Hi My name is Holly and I am 50 yrs old and have been with Spark People for over 4 years. What a time it has been. I never thought I could really lose 40 lbs when I started but I was going to give it a good try. Well here we are a few years later and I have gone past my original goal of 36 lbs and have lost a total of over 40 lbs!
And maintained my 40 lb loss for the last 3 year.
I have run in numerous 5K's since July of 2013. And a 10K in April of 2015
Thanks to all the wonderful people that I have met along the way and have cheered me on to lose the weight and to provide the support. Somehow I feel like I can't let my friends down on this site which then spurs me on to go exercise if I am thinking twice about it.
Let's keep up the great work my wonderful spark friends, together we can do anything!

My goal was to lose weight, and to get in great shape. I can run for the first time in my life.
Spark people has helped me lose over 40 lbs.
I plan on traveling all over the world as time permits so I want to be in the best shape possible to climb stairs and ruins no matter where we go.


My Program:
Cardio at least 6 days a week for 45 mins to an hour.
I have come to love exercise and look forward to it and really do think of it as "me time".
I will add in more strength training this year and continue to train for another 5K.
Inclines on the treadmill are great workouts so I will add them in on non run days as well as the elliptical.



Personal Information:
I live in St. Paul MN.
I have been married for 30 years to a wonderful man that is extremely supportive no matter my size or weight. He has always loved me for me!
I have sparked him as well to watch what he eats and how much, he is not as crazy about it as I am but baby steps are great!


Other Information:
I have 2 beautiful daughters.
My oldesthas graduated from college and my youngest is a senior in college.They are both naturally thin girls and I am so glad that they inherited their fathers metabolism! They are very supportive of me and my healthy life style change and willing to try new recipes as long as they aren't too crazy. Of course, these are girls that grew up eating octopus and squid so they are pretty brave eaters!

    ~ emoticon ~Interesting things about Friends and Friendship~ emoticon ~
    Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something
    you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship,
    you really haven't learned anything.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon BEST FRIENDS emoticon emoticon emoticon
    They know you are crazy, and still choose to be seen with you in public.
    Life's journey is easier when you hear a friends footsteps behind you.
    Friends are like your backbone. They are always there when you need support.

    The most memorable people in life will be the friends
    who loved you when you weren't the most lovable.
    If you really want your friends to remember you, give them something cheap.

    A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart,
    and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
