Daisy Bell's Journey

Hi! I'm a 67 year old woman who wants to stay as healthy as possible so I can continue to enjoy my "Golden Years"! I lost 90 pounds from June 2009 to June 2011 and have been maintaining that weight loss with the help of Spark and my FitBit! I gained 10 pounds after a wonderful once in a lifetime month long trip to Europe in September 2013 and am currently slowly losing those 10 pounds.

My Goals:
I have lost around 90 pounds and had wanted to lose at least 15 more. I have become more active and have drastically reduced my portion size. I am enjoying learning to eat a more healthful "clean" diet. I'm working on my weight loss 5 pounds at a time now that I am getting closer to goal. Recently, I have decided (with my doctor's encouragment) to take a "losing break". I will continue to eat healthfully and to stay active but will try to relax from the pressure of losing the last 10 or 15 pounds. I weigh weekly and will continue that to ensure that I stay in a 5 pound range. I have recently started running and have raced 2 5Ks and one 2 mile Turkey Trot.

My Program:
I am tracking daily and using the fit bit to log my activity. I have explained a little of the program to my DH who is helping me cook. He is retired, I took a healthy cooking class in 2010 after I was laid off from my nursing position. We are making much more healthful meals . I have been becoming more active since starting Spark and am enjoying a healthier life style.

Personal Information:
I live on the Front Range of Northern Colorado and spend lots of time at our mountain cabin where I have started trekking. I am married, have 2 grown children, 2 grandchildren, a Golden Retriever and a cat.

Other Information:
I love to read, hike, swim, bike, run and spend time with the grandkids. My 2 new hobbies are healthful cooking and running. I was laid off work Sep 1, 2010 and wasn't able to find another job so I just retired on my 65th birthday 5/10/12!

How have you been? Are you getting in snow in your mountains this year? We are quite, quite dismal here. Drought would be an appropriate word for this winter. Our grass is green out in the yard and that's something that's totally unheard of for this time of year here. Usually we have 3 feet of snow by now.

Wanted to stop by and wish you a very Happy New Year! I'm finally back (it's been soooo long!) and just wanted to let you know that I've missed you and that I look forward to reconnecting. Hope you are doing well and that 2014 will be your best year yet!
