I live in Iowa; I knit, spin, weave, sew. If it has fiber I am all over it. Except for quilting and baskets; not enough time in the day.

Was off SparkPeople for a long, long time. But have found a new way to go. In April 2012 I reached my first goal of losing 60 pounds and have been at maintenance ever since. Which is not quite true. If you talked with my coach I was maintaining. But I gained weight back.

According to BMI and current weight charts (which are totally inaccurate and illogical) I was still counted as obese at 161. But right now I do not feel as good as I could. Sooooo, on the trail to lose what I have gained and perhaps go a bit lower to see how that feels.

SparkPoints: 51,857

Fitness Minutes: 20,163

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to limber up and gain more stamina. The fact that pounds drop off is an added benefit.

My Program:
I have added more walking; taking the stairs going up. It is bumpy going with being consistent with weights.

Personal Information:
Grace
Iowa City, Iowa
The hope is to retire soon (2014) for a number of reasons: 1-more time with DB; 2-would be able to walk more and not be tied to an office; 3-fibre related things, creating, conferences, etc.; 4-be outside.

Other Information:
"Make it work" has become a talisman for me. Many times I want to walk away but Tim G's voice in my head will not let me and so I go back into the fray to try and make it work.

What a nice thing to say about me! Thank you for stopping by my Bad News Blog and leaving some blog love. I knew I had to write about this and get it out or I'd probably keep on gaining. I felt lighter just posting it. and of course I feel lighter also because I'm making better food choices too. It was kind of you to leave me that encouragement. emoticon

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Hugs,
