My name is Karen, I'm 66 years old, and I'm DONE being the fat girl! I started my Spark journey in Oct. 2010 at 230 lbs and have lost 80 lbs down to 150. My ultimate goal is 135-140.

Starting Jun 25th, I am participating in the Summer 2016 5% Challenge as a member of the Casual Travelers team! My goal is to lose 7 lbs over the 8 weeks.

Dieting doesn't work, but eating healthy foods and moving a little more does, so that is my plan. I am so thankful for SP and those here who share this journey to health and fitness! Welcome to my page - please leave a note to let me know you were here.

Member Since: 10/21/2010

Fitness Minutes: 73,200

My Goals:
Lose 3 or 4 lbs per month till I reach my ideal weight.

A permanent lifestyle change with more fruits and veggies, more activity, less junk food. Moderation NOT deprivation!

My Program:
1000 to 1300 calories a day, walk outdoors or on the treadmill at least 5 days a week.

I'm a FitBit user. It motivates me to keep moving and reach my step goal of 7,000 steps a day.
August 23rd, 2014 - I'm so thrilled to be today's SP Featured Motivator! Thanks, SP!!
June 3, 2012 - Wow! I've been named a SparkPeople Motivator!! What a thrill!

On 12/17/10, I was DGOTD!! WooHoo!

Personal Information:
I live in western NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and a 2-year-old domestic shorthair housecat named St. Pat. :) I'm blessed with a husband of 47 years who loves me no matter what. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 12-year-old daughter.

I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.

Other Information:
A favorite pastime is crocheting. It's relaxing and helps me to keep my mind off food. Love to do grown-up dot-to-dot books.

I enjoy country music, especially the older music, and also southern gospel music.

I love to read, and am addicted to my Kindle Fire. My reading interests include a variety of fiction genres depending on my mood, non-fiction historical books, and inspirational. I belong to a local book club that meets monthly at our town library.

    Talking about touchie keyboard [my Goodie message] clicked off and I panicked ..figured out I could get the window back up but forgot to ask [how are you getting your focus back]? Have you got any tips? I have exercised this week [treadmill and wii exercises]; however, I am thinking there's something wrong with the remotes as they gave me less than 10 minutes of playing time yesterday. I wanted to mix things up and not get stuck doing only the treadmill... emoticon wii emoticon emoticon tee-hee-hee --- emoticon

    Thank you so much for dropping by my page and leaving such a sweet, positive comment… I did not even know I was named motivator of the day, LOL! (It must've been because I posted a great -67 lb weight-loss since March 9, 2016.)
