My name is Merilyn. I live in British Columbia, Canada. I am recently married ( 2007) and have two children and four grandkids.
I have lost 10 pounds so far with SparkPeople and will continue to use this site in the hopes of dropping a few more pounds.
My main reason for using this site is to maintain my good health and to stay strong and fit.
I am thrilled to have met some nice people from all over the world since I joined SP.

Member Since: 1/18/2008

My Goals:
Exercise daily, either, walking, swimming, biking , elliptical or some other movement. I strive for at least an hour at a time.
Eating the right foods is critical to good health. My daily challenge is to eat enough fruits, veggies and get enough fibre.

My Program:
I am counting calories with the help of a journal and I walk and use my elliptical trainer I also practice Hatha Yoga as a stretching routine.
I have started a running program with my walking. I am also racewalking periodically. I have taken up swimming recently as well.
Weight training on the Stability ball at least three times per week.

Personal Information:
My name is Merilyn and I live in British Columbia, Canada. I have two children and four grandchildren.
As of October 2010, I am a retired person. And loving it. Still not enough hours in my day for all my activities. Hoping to start Zumba classes soon as well.

Other Information:
I love to dance, read and my hobbies include sewing and knitting and gardening. I love cats and have recently added a new addition to our family. She is called Munchkin because she is that.
I am loving all the new friends I have since joining Sparkpeople. Smile.

    Hi. Not sure how it happened but my profile as ericah077 was deleted. I have opened a new one under erica077. Please I would like to join our group again if you would invite me. I tried looking for Ontario Walker but was unable to bring it up. I was really angry with sparkpeople. The wrong account got deleted. I am really glad I was able to find you with my searches. Hope you have been well. Hope to talk to you soon.
