Hello! My name is Lori and I'm a 48 year old stay at home mom to 3 teenagers and 9 critters. I'm in my 7th year on Sparkpeople. In these 7 years, I have been chubby and I have been thin and I have been everything in-between. I lose and I gain. I gain and I lose. I started 2016 about 16 pounds over my goal weight and am currently working on whittling that down. Again. (I lost 20 lbs here once before).
I really love Sparkpeople for the motivation and tools offered here. I'm aiming to be the healthiest and fittest mom I can be. I want to reach my goal weight and stay consistent at maintaining. I am dedicated to being healthy and fit!

In September 2009 I quit smoking after 23 years, joined Sparkpeople and started running! I've been running ever since. I have run a handful of 5K's, 2 10K's, 2 Half Marathons and have run a leg in the Beach 2 Bay Marathon Relay 7 times and counting. I do struggle at running, but I just keep on going! I also do a lot of walking. I try to walk at least 3 miles on the days I don't run.
I go through phases with ST. I want to become more consistent and learn to love it more.

This year, I have made logging my food a daily habit and I log everything I eat and drink. It really helps to hold myself accountable.

    I'm mid west (north mid west lol) so not much tropical going on here. My gardening usually consist of me picking out what I like then my mom tells me where it has to go and or if it will work or not. She had a great green thumb and really enjoys it, I'm sure one day when life is a bit less hectic I'll get into really thriving and loving it more than I do now BUT I'm going to do some hydrangeas for sure, I think they are beautiful and have never had them before. Hostas in the front beds with some color mixed in is all I've come up with thus far.
    Feel free to share any ideas!!
