I've battled my weight most of my life. I did manage to lose 50 pounds and was down to what would be considered an average weight for my height. I loved it but still somehow let myself get to 80 pounds overweight.

I set a New Year's Resolution for myself, something I never do, to get fitter and healthier and to feel better about myself.

Member Since: 2/2/2006

Fitness Minutes: 138,731

My Goals:
First and foremost I want to feel healthier by eating with nutrition in mind.

Of course I want to lose weight as well with another 45 pounds to go.

My Program:
Right now I am using SparkPeople to help me count my calories and track my exercise program.

I am riding my recumbant bike for 30 minutes daily, doing the Biggest Loser Workout DVD for Strength and Sculpting and add walking in whenever possible.

Personal Information:
I''m a Californian, transplanted to Wisconsin 15 years ago and I love it.

All of my children are grown and live in the same small town that I do, along with 7 of my 11 grandchildren.

I retired four years ago and no longer run a daycare in my home....I love being retired but do miss the little ones sometimes....to fill in that gap I go to my daughter's daycare and snuggle up with her daycare children...I just love reading to them and watching them grow!

Other Information:
I write for a product review site called Epinions.com and my profile name is kamel622 there as well.

Although I''m in my sixty's I like to say that:

I''m not sixtysomething, I''m $59.95 plus shipping and handling!

    No one is perfect, nor should you expect them to be. Flaws can build character; acknowledge them and strive for growth over perfection. Adrienne Austermann

    Just wanted to say Good Morning - looks like we are biking together - and wouldn't it be fun to actually do that sometime!! But FL and WI are not conducive to doing that. Have a great day and keep up the great miles.

    BTW - I also recently retired from DayCare but it was at an admin level as I was Business Mgr of our Church and School for 36 years. I got to go play with the kids, get them all 'excited' and then leave to go back to my office. Yes, sometimes the teachers wanted to punch me - lol. It was a FUN!!
