Ready to be FIT & HEALTHY

It has now been over 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 over 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! ~

Member Since: 12/28/2008

SparkPoints: 217,019

Fitness Minutes: 174,554

My Goals:
Started Weight Watchers in Nov 2007. It's all about the accountability for me. Reached initial BMI 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.

Work-out Regime

At the gym for 45-60 minutes 5 days a week taking indoor cycling, cardio kickboxing and strength training classes. I use the FitBit to track my everyday movements and working in food service makes a big impact. Also try to run 5k+ three times a week and love to participate in running events. I have done one marathon, several half marathons and have more on the schedule.



Personal Information:
My name is Rhonda. Very blessed to live on the beautiful Oregon Coast. We have a 2nd home in AZ and love to spend time there with family and friends.



Other Information:
Enjoy running, golf, reading, biking, hiking, traveling and spending 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. I am blessed to have a great supportive husband of more than 25+ years ~ a beautiful daughter and son-in-law ~ 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.
