What can I say about myself…I am an average woman in my (gulp!) mid forties. In my earlier 40’s I was sleep walking through a life of working 50 + hours a week at a stressful (more importantly, disheartening) job, a scale diving into obesity, and an absolute feeling of powerlessness. I didn’t experience anything as dramatic as a nervous breakdown; however, I did “wake up”.
Today I am officially (much to my husband’s dismay) retired. I have lost over 30 lbs, competed in 3 triathlons, raced in one 5K, and am enjoying learning who I want to be for the next half of my life.
I welcome your dialog and look forward to sharing my wanderings.
