Feeling better than ever!

I'm down 40 pounds, but I am struggling to lose the last 15. I love hiking and biking, but I hate hot weather.

Fitness Minutes: 7,124

My Goals:
My number 1 goal is to be healthy! I'd be more comfortable if I dropped about 15 more pounds.

Trying for a 1/2 pound/week weight loss.

My Program:
I love yoga & currently take 2 classes a week. I also do strength training & the elliptical 2-3 times a week, depending on my schedule. I try to walk for at least 30 minutes every day & I walk fast-not too many people like to walk with me!

I'm focusing on adding at least 5 fruits & veggie servings a day & cutting back on processed foods, but not having much success with dropping the weight.

Personal Information:
I live in St. Charles, MO, about 15 minutes west of St. Louis.

Other Information:
I love hiking & cycling & being outside. I want to visit all our national parks. Our family recently returned from a week in the Smoky Mountains & I love it there! I don't like running & the only time I do so is with my dog on a trail-it's easier on my knees. I also like riding my bike on my favorite trail, which doesn't have a lot of big hills.

I'm not going to make it to the get together. My daughter is coming home from college for the weekend and we have a lot planned.

Enjoy the 5k! I'm not a runner - except on trails - because it's too hard on my knees. My favorite trail has been underwater since spring. It's off the Katy Trail in St. Charles and it's been closed all spring and summer.

Have fun!

Hey Kat, I see we live close together and we are both on the St. Louis team!

Just wondering if you are headed to the get-together Sara has put together?

I am running the 5K at the Italian Fest but might make an effort to go if I am not too worn out lol

Let me know!

Way to go KatB. I actually turned down a dinner out tonight. Don't think I can control myself just yet.

I hear you, this site is massive. I have not had the time to figure out how to properly use all the features. I would like to start planning more meals using the recipies shared.

You look great in your picture. You are not old at 51, we keep getting better and are finally at an age where we know how to enjoy life.

Have a great day!

Your spark page really encouraged me. I am also having trouble seeing the benefits of all the exercise and change in eating habits. My Gyno. tells me it is hormonal (menopausal). Hoping that the hormone replacement will help.
