I am 50 years old and live in Pickering, Ontario, Canada. I have about 60 lbs. to lose and I am determined to do it this time! Stress does awful things to a girl's body and I am going to work hard to get rid of this weight! This has been going on for too long.

Member Since: 4/5/2010

Fitness Minutes: 2,548

My Goals:
My main goal is to feel good about myself in my own skin and to be able to relax and boost my self-esteem. I have arthritis in both knees and losing the weight would be so helpful in easing the pain. I also want to be healthy and not obsess about food anymore.

My Program:
I read The Spark on my holidays in Cape Hatteras, NC and was impressed. So, I am in stage 1 right now. I have time this summer to get started. I also belong to a women's gym and go at least 4 times a week. I start a boxing boot camp tonight. I love to box! I also have a personal trainer there and she is wonderful.

Personal Information:
I am an elementary school teacher and have been teaching for 23 years. I teach grades 7 and 8. There is a ton of stress and we teachers love to eat anything that we can get our hands on! You should see what disappears out of our staff room in record speed! I live in Pickering, Ontario which is east of Toronto. I love it here. I am married and have one son who is 17 and he is the light of my life.

Other Information:
I would appreciate any support that you would care to give me. I have come at this issue from many different angles for most of my life. I am a Weight Watchers "lifer" and we all know that that program just doesn't work in the long run. Anyway, drop me a note!

    Thank you for commenting on my statuses. In regards to the animal called "chubacabra chocolate", if i don't see it I won't eat it. But I love Dollar General & the stuff is everywhere & my DH has bunnies in the closet! So I binge & then get over it.

    Thanks for your kind words Kathy, I too, wish we lived closer. We are really in limbo right now. Steve will be having his biopsy on Tuesday and the meeting with his oncologist the following Monday. We should have a better sense of what is going on then.
    I needed those boxing gloves! Thank You!

    I hope that you had a Merry Christmas! I finally uploaded those pictures I took of you and Deb in Boston during your visit to see Michael Buble and me (haha)! Check out my photo gallery!
    PS - Also, check out those mittens on Steve and Becky (they love them and they are so warm - many thanks)!
    Have a Happy New Year!

    Looking forward to seeing you in 2 weeks. I don't know if the girls will be joining us or not. They both are always so busy. Katie is doing much better now that she is once again single. It was difficult at first, but she is finding that it is in her best interest for now. She was really cutting off her ties at school by being in this relationship and she needs to be more involved in campus life and making new friends. They weren't the perfect match even though it seemed so in the beginning! She changed her major from Athletic Training to Liberal Studies with a minor in Biology. This will give her a better foundation for what she wants to accomplish in grad school. How's you son's search going? I'll talk with you soon!

    Your message brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for those encouraging words. Yes, it is over with Brendan. It was mutual, but never-the-less, devastating. She is still mourning over this loss, but knows this decision was the for the best. My heart goes out to her, but I know that she will recover as time goes on!
