My name is Dawn, but in my family I was called Sissy. Because all the "Sissy" names I wanted were already taken, I ended up admitting to my date of birth in my name. Ah well, age comes to us all!

Member Since: 1/4/2010

Fitness Minutes: 234,780

My Goals:
To lose 50 lbs, and be healthier because of regular exercise.


My Program:
Love the 5%:Challenges. Minimum Exercise of some sort for 15 minutes each day and go to the pool at least twice a week.



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 10 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!
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 well as enjoy different types of crafts.
In 2018 we made the major decision to sell our large monastery and move into something smaller for the 5 of us. We literally moved across the street. But the space is about 1/3 of


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!

    “Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way.

    Take the time, even when it’s hard, especially when you don’t feel like it, to stop and look back to see how far you have come. Betsy Chasse
