The Non-Magical, Non-Mystery Tour

Bear with me, I'm sort of a goofball, and as you will learn shortly, EXCESSIVELY VERBOSE.

I plan to start by losing around 120 pounds; I'll decide on a final goal once I get down there and see what the landscape is like (it's been a while!)

I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers in 2009, but then stress & life intervened and I gained it back, plus a little extra.

So here I am. Uh... hi!

I blog a bit here and there, as I have thoughts. ...

I blog a bit here and there, as I have thoughts. Anything that shows up is likely to be long (VERBOSE!) so if you do want to read it, you might want to grab a cup of coffee.

(I must give credit where credit is due: my page title comes from a blog by Linda Holmes, who is awesome and a better writer than I'll ever hope to be. My avatar is my version of what I would look like if the ever excellent Natalie Dee consented to draw my portrait.)

My Program:
Tracking, using data to make changes.

I continuously need to work on getting enough protein, keeping carbs down, and watch fat and junky food on busy days.

Fitness - burn at least 800 calories a week, some combination of running & walking.

Mostly my plan is to not do anything I would hate to do "forever." So I don't plan to work out 7 days a week or give up any particular kind of food or anything like that.

Personal Information:
I live in The Jerz; bought a house 7/2013! I love my freakin house.

Married; no kids. But probably will think about having some within the next 5 years, so I'd like to get as much as possible weight off before then.

Other Information:
Lifelong dream realized 11/9/2013:

I adopted my very own smooshy little rescue dog!!

DOGGGGG! My life is complete, finally.

OH MY GAWD that sounds awful! They did explain to him how to clean them correctly, and I got mine out 3 years ago so I remember the "rules". He's doing great today (they gave him percocet, lol).

Hi Lola,

I am very sorry that I wasn't active on Spark for a while, or following my fellow sparkers journies...

I had a challenging year with some set backs in my journey and goals. I posted a blog about t yesterday.

But the great news is I came out of it very blessed, and ready to re-start my journey!
I restarted last Thursday!

I hope to hear from you and continue to cheer you on!
Hugs,
Lisa
