I weigh more than I ever have in my entire life. My blood pressure is high. My cholesterol is nearing the point at which I would need to take medication. There are plenty of reasons to explain how this happened, but the truth is that I made choices every step of the way.

My Goals:
I will make positive changes so that I feel vibrantly healthy in body, mind, and spirit.

My Program:
I will meditate each day to accept positive changes and to remain peaceful and calm about the challenges I may face.

I will drink at least 8 cups of water each day to help my body function in its purest state.

I will honor myself by eating a balanced diet of healthy, pure food.

I will embrace each effort I make to move each day.

I will reach my recommended goal weight by August, 2017.

Personal Information:
I am happy to be 58 years old now. Born in 1957- the year of Sputnik! Somehow I feel it is a time of new beginnings for me.

I have lived all of my life in California- grew up in Manhattan Beach, went to high school in Irvine, graduated from the University of California at Davis, and have lived in Fresno since 1979.

I am married to an Italian-American, so I know what the phrase "Testa dura" really means.

I have one adult step-son who has an autistic condition known as Pervasive Developmental Disorder.

I retired after twenty-seven years as a middle school teacher, and enjoy finally being free to use the restroom any time I need to.

My husband and I have an antiques and collectibles business. We specialize in vintage and collectible Disneyana at professional shows. We also feature an eclectic selection of other antiques and collectibles at our outdoor shows and online venues.

Other Information:
I love all kinds of music and art.

I have traveled to some beautiful places in my life and had many wonderful adventures.

I enjoy silent and early films of Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy, W.C. Fields, Mae West, Ma and Pa Kettle, and many others.

I use my skills as a researcher to do family genealogy and indexing.

I am a very skilled writer and eloquent speaker.

For someone who is from the era of room-sized computers developed by men in horn-rimmed glasses with white shirts and skinny black ties, I'm pretty handy with my MacBook Pro.

I am a perfectionist and also tend to be a procrastinator.

I have a sense of humor and I'm smart.
