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 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!

Outside of my home commitments, I am dedicated to my 82 year young mother who is also my best friend. We spend at least 2 days a week together doing all sorts of fun things.

Other Information:
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!
