Ready to be FIT & HEALTHY

It has now been 7 years since I started living healthy and I'm never going back! I have struggled my entire life with weight issues. It started early and just got progressively worse over the years. I lost the weight on several occasions only to eventually gain it all back and more. I call it the "Oprah Syndrome" so I guess I'm in good company! Anyway, here I am all these years later. I am determined however to keep this issue under control for once and for all.

It has now been 7 years since I started living healthy and I'm never going back! I have struggled my entire life with weight issues. It started early and just got progressively worse over the years. I lost the weight on several occasions only to eventually gain it all back and more. I call it the "Oprah Syndrome" so I guess I'm in good company! Anyway, here I am all these years later. I am determined however to keep this issue under control for once and for all.

I started Weight Watchers in November 2007 and have been faithfully weighing in regularly. I told myself I would attend for at least two years no matter what..., gain or lose. The weight loss was ssssssslow averaging only 3 or so pounds a month but it eventually added up to 80+ pounds off. Along the way I found Spark People and I am so happy I did. It has taken my fitness in particular to a whole new level and provides a dose of daily motivation that I need. I'm exercising more and paying much more attention to my nutrition. The articles are so positive and the community is fabulous. I feel like I finally have tools in hand to be successful for the long term.

Thanks for visiting my page and feel free to stop by anytime. Let's ROCK ~ Spark on! ~

SparkPoints: 169,153

Fitness Minutes: 129,474

My Goals:
Started Weight Watchers in Nov 2007. It's all about the accountability for me. Reached goal in June 2009 and now a lifetime member. Still would like to lose a few more pounds... Will get there eventually!

My Program:
Weight Watchers Program. On this plan nothing is really off limits. I try to avoid foods that are "triggers" and a problem for me. Everyone has certain foods that they just can't handle sensibly. AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE as they will make you feel like a failure when you lose control.

I am currently participating the BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge) and BTS (Beyond the Scale) on Sparkpeople. I'm on the Scarlet Seals and Green Guardian teams and really enjoy all of our virtual interaction.

Work-out Regime

At the gym for 45-60 minutes 5 days a week taking indoor cycling, cardio and strength training classes. I use the Nike Fuel Band to track my everyday movements and working in food service makes a big impact. Also try to run 5k+ three times a week.



Personal Information:
My name is Rhonda. Very blessed to live on the beautiful Oregon Coast.



Other Information:
Love to run, golf, read, bike, hike, travel and spend time with family. In 2011 I did my first Sprint level Triathlon, in 2012 my first half marathon, and completed by first full marathon in 2013... for sure will plan to do more! I am blessed to have a great supportive husband of more than 25+ years ~ a beautiful daughter ~ and an adorable granddaughter who is growing up much too fast!.... oh, and I can't forget Scamp. She is just a great cat.

Feel free to stop by and chat anytime.

Hello beautiful Rhonda! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of love, laughter and good food! We went out to eat and it was a great meal. Then off to a movie with the friends we shared Thanksgiving with. A wonderful day...but I surely miss those leftovers! I'll make a small turkey breast with stuffing and cranberries this weekend..those are the left overs I miss the most!

Stay sparky my friend! emoticon

Thanks dear Rhonda for the halloween pumpkin goodie...he's a cutie patootie! I can't even TRUST myself to bring Halloween candy to the house. We donate a big bag from Costco to the local Habitat for Humanity and hope they actually give it to the one's who need it...not their staff! emoticon
