Our friends surprised us by decorating our car with "just married" and presenting us with flowers

I'm on the left. Priscilla and I officially married in Massachusetts this summer though we've been together years.


Best Wishes

My name's Judy and I am ready to lose weight. I have about 75 pounds to lose. I went to a lapband seminar but
(a) I don't want to spend 15,000
(b) I don't want to eat the way I would have to with lapband for the rest of my life.
My partner and I are simply changing our habits. We are using Sparkpeople to track our calories and we are eating smaller portions and healthier food. The biggest challenge I have is my exercise aversion. I haven't found any kind of activity I like yet. The weather here is in the 100 degree range every day so we don't walk like we should. I recently joined 24 hour fitness and paid for a trainer there. I still don't like it but I do go. My neighbor is also a member so we sometimes go together.

Member Since: 8/4/2009

Fitness Minutes: 618

My Goals:
Lose 75 lbs by august 2010.
Be able to shop in the regular clothes departments instead of plus size
track food eaten daily
go to gym 3 times a week

My Program:
Using sparkpeople to track calories. Eating healthier food and smaller portions. This is a permanent change. Not a tempory change.

Personal Information:

We have two dogs, Rusty and Benny and two cats, Mya and Eon.
We are godparents to Adira who was born in Dec. 2008. It's such fun to see her blossom.

I love bargain hunting at thrift stores and garage sales.

Other Information:
I taught middle school for 17 years. I decided I really didn't want to do that anymore and started working at a veterinary hospital as a receptionist. I absolutely loved that. Unfortunatly, we moved and now I am substitute teaching.

    Thank you ... I workout 5-6 days a week. I burn 6000 a week. I use a heart rate monitor to calculate the calories burned. I love working out ... it makes me feel good about myself.

    Thank you for the comments on my Spark Page. We are expecting snow here tomorrow. I am hoping to catch the bus and go to the Y for a walk. I haven't been able to take a good aerobic walk in a few days because of sciatica and heel spur problems but I am feeling better and want to get back to walking. Hope you all have a great weekend camping. emoticon
