Yay! It's time for the Spring 2016 5% Challenge!

My name is Karen, I'm 66 years old, and I'm DONE being the fat girl! I started my Spark journey in Oct., 2010 at 230 lbs and lost 80 lbs down to 150. I've gained a few of those back. :( My ultimate goal is 135-140.

I am participating in the Spring 5% Challenge starting March 26th, 2016, as a member of the Casual Travelers team!

Dieting doesn't work, but eating healthy foods and moving a little more does, so that is my plan. I am so thankful for SP and those here ...

I live in western NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and a 2-year-old domestic shorthair housecat named St. Pat. :) I'm blessed with a husband of 47 years who loves me no matter what. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 12-year-old daughter.

I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.

A favorite pastime is crocheting. It's relaxing and helps me to keep my mind off food.

I enjoy country music, especially the older music, and also southern gospel music.

I love to read, and am addicted to my Kindle Fire. My reading interests include a variety of fiction genres depending on my mood, non-fiction historical books, and inspirational.

Did you know working out comes in many forms, and not all of them will leave you breathless and drenched in sweat? “Exercise doesn’t have to be spending an hour at the gym. Just get moving,” even if it's just for 10 minutes a day. “Take a dance class, go for a hike, walk the dog, or vacuum your house. It all counts!” So, yes, those late-night solo dance parties where you pretend you’re Beyoncé or Rita Hayworth are well worth it. Just get your body moving. Before you know it, you will have started a work out routine!
