I've had a long weight loss story. Always either on a diet or going on a eating streak or recovering from one. I'm sure I've lost the same 100 lbs several times in my journey. I'm so done with that. I want off this treadmill. If I can make a life change, wouldn't that be heaven?

Member Since: 6/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 35,552

My Goals:
To lose this weight once and for all. To become healthy and regain some mobility, connect with like minded friends, get out and get moving so I can enjoy God's beautiful Pacific Northwest. I tried to walk a Half Marathon but my feet gave out, so I am enjoying the occasional 10K on the weekends.

My Program:
Since January 09 I've lost 124 lbs. and going for another 16 by Dec 2010.
I have the Bodybugg program for monitoring my calorie burn and it has been a GIFT. Finally I can see what my results are without the bathroom scale.
I have been doing the at home excercise; Video tapes, Dance, Rebounder, Resistance Bands, Walking & Biking.

Now over 1 year later, I'm trying to constantly reach out and challange myself to keep going. I've met my 1 st goal of 180 lbs.Now I've got my sights set on 155. I work out at 24hr Fitness 3 days a week, doing Zumba & water Aerobics.

Personal Information:
I've lived in Portland Oregon most of my life. I own a thrift shop and enjoy most aspects of running my own show. The down side is I have no life other than work & church. So I've found myself friendless more times than I want to think. I pull back and food and inactivity became my lifestyle and gained a ton of weight. I need to change that. You can contact me at

Other Information:
I'm pretty bad at getting to know people, But I really want to have busy, happy friends that I could go play with. I love to kayak, go to movies and go on short travel excursions.

    Thanks for your encouragement. It really helps. I have a tough week coming up, and today I'm very tired after taking care of a 1- and 3-year old all day. Tomorrow will dawn brighter, I'm sure. And it's my weigh-in day, so I think I might like what I see. Let's hope.
