I joined Spark People in the fall of 2007. I want to make exercise a priority in my life, for health reasons.

I lost my weight-42 lbs on Weightwatchers and have been at goal weight or lower since April 2006.

Been here a while, then gone. Tried WeightWatchers. No luck there. I just need to regroup. Dumped the WeightWatchers.

Taking it one day at a time right now.

Member Since: 9/4/2007

SparkPoints: 21,804

Fitness Minutes: 28,632

My Goals:
I'm just trying to get back to where I was 4 years ago. I gained back some weight due to thyroid issues.

Updated 7/18/2010. I have had thyroid cancer and had the thyroid removed and while waiting for RAI gained back some of the weight. I need to lose about 15 lbs. I am setting September 24 as my projected date to achieve this.

My other goal is to get my A1c tests down into the normal range so I don't have to go on diabetes medication.

My Program:
I'm following a 1200 calorie diet, along with treadmill 3 days a week and riding my new bicycle when the opportunity arises

Personal Information:
My name is Karen. I live in Northern California. Been married for 38 years to a wonderful man. I have 2 grown sons and a daughter in law who is a sweetheart.

Other Information:
I like to quilt and sew and knit. I am learning to paint watercolors and acrylics. I love music mostly rock- like from the 70's and 80's.

We like to travel.

I like to read mystery novels- and most anything by Nicholas Sparks, Janet Evonovich and Mary Higgins Clark, Maeve Binchy, and Carl Hiaasen.

Welcome the Walking, Walking, Walking team. I hope you take advantage of the special goals ... tracking blood sugar two times a day. I actually started the group for that purpose and faithfully track even when I goof. IF you join the team goal, it will show up on "other goals"

We have a few games that we play and threads to share what's happening with us. Please feel free to start threads that interest you. I am the leader, but don't lead much...we all sort of lead each other. I find that supporting each other is the most effective part of SP!!

So, again, welcome to the team!
