Hi there, I returned to Spark People in June of 2014 and have changed my life drastically ever since.
I reached my final goal weight by Christmas 2014 and been maintaining since.

It is now January 2016 and remain below my goal weight by 5 pounds at (110 lbs) which is my long term goal to stay at this weight and at this fitness level if not better.
I feel more confident, energized, younger, stronger and healthier than ever.

I set new goals for myself to become a runner by June of 2015 and to developing my muscles so I can look toned and lean.........nothing can STOP Me!

My first race ever was completed on Sunday June 7th and it was not a 5K, not a 10K but a half marathon (21.1 k). I am a runner and feel awesome!
I am empowered and I WILL REACH All OF MY GOALS!

Personal Information:
My name is Susan and
I am now heading into my 64th year. I plan on living until I am 103 years so I am working on staying as healthy as I can through Spark People.
I am presently going through preparations to donate my right kidney to my son who is on dialysis and has been diabetic since he was two years old. We are hoping for the transplant to take place before Christnmas of 2016.
I am married to my soul mate Brian and have been for going on 39 years . We have 4 adult children and 4 grown grandchildren as well as an honorary daughter and grand daughter who live in Denmark and we are the proud owners of 3 beautiful dogs and 3 wonderful cats that we rescued from being feral and have socialized.

I love to do world travel with my husband and I also enjoy reading a good mystery or crime novel.

I find that power walking and running is the greatest way for me to de-stress and I love it!

When I was in high school 1966-1970 I was on the gymnastics team so every year on my birthday I stand on my head to prove that I still have it!
