Hi, I'm Lori and I'm 33 years old. I have been married for 4 years this Sept. I am trying to lose about 30 lbs to get ready to try to have a baby. I would like to be as healthy as possible to try to ensure a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and baby!

Update 12/17: I am now 34 years old and have reached my "winter" goal. My plan is to maintain until about February (unless pregnant) and then resume losing the last 15-20 pounds.

Update 03/16: Getting back on track and trying to lose about another 10-15 pounds for summer.

Member Since: 2/4/2004

Fitness Minutes: 5,847

My Goals:
I want to start a whole new lifestyle of eating good, but healthy foods. I'm trying to learn that I can do almost anything in moderation. I am not in any rush to lose the weight. I was thinking of making small goals for myself, losing 10-15 lbs at a time.

My Program:
I am exercising 5 times a week, just moderate exercise, not killing myself with high impact workouts daily. I was thinking of taking small "breaks" between losing weight. I'll take 1-2 weeks off, not splurging, but eating sensibly, not trying to lose weight. Let my metabolism jump start itself, so hopefully not to plateau.

Personal Information:
My name is Lori. I'm from Chicago, but I currently live with my husband in Salisbury, Maryland (Maryland's Eastern Shore). We were married on Sept. 25 2004. We have 2 cats (Priscilla and Dolce) but no children yet...once I have learned to care for myself, I'll venture on in to caring for another.

Other Information:
I love reading and spending time with my family, when I can. I love to travel and try new things and foods. I absolutely refuse to got fat-free or sugar-free. My goal is to eat whole natural foods. Nothing too processed or changed by chemicals. I really like to be able to say the names of the contents of my food.

    Hi Lori: Welcome to the 'Horror Lovers' team. I think from what you've written on your spark page that you have the right idea about how best to approach your weight loss and the best way to do it. I'm with you on the 'low fat/fat free/sugar free' foods. I've never enjoyed them and usually can't afford anything 'specialty'. Just natural foods, unprocessed and you can't go wrong. All the best and be sure to check out the 'Movie Reviews' in the Horror team, that will help you find the kinds of movies you enjoy. Laura
