I will be 58 in August. I retired from teaching high school in 2008 and then, because of need in the small town area in Northern California where I live, I returned to teaching for the last year. I just "re-retired", hopefully this time for good. It's not a good time to be a teacher in California. I joined Spark People shortly after retiring in 2008, when I returned to teaching again I found that my motivation and enthusiasm for weight loss took a back seat to lesson plans and classroom management. Now that I'm retired again I hope to light the spark again and this time hopefully have more success. I bought some hand weights and exercise videos and am going to do my best but I would like to find someone to e-mail too. Since retiring I really don't know what I'm going to do with my time yet. I have a wonderful supportive husband but would like some woman "weight loss buddies" too.

Member Since: 6/18/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,223

My Goals:
Slow but steady weight loss is fine with me. My main goal is not only to lose but to keep it off.


My Program:
I've been tracking everything I eat - quite an eye-opener! Exercise is my biggest challenge. I've been trying to walk my dogs 1-2 miles a day and I have a low-impact fitness video I like, it's hard to get motivated though.



Personal Information:
I live in a small town in Northern California. Going shopping at a mall is a treat because the closest one is 90 miles away :)


Other Information:
I had my thyroid removed in 2001. Since then I've gained about 44 pounds. I feel like my metabolism now is working against me and my weight loss goals, I'm really tired of feeling like I do about myself and seriously want to succeed.
