I am a retired teacher--taught 1st graders for 35 years. Am now very involved in volunteer projects, mostly throught my church. I love to travel and cruise. Am married (45 years) and have 1 son and 2 grandsons.

September, 2009
I've decided it's time to start over! I am determined to do better and to be successful!
I do get in regular exercise at Curves but I've not been very good with the diet! BUT, I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to work on life changes especially with my eating habits!

August 2018

Four and a half years since I lost my husband. I still talk to him but know one day I will see him. I have discovered that I’m stronger than I ever thought. I continue to travel and have learned I can do things he always did.





June 2014
My life has changed drastically since losing Chuck in January. I am learning I can do things I never thought I could do--like mowing the lawn! Chuck was the one who loved to work outside and I enjoyed what he planted! This year I took the easy way out--I planted artificial flowers! They bloom all year and I never have to worry about watering them!
October 2014
I'm approaching 9 months of being alone. I don't like it but I'm keeping busy. I have gotten back to Curves and I have lost 25 pounds. I WILL SURVIVE!


Member Since: 11/27/2007

Fitness Minutes: 453,846

My Goals:
My goalsare: 1. to get 40 pounds off in order to first improve my health and so I'll feel better and the bonus of looking better! 2. to improve my eating habits. (I LOVE food ~~ especially what is NOT good for me!)


My Program:
I'm doing good with exercise. Have started doing Curves Smart which is a big help to me
Now I really need to work on the food!

    It’s Monday and the beginning,
    Of the week that lies ahead,
    Just keep moving step by step and grinning,.
    By keeping positive thoughts in your head,

    Things change, and our bodies and emotions change. They can be small changes, or they can be BIG changes. But one thing is for sure, they are usually unexpected, while intended to help us move forward in some way. They help to shape who were are, and build our very foundation of our constitution - who we are - and our ability to face what is yet to come.

    “We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

    "Don't be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That's only the initial impression. The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself."
    ~ Olga Korbut

    Set your sights today on one thing in your life that needs to change. Use mindfulness to help you stay in the moment, and help you take that first step and move forward this week to make it over the hurdle.

    Wishing you a positive and productive week.

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ reading this message right now `*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I used to have a comfort zone where I felt safe and couldn’t fail,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* Locked in my daily routine without any worry or fear,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    *•.¸ `*•.¸♥* In those imaginary four walls I was alone; it was as if I was in jail.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I dared not try any new things that were new or unclear.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I longed so much to do some things I’d never tried before,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* To venture out, try something new, of which I had no doubt.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    *•.¸ `*•.¸♥* But I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* When boredom got the best of me, I knew I had to figure it out.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I told myself it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I claimed to be so busy with many things inside my comfort zone,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I said I didn’t care for spontaneity, noise, crowds, and such.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* But deep inside I longed to try something new and different from what I’ve known.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸

    “Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, “This is the real me,” and when you have found that attitude, follow it.” ~ William James
