I never want weight (over or under) to define me. I know that a healthy weight and stronger bones will allow me to live a better quality of life and allow me to be more flexible and stronger.
I have zip-lined in Honduras, and kayaked in Canada.
I want to do more!
I am much younger than my Grandmothers were at the same age, and I plan to continue.


Member Since: 1/4/2012

Fitness Minutes: 60,079

My Goals:
I know the scale isn't everything, but I am going to permanently eliminate 30# from my body.
I want my next bone density test to register positive numbers.
And I plan to get into my favorite jeans very soon.


My Program:
Working on consistency!

Drink 96 oz of water daily.

45 minutes cardio 4 days a week.

Practice gratitude daily.




Personal Information:
I live in the 'snowbelt' of Northeast Ohio: an hour east of Cleveland and 35 minutes west of Erie, Pa. I am the Mom of 3 beautiful children (2 natural and 1 adopted) - American Mom to 5 exchange daughters (3 from Japan, 1 from Italy and 1 from Hong Kong) - and GrandMommy to 2 stunning GrandGirls. I have learned to live comfortably with celiac. But the auto-immmune disorder left me with the challenge of osteoporosis and a slowing thyroid.
Now is my time to reverse the bone loss and the weight gain. I really want to be healthy for this last third of my life. I have so much to be grateful for.


Other Information:
I originally got on Spark People in 2012. And I fell off. Don't know why, but the summer of 2014 found me wanting to eat better and move more. And it has continued. The scale hasn't reflected my lifestyle change, but my clothes are fitting so much better. I am happy about that.

    Just peekin' in on you...to see how you are doing. May is almost over, have you accomplished what you set out to do this month? For me, no. I'm still learning how to not let life get in my way for a healthier me. It's a slow process, but I'm getting there.

    Hope you've had a great week. Enjoy your weekend, Linda!

    Thank you for dropping by my page and for the good thoughts. I'm glad your cataract surgeries have left you with better sight. That is definitely a freedom! Have a wonderful day!

    Even when you've reached your goal, maintaining is a lot of work. Never lose your focus on how far you've come and how badly you want to stay there!

    Hope you're having a great week.
