Hi, I'm Sally. I live in sunny southern California, LA to be exact. I am a first grade teacher and find so much JOY in my work and family. I have three grown lovely daughters, a pomeranian and a fat cat! I have been losing about two pounds a month since reading The Spark and finding sparkpeople. I love this site and all of the great resources. Slow but steady seems to be my M.O. Wish I could up the loss to a pound a week but I will take what I can get. At least the scale is moving in the right direction! Thank you everyone for all of your sharing, support and encouragement.
update~ lost 10 lbs in July and hope to do the same during August!
update 1/1/12- I've been maintaining my goal weight for the past 2 months! Planning on staying here and continuing on this journey with you guys!

    Naptime? Absolutely! I just got back from the hospital again, 1.5 hours this time. It's so MIL is in with a 16 yr. old druggie who's coming down from a really bad experience. Good thing is that for every F-word that the girl screams, my MIL shoots her the finger and gives it right back! Oh, my goodness, I hope she can go back to assisted living really soon. I"m now in my jammies with a glass of wine. Calgon, take me away.....

    Hi Sally--Thanks for your comment on my bike riding photo. I will admit I haven't gotten the bike out yet this summer. I did love it last year but I was a little shaky on it after not riding for so many years, and we live on a gravel road. I have to ride for .6 miles before I hit pavement and it's not easy for me.

    I plan to retire in January and I told hubby the other day that I'm going to buy a new Girl's bike with my last vacation check! It will be my retirement gift to myself! I struggle getting on and off this old bike that belonged to my dad. It's the one he went hundreds of miles on and it is obviously a good old bike, but it's a BOY's bike and with my bad knees and hips, it's hard for me to get my leg up over that bar. So I'm going to treat myself to a bike made for a GIRL!
