I'm 46 years old. My weight has yo-yo'd since I was a teenager. I'm at my heaviest ever right now and need to get my weight down and keep it down.

I work full time as an office manager, which really means I sit at a computer eight hours a day, five days a week.

I have been married for more than 25 years. I have two sons and a granddaughter.

I have spent my whole life in northern NY - I love life here and wouldn't trade it for anywhere else.

I also love writing. I've had several short stories published and hope to have a novel on the shelves someday.

Fitness Minutes: 21,231

My Goals:
Long term, my goal is to lose about 80 pounds. It will most likely end up 85- Which would put me at a 'healthy' BMI - but I'll see when I get there.

I love the idea of a reward for meeting goals along the way, but I tend to pretty much buy myself what I want when I want it, and I'm not a person who wants much.

But I'm going to give this a try. Since I've already lost more than 25 pounds (which includes losing more than 10% of my pre SP weight - I'll have to start with higher goals)

Lose 42.5 pounds (Weigh 172.5 - Half way to goal weight): $50 to spend at Herrschners.com

Lose 57 pounds (weigh 158 - this will bring my BMI from obese to simply overweight): A day (or overnight) trip antique shopping

Lose 70 pounds (weigh 145 - arbitrary number) - 5 pair of quirky socks - oh, how I love my socks!

Lose 85 pounds (weigh 130) Goal!!! Buy or knit a poncho - I don't know why I want a poncho, but I refuse to have one until I'm thinner.


My Program:
Moving more
Tracking what I eat
Choosing healthier foods

Personal Information:
I'm from Northern NY (Lewis County). I've been married for 27 years, have two sons, and a granddaughter.

I work as an office manager at LandVest, Inc.

Other Information:
I love to knit, write, and read. I've had several short stories published and hope to have a novel published some day.

Thank you for the SP goodie and all your encouragement. It's been a bumpy road but I'm not giving up, only working harder.

Thank you for the Easter greetings, Amy! Happy Easter to you as well!
I hope things are going well for you back here on SP. Sometimes it is hard to get back into the frame of mind and takes a little time to re adjust. Wishing you success in all ways. I really am glad that you have returned and am looking forwards to reading your blogs and comments, once again hugs
