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.
