EVERYTHING ON MY SPARKPAGE IS COPYRIGHT TO ME. PLEASE DO NOT USE WITHOUT PERMISSION. THANK YOU. While I've always been healthy and active (I love to dance and I walk and do yoga ) I've also been overweight (and occasionally obese) nearly my entire adult life. Finding Spark People in 2008 was the start of my journey to losing and (mostly) staying in a healthy weight range.

I have no desire to be skinny -- I have always loved my curves and being a woman of substance! -- but I do want to be sure I stay healthy and that I can move my body in ways that I enjoy.

My highest weight ever was 194 (that's considered obese). I started Spark at 184 -- and lost 26 pounds. My lowest weight was 158. I am now in July 2012 at 168..and I want to get back into healthy BMI range. I'm aiming for staying between 160 and 165.

I know how to lose weight and to maintain a healthy weight. I know what foods are healthy for me -- I enjoy eating healthy foods and being active!

Namaste, everyone.

Fitness Minutes: 20,578

My Goals:
Goals as of 1/3/11

* Find an alternative to African dance class this semester. Continue yoga and belly dance.
* Track food.
* Enjoy the pleasure of walking around in a healthy body.
* Drink water! Lots of it!
* Go to bed by 11 p.m..




My Program:
Recording my food, and getting my activities in! Eating mindfully and enjoying what I eat. I aim for eating local, whole, and organic foods. I tend to eat vegetarian, but am not averse to eating locally raised chickens and other meat. I use sugar addictively, so I'm shying away from it. I'm finding that once I'm "off" it, everything else tastes plenty delicious!

Personal Information:
I'm a dancer and can be persuaded to try just about any kind of dance. I do contra and square regularly, swing now and then, and cajun and zydeco when I can. I like to walk and swim, although it is not nearly as much fun as dancing! I also play stand-up bass and rhythm guitar when I get the chance. I'm a communications and conflict resolution consultant and trainer.

Other Information:
I read a lot of nonfiction, primarily books on spirituality and conflict resolution. Books currently by my bedside are The World Without Us, The Biology of Belief, and Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington.

Thank you. I am very blessed with family and friends. Quite frankly that is the only reason I don't move to a warmer climate. I just can not give up all of the people here that I love.

Hope you are doing well. God Bless and have a wonderful day.

Bonnie

Yes, I am glad that I am good enough to do some cleaning!

Have not been able to get out to therapy as I had planned in my last note because of all of the terrible weather that we have had. Was so afraid of falling.

We are having another snow tonight. I know it will end someday. Please?

Hope you are well.

Have a good Sunday my friend.

Bonnie
