Hi
I am Angie! I am so excited to be using this website!! I have lost 94 pounds and have decided to try to maintain while I get used to some new medication I was put on recently. I had a tough summer in 2013, but I am back on my way to a healthy lifestyle. Welcome to my journey.

2012 was a year were I maintained my weight, but didn't exercise much. Starting in November I took the AIM-HI (Americans in Motion-Health Intervention) class at a local clinic. It was the jump start I needed for 2013!! It focuses on Nutrition, emotions and activities. What a great opportunity!!

2013 started off better than 2012 ended. I started and finished the Shape Up Montana Program. I was on a team doing the activity program. I walked over 200 miles from February 1st through May 1st. Wow! I never thought I could do that! I love to walk, but wasn't able to do much of it after my knee surgery. Well, on February 1st I started doing 10 minutes a day. Then I would go for 15 and so on. I can walk for 30 minutes without stopping. I currently can walk a mile in 19 minutes. I am trying to get that down to a 15 minute mile, so I can walk 2 miles in 30 minutes.

Update: October 11, 2013
I had a really hard summer. I spent most of it in the hospital. My mental illness really got the best of me. I am getting on the right track now and am glad to be back on SP. I really missed the site and all my friends on here. I am not up to walking yet, but I am working on my eating for now. Trying to track my food is hard after not doing it for over 3 months. And of course not eating very healthy! I am still in Onederland. I plan to stay there and eventually go lower than my 187 pounds as of today.

Update: It is Black Friday. You won't catch me shopping today! Most of my shopping is done. Now the mailing begins! I am doing well with my weight. I must not have eaten too much yesterday and I got enough sleep, which helps with weight loss. Holidays are hard for me with not much family in town. Most are 2 to 8 hours away. Miss my Mom and Dad. They are no longer with us. Loving having a 4x4 vehicle in this weather and with the roads as they are here in Billings, Montana. I am still excited to be on Spark People. Hoping to get down to Onederland again in 2016. Maybe even lose more than last time. I was down to 199 and I would like to lose more this time. I didn't gain back all my weight that I had lost. My goal is to keep off the weight I lose this time and maintain. I need to exercise more and eat better. I love junk food. Thanks for reading about my journey!! Angie

My Goals:
My new goal is to walk a mile in 15 minutes. Another goal is to use my resistance bands regularly for strength training and make sure I stretch each day. The walking will help with my bone density, which I really need.

My Program:
I finished the Shape Up Montana program. I walked 200 miles from February 1st to May 1st! I never thought I could walk so much again. I continue to surprise myself with continued distance and weight loss!

Personal Information:
I am a 50 year old thriver!! I have lived through some terrible bouts of depression and am here to say...you can do it too!! I am one of 7 children. My parents are no longer here on earth, but watch over me from Heaven. I have so many guardian angels in Heaven!! I love life! My friends and family are part of my support system! I get together or talk to them as much as I can! Thanks also to all my Spark Friends! You are the best!!

Other Information:
I love to read, watch movies, scrapbook, make cards, visit with my family and friends. I am so thankful to have so many wonderful Spark Friends!! You are great!

Today was the 40th running of Bloomsday the 12 though the city. Sunny and warm I was in the
Blue group we started at 9 ;55 off I went I did good hit the area known as cemetery hill 1hour 15 minutes felt I was doing great. Middle if the big hill toe cramps hit Glad took my leg cramp pills with me. I slowed way down and it took me 3 hours 15 min. to finish but I have my shirt. I will post a picture this week. But wanted to let my family know I am home and had a nap bath checking in and now off to get dinner going. thanks I heard each of you cheering me to the finish at one point I was thinking I can’t finish but what good Sparker gives up!

Explain the situation. Can't hurt to try. My daily login streak is one of my main motivators.

"It starts with a dream, add faith,
and it becomes a belief.
add action, and it becomes part of life.
Add perseverance and it becomes a goal in sight.
Add patience and time and it ends with a dream come true."

Have a great Thursday
