Since reaching my weight-loss goal in April, 2010, I've been maintaining a healthier weight for myself and keeping myself off of the prescription meds I had required. My ability to adhere to a healthier regimen of nutrition and exercise has been strengthened through my practice of Yoga, DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Theory), and Deep-Breathing Meditation. You can check my blog on this site for updates. :-)

Fitness Minutes: 88,276

My Goals:
Physically, my goal is to return to wearing medium-size clothes again. That means reducing my weight from 225 pounds to about 160 pounds and my waist from 46 inches to 34 inches. Psychologically, I want to persist until I have reached my goal and then maintain this weight-loss through healthier eating habits and regular exercise.

My Program:
After eight months of following Isagenix's weight-loss regimen, I had reached my goals. My maintenance eating regimen includes organic produce, naturally fed meat, poultry, or fish, and lots of water. As a result of teaching yoga at a wellness clinic, I'm consciously reducing the amount of animal protein in my diet and moving toward an Ayurvedic system of nutrition. My exercise program includes strength training, cardio exercise, and yoga. I'm teaching yoga or senior fitness classes six days a week and trying to maintain my own cardio, strength, and yoga regimens along with the teaching.

Personal Information:
I live outside of Pittsburgh. Since I retired from college teaching, I've been developing a second career as a yoga and senior fitness instructor and wellness coach. I'm also working on a certification as a yoga therapist.

Other Information:
Much of the reading I do now is connected with my yoga training and twelve-step recovery. I'm especially taken by the books of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King.
