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.

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 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

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!
