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.

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:

Thank you for reading two of my latest blogs! It's very nice of you, especially the one about the snacks, which is quite long!

I'm sorry to hear about your irritable bowel syndrome. I had that for a while, but not any longer. I seem to have symptoms if I don't exercise for a while. I think it's because having muscles around the abdomen help how the intestines and colon work. Without the muscles, I'm flabby and everything gets messed up from that. Nothing works properly then. Maybe yours will go away after a while. Sometimes you need to watch what you eat with a fruit or vegetable. I ate a banana and chips once, and had a terrible time with bloating. I guess if you eat fatty foods with fruit, the fatty foods get digested first, and the fruit gets left inside of you to ferment and there are all these bubbles. That's something I didn't know, that I wish someone had told me!

My grandma on my mother's side was a Mormon! And so was her husband, my grandpa. But they couldn't go to church because he was in a wheelchair, and the church wouldn't build a ramp for him. I wish they had gone into the nearest big town to go, it was only twenty miles, but they wanted to stay close to home on the Sabbath.

My grandma, I think, had some genetic form of leukemia. That's the only one that can last for so many years that I know of. She wasn't suffering for most of the time that she had it, but I think after a while she was. What scares me is the genetic component. Am I going to get this when I'm older? Hardly anyone ever gets this kind, and there's no treatment for it other than just watching it progress, mostly.

Thank you for reading my gratitude blog! And thank you about liking the profile picture. I do too, but I have to admit that it's not really me. It's Belle from Once Upon A Time, played by Emilie de Ravin. She's my favorite character on the show. I wasn't sure at first, but I'm totally sold now. She's a great actress! But they're all really good. I don't know if you've ever seen that. It comes on on ABC and you can also watch it on Netflix and there should be a few episodes on Hulu. Here's Emilie's profile on IMDB:

I would have more photos of me, but I really don't have a camera.

emoticon for stopping by my blog, Cray Brother! And thank you for the encouraging comments! I don't know how many steps I get in a day, because I haven't been wearing a pedometer. It's cool that you get about 5,000 a day. That's a good number. One time I got up to 10,000, like they recommend, and I was totally exhausted! Wow, I guess you have to work up to that number.
