to Covid 19.



Personal Information:
I am originally from the US, currently living in Canada on the west coast. I am Franciscan Poor Clare Sister. I had a left knee replacement 12 years ago and have put the replacement for the other knee on hold. These metal parts DO NOT make me function (or look) like the old Bionic Woman! At this point the exercise I can do, and mobility I have is limited. I am limited to walking, riding a bike and swimming, so I do have options. I had open heart surgery in my 20s, and now At 70 have some residual damage showing, so have had both a cardioversion, and three years later a cardiac ablation. So good so far. But sodium really does me in! In 2020 I was enrolled in a multi approach program by my cardiologist and following that we are trying to do more whole plant based eating. It am finding it makes a real difference in my body which is healthier for me.
I was an Air Traffic Controller in the US Navy until 1981 when I joined the Poor Clares. I am an avid reader, love to cook and bake, as wel


Other Information:
Lost 35 lbs the first year I joined, but have put it back on. And am working to try and get it back off!

    Remember:

    “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~Mark Victor Hansen
