Being 40 something has lead me to re-evaluate many things in my life and lead me to a self improvement plan. I find the Sparkpages so helpful as it allows me to work on my weight loss goals along with other personal goals to assist me in becoming the best person I can be. I look forward to 2007 as I continue on my journey of growth and self improvement.

March 2009 - I am still continuing on this jouney of self improvement I feel that it never ends. I am enjoying it because it causes me to constantly evaluate where I am and challenge myself. As I am approaching retirement in 4 years I feel that i still have alot to offer and an seriously considering pursuing administration in my field of teaching. There is always something new to learn.
January 2012 - I am still here and haven't met my physical weight goal but this site serves so many purposes for me. It helps me to be the best person I can be by allowing me to work on so many aspects of myself other than just my weight loss. I will keep being a member of this site even when I do reach my weight goal. Hopefully that will happen this year.

My Goals:
Obviously one of my goals is to lose weight to help improve my health. Also I would like to become a more positive person overall.

My Program:
I have been working on improving my eating habits over the past year. Yes, there have been set-backs but I am back on the right track. I also have been doing alot of spiritual reading and trying to improve my relationship with God. My husband and I are working together on different Church ministries to try to help people. Thing brings much satisfaction to both of us. I have also been following the LIGHT WEIGH at church and I find it helpful to do my journaling on this site.

Personal Information:
I am from the Niagara Region in Ontario, Canada. Have 2 beautiful daughters and a terrific husband. My eldest daughter is in her fourth year ata university and my youngest is in her first year. Will be turning 53 in March and I still fill fabulous and 50. the 50s have been the best decade yet. I finally feel that I have found myself.

Other Information:
My husband and I are taking ballroom dancing and we are thoroughly enjoying it. It is good exercise and that is how I get my cardio in. It is fun because I don't do it by myself. My all time favourite move is Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. Someday I hope to go to Africa.

    Thank you for commenting on my "Niagara Falls" blog. I love to visit the Falls. And I was in Ontario back in 1986; seems like such a long time ago. I enjoyed seeing Ontario and then we crossed the lake on a large ferry boat. It was a Canadian ferry, so well managed and orderly. I was really impressed with how they handled getting the vehicles on and off the ferry.

    Have a great weekend!

    A bodily disease, which we look upon as whole and entire within itself, may, after all, be but a symptom of some ailment in the spiritual past
