Carey and Colette Silver-Creek Falls Oregon 08/06
My wonderful husband Carey, in Depot Bay Oregon
I've been on Sparks since April 06. I've lost 44 pounds and have 20 more to go. Onward and forward, one moment at a time, in Him!
I've made up my mind that I'm going to succeed. There are no excuses, either I"m going to do it, or I'm not!!! On 11/27/07 I decided I AM going to do it. Again, no more excuses!!!
I would like to be healthy, have more energy, and continue to get my Cholesterol down. My desire is to have a healthy life-style, and achieve my goal weight. It's happening! :)
I am eating real food and counting my calories through Sparks, I'm also tracking my exercise.
It's amazing how the little things I eat add up. I was shocked to see that I wasn't getting hardly any nutritional value in my day.
I also joined Curves, started playing Tennis, try to go to the community pool with my sister a couple times a week and walk in the evenings.
I talk on the phone with friends, about what they are doing in SparkPeople and stay intouch online at Sparks. It helps me so much when others are positive and meeting their goals.
My name is Colette, I live in Oregon.

Great to hear from you! I'm trying a new program, no WW...I'm doing LA Weigh Loss right now and I have lost 17 pounds in 6 weeks. I know the weight is comming off pretty quick but it's hard. The focus is non-processed foods, lots of veggies, fruits, meat, and some carbs.
I'm at 200 now so I'm getting excited to say 'Bye Bye 200's"! Getting the weight off is so helpful for me cause I'm able to workout bettter. A couple days ago I was able to jog for 25 minutes without stopping. That's progress for me. I'm glad it's coming off.
Are you doing WW? I know it's hard to not lose but it's a huge accomplishment not to gain! Hang in there!
How'd you like the heat wave last weekend? I really like the rain right now cause I was dripping with sweat last weekend. Hope you have a wonderful day.
