Fabulous after 40

I am back again to be with my Spark buddies, and once again to set some goals with nutrition and exercise. I lost my way for a few months, but am determined to get back at it. I do not have before pics when I was bordering 195lbs, simply because I hated my pic taken, and it made me feel worse if I saw one from someone else.Lost 10 on my own before joining spark. I was never sure if I was eating enough when I started the diet, seemed too little but what was too much? A co-worker recommended this ...

I was never sure if I was eating enough when I started the diet, seemed too little but what was too much? A co-worker recommended this site, and I started to track the calories. I soon learned I could eat more food and I was starving myself most days. Without the tracker I have a good understanding of my foods and calories, however I still depend on it, as it makes me accountable, and keeps me signing into spark.

Fitness Minutes: 5,285

My Goals:
I would like to reach 145 pounds. I want to stay motivated with exercise and increase it over time so it becomes permanent in my life. I want to continue to seek out different methods of exercise so I can stay motivated.

My Program:
I will start to track my food daily and meet my caloric range. I will try to eat 5 Freggies and drink 8 cups of water daily . I am doing cardio 3 xweekly of 30min. and strengthening exercises atleast 2 x weekly, which I am slowly increasing with number of exercises.

Personal Information:
I live in London, Ontario, Canada. I am 44, and have been happily married for 17 years. We have 2 amazing boys in their teens. I am a registered nurse, and have been working Orthopaedics/Trauma for 23 years. I have never struggled with weight, until the last few years. I believe age and lack of exercise have played a big factor.
