Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 9+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

Fitness Minutes: 78,379

My Goals:
1. Better nutrition: More veggies, more fruit, more whole foods, more water. It continues to be a challenge.

2. Improving my strength, endurance, and flexibility with continued regular workouts.

3. Achieving balance: Mind, body, and soul.

My Program:
1. Nutrition:
Focus will be on HYDRATION.
I'm terrible with water. Goal is 48 oz. a day. That's 6 cups. Even I should be able to do this.

2. Fitness:
Love to hike. You'll find me on the trail somewhere almost every weekend.

My favorite workout during the week is Zumba and/or kickboxing.

I also enjoy yoga to balance it all out.

3. Balance:
Aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

    Thank you for stopping by my birthday blog and sharing how you celebrate. I normally do the dinner thing too. I am sure I will figure it out!

    Yes for now until I get a handle on 'life' again - I think I'm better off to leave alcohol aside...

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I am impressed with your progress.You are one of those people who set a goal and head straight as an arrow to the mark. Unfortunately it's taking me a long time to learn to maintain what I achieve. I started here in 2006, and am now above my starting weight.Not a star poster child for Spark! I have learned so much here. I am in a strong place now and feel I can do this.
    I like one of the quotes on your page here. I have often encouraged others with the knowledge that we have a few second between the desire to do something off plan and the act. There is time to say NO if we really want to. Your quote summed it up well.
