Deb's Corner

Hi! Welcome to my page. I am updating my Spark Page, since I haven't done so in almost three years. I originally started my Spark People journey on April 13, 2011. It is now April 3, 2014. I am just coming back from a five month hiatus. I've had a rough time since October of 2014. Among other things I lost my wonderful Dad in January of this year. That has hit me hard and grief has made life difficult since then. Due to medication and living arrangement changes I have gained 20 pounds ...
Hi! Welcome to my page. I am updating my Spark Page, since I haven't done so in almost three years. I originally started my Spark People journey on April 13, 2011. It is now April 3, 2014. I am just coming back from a five month hiatus. I've had a rough time since October of 2014. Among other things I lost my wonderful Dad in January of this year. That has hit me hard and grief has made life difficult since then. Due to medication and living arrangement changes I have gained 20 pounds during the five months that I have been gone. To some, 20 pounds may not seem so daunting, but to someone who had never weighed over 120 pounds in my life it has proven to be quite the challenge. I must get back to my Spark People roots and immerse myself into the program once more to drop that poundage and regain my health and fitness. I have never been an overweight person until now. Having gained this weight I have developed an appreciation for how hard it is to lose any extra pounds. I am hoping that by reconnecting here I will make new friends and find the motivation and support that I need to be successful. I am sure that I can do this, like the Beatles," with a little help from my friends."

My Goals:
My goals are very simple. I want to lose 20 pounds to reach my goal weight. I want to exercise to become healthier and to be a good example for the rest of my family.

My Program:
I am in the process of reconnecting with my gym. It is only ten dollars a month, so it is very affordable. I have moved in the past three years, so I have to change area locations. I am drinking the water everyday and trying to cut out sweets from my diet completely. I will be walking on the treadmill three times a week for one hour and I will do strength training as well. I will borrow my daughter's bike and ride that around the neighborhood on dry days.

Personal Information:
My name is Deb Teveldahl, originally from Cascade Locks, Oregon I have moved to the southeast Portland area. I have two children. Sam is 30 and Jeni is 28. I have two grandsons, one belonging to each of my children, ages 5 and 2 respectively. I am retired and live with my daughter. I babysit both grandchildren for my kids.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading, quilting, embroidery, and knitting. I am an avid reader. I've read the Spark. My favorite fiction authors are James Patterson and Tami Hoag. I enjoy camping, hiking and biking so I live in the right area.

Late night Monday check in. Weekends are tough for me as you can tell I didn't even check in. I did a little exercise and tried not to snack too much. Friday was my weigh in day and I'm happy to report that I'm down 4 pounds emoticon
Today I slept in so I forced myself to do my cardio tonight. I stayed withint my calorie limits. All in all not a bad Monday. emoticon

I was mostly teasing about you being manic! I'm glad you are doing well.

Yes, I still have my grandsons 2-3 days a week. My son will be 13 on the 17th...Thursday! Crazy! Time sure goes by fast. The 'baby' will be 2 on the first of August & the older grandson 8 in Sept!

Just a quick check in, I did 30 mins on the elliptical, drank all my water, stayed within calorie range and felt pretty good today.
What did you do?
