Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 210 in September 2011. I needed to lose 75 pounds. I lost 50 pounds with adding exercising, eating more fruits, vegetables and eating way less fast food.

June 2016 hubby fall and broke his neck, with the stress of him in the hospital and care homes for 7 months I put back on some weight but still wear the same size jeans. Before Spark People I wore size 20, I now wear 10.

I am married to a very supportive man who with his help I think I can do this. I love to cook and he inspires me to make healthy low calorie meals.

I challenge myself to make better choices to become stronger healthier and a better person. I find that pushing myself to be healthier every day is practical. I use steaks to motivate myself and count my calories.

I have learned to love exercising. I walk most every day. I like joining exercise challenges and testing myself to be stronger and healthier

I look forward to learning more things every year to be a good role model to others on this journey.

My Goals:
I wear size 10 jeans and I want to wear size 8.


My Program:
I am doing the Every Other Day Diet by eating 500 calories every other day. I love fresh fruit and raw vegetables. I eat mainly chicken, whole grains and vegetables, with a little cheese.

I exercise by walking almost every where I go. I also am going to an exercise class once a month



Personal Information:
I live in Sacramento Ca with my hubby of 12+ years.

2015-Hubby is also working to lose weight and is helping me stay on track.

2017-after hubby's fall he lost weight while in care homes, he went from 230 to 177 at 6'2". He would only eat a few bites of the meals he was served and also got sick with C-Diff. On coming home, with the help of his VA doctor I got him over C-Diff and he started eating good home cooked meals. He has put back on some weight but is still thin.

    From your quote, I surely hope so!

    I'm glad you're taking the opportunity of being around the house while healing to do very productive things. emoticon Those fast days do have a way! emoticon emoticon

    Yesterday, I went to an 80 y.o. birthday party of one of my mom's sisters. A long way, almost two hours one way and then back. I was happy to be there for her, but it was boring! Glad I went though. The food was not good which, as a matter of fact, was a good thing.

    If we could only master your quote!! emoticon

    Oh, no, I'm so sorry about sciatica. Too painful! Could there be a way to prevent it or not? I can't be still also. It's like a penitence. Once I was injured from the Achilles tendon I did a lot of bouncing and exercises sitting in the big ball. It's good to have one for the purpose of moving without hurting other parts. It's the closest I've found to getting into a pool. I don't know though if it will work for sciatica.

    Sending healing vibes and hugs your way! emoticon
