Autumn is a time of magic,
Bursting colors from hardy trees,
All of nature adorned in a carpet of hues,
A yearly transformation before winter's freeze.

Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

My Goals:
Weight loss through lowering stress levels, sharing with friends and group support. I don't need fast weight loss, just consistent. I would like to lose 60 pounds - not an easy task for me because of some health issues but I don't give up easily!


My Program:
I am watching my calories by eating only "healthy" foods in accordance with my doctor's recommendations and trying to get more exercise. I think I own about every exercise DVD and Wii program out there and also recently bought an activity tracker. I'm trying to walk a lot more as my main form of exercise. For me the secret is audiobooks - I only listen when I exercise so I'm motivated because I want to hear more of the story.



Personal Information:
I was widowed in 1999 and remarried in 2002. I spent the next 5 years teaching High School biology in a very small school 67 miles from home until I retired in 2008. We recently moved to Grants Pass, Oregon, a difficult move because my husband had lived in our other house for over 40 years. Now we're looking forward to our new life in our new home.


Other Information:
I love fantasy and magic, the ideas anyway. I'm a big Harry Potter fan and fantasy book reader. I love to read, I own a lot of audio books and like to listen to them when I walk. I got interested in YA books while teaching high school and continued reading them after retirement. I also try to keep my mind active by playing RPG computer games.
