In my 61st year and loving it! Health is just as important as weight to me. I am doing Intermittent Fasting (IF) mostly 16/8, eating strict keto. Practicing mindfulness and meditation has changed my life.

Member Since: 6/12/2009

My Goals:
To lose about 25 more pounds - to travel everywhere one day.

My Program:
I like being active outdoors - walking, mainly. Nature is my significant other. :) I also love regularly working out at home to Youtube channels like HasFit. I LOVE their workouts. Also, pilates, personalized physical therapy videos, and guided meditations.

Personal Information:
I'm a NATURE LOVER and a true southern gothic introvert weirdo, who happens to be a mother of two young adults. I am a Manager, an Activist, a Designer, a Photographer, a Humorist, a Feminist, a Progressive, an Artist, a Environmentalist, a Writer, a Volunteer, and an Entrepreneur.

Other Information:
Movies: Blackkklansman, Black Panther, Northern Soul, A Hard Day's Night, Room With A View, The Philadelphia Story, The Graduate, Cocteau's Beauty and The Beast, Sullivan's Travels, Cold Mountain, Manon of the Spring, The Family Stone. Activist documentaries like Cowspiracy, Earthlings, all Michael Moore films, etc. I also love TCM. I am glued to Netflix mostly; Schitt's Creek, Call The Midwife, Orange Is The New Black, and The Get Down have been favorites. Handmaid's Tale, Insecure, Poldark. I loved The Apology about the enslaved women during Japanese war - so called "comfort women." I also love Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan in Catastrophe, the comedy series on Amazon about married life in London.

Music: from old school Motown and Beatles, The Marvelettes to the B-52s, Roxy Music to Cat Power, Aretha Franklin to Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell to George Jones, Mahavishnu Orchestra to Elvis Costello, David Bowie to Shangri-Las, Stevie Wonder to many others.

    Hi! Great to hear from you...and yes, you did hear me mention I enjoyed checking your page out just now---awesome pictures of you! You were a beautiful young girl, and a beautiful lady now who absolutely does not look 50 yrs old!

    I'm a lifetime member of WW, so I don't have to pay as slong as I'm within 3 pounds of my goal weight. All I have to do is weigh in once a month. After about 3 yrs of not going to the meetings at all I recently started back up again. I had to pay my first meeting fee of $12, but since I'm at goal I don't have to pay since then. I find the weekly meetings to be very inspirational and a good compliment to SP. I think it's in large part due to the great leader, but also because WW is really an awesome plan for a lifestyle (just like SP)!
