I decided to start anew and reset my goal ticker again in 2016. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and some heart issues. As of Jan. 2014, they are all under control with medication. Hopefully, by losing more weight, I can eventually cut down on some meds. 2014 ended on a bad note when my dad passed away in November. 2015 was the Year of the Concert for me & my husband. Continuing into 2016 and 2017!

I have kept off 45 lbs. and am happy to be under 200 lbs. Thanks to SparkPeople, I have the tools and the will power to do it! And, most of all, the support!

Member Since: 10/18/2010

Fitness Minutes: 67,701

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and get fit! I want to be able to stop some of the medication if I eat better and improve my health.

I want to live to see grandchildren!

My Program:
I will exercise 5 times per week and try to fit in little "mini sessions" whenever I can. I am committing to at least 25 minutes a day. NO computer time until the exercise is done!

I will not give in to emotional eating as I have done so many times in the past.

I will NOT eat past 9 PM.

I will plan my meals and track every little bite! If I ate it, I have to own up to it!

Personal Information:
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart for 39 years. We have 2 adult sons.

I have lived on Long Island (NY) all of my life.

I hope to move to VA or NC when I retire. Or maybe CA near our older son.

Other Information:
I love reading Stephen King novels. Own most of them!

I enjoy sitting outside on my deck and walking by the lake in the preserve nearby. Watch Yankee baseball and like hockey too.

I like listening to a variety of music - I especially love The Cure, Usher, Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, Steely Dan, Mary J. Blige, Elton John and I'm a huge John Lennon fan too.

    Not a big fan of shopping, either. It's usually a struggle finding things I like that fit well.

    That's great, Debb! How nice it will be for you to be close to family. Are you going to northern or southern CA? I used to live in the SF Bay Area, but it was years ago.

    Loving retirement, especially now that the move is over. I'm taking my time on the home search, because I only want to do this once. I've been watching all of the listings, but nothing so far has appealed. Something will come up at some point.

    Yes, things are going pretty well so far. All unpacked and I'm concentrating on getting all of the paperwork involved with moving under control (address changes, registrations, etc). How is your reorganizing going? Are you doing for a particular reason, or just to get a handle on things?
