Hello! Here I go again, but THIS time I mean it!!

My name is Suzy - I live in the Natomas area with a small dog I found on the street in January and named Tiuy. Note to self: never give a stray a name you might not want to live with long term, on the basis that the owners will be found any day.

As much as I love where I live, I am sorry to say I have gained 5 pounds per year the 7 years I have lived here, as I no longer walk a lot of places, and yet I still enjoy my glass or three of wine in the evenings! Now 5 pounds doesn't sound bad, but 5X7 sure adds up...and I seem to be having a heck of a time dropping any of them at all. I've South Beached (dropped 8 pounds, gained 'em all back plus 5); Weight Watchered (dropped 10 pounds, gained 'em all back plus 5) see the pattern.

I actually enjoy a lot of exercise options but seem to have gotten myself into a nasty habit of working most every waking moment, then being too tired when I finally wander home. Nonsense of course!

But there we are.

My Goals:
Lose 5 pounds. And then do it again a bunch of times. The real goal is 130 but don't tell the turtle, because he will be too intimidated.

My Program:
Program under construction. My turtle is moving the wrong direction (started Spark at 156 lbs) and it is time for a new program. Stay tuned.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Suzy, thanks for the encouragement. I know I'm not always the most active sparkfriend, it's nice to come "home". And I looked a the fitbit and if it was in our budget I would be interested in getting one...
