Hi all -- I'm a positive-music songwriter from NJ with 9 CDs of my own music out -- but when I got up to 263 it became really hard to perform, fly, etc. I lost a total of 73 pounds on my own, and came here to get motivated and get good recipes and ideas so that the next 50 (or a little more) can come off. Then I had two falls and things were reversed. I got back up to 235, very discouraged. I am still walking a lot, and I have a buddy now 3 days a week which helps. I use indoor walking videos when it rains, dancing in my room, tracking food, and the scale refuses to go in the right direction. I don't even know how to adjust my stats on here to fit where I am. I am walking at least 10,000 steps a day -- often 11,000-13,000, sometimes 15,000 -- once almost 20,000 -- can't say I'm not trying! I guess I will just keep going the best I can. Reading Metabolism Miracle right now.

POSITIVE THINKING is my ball park. Having Spark Buddies helps a lot -- so does walking with my Walkman to tapes I created for myself with the perfect walking beat for me. I am transforming into a new person!

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Feel better -- more energy and no back pain -- able to fly comfortably without seat belt extenders! -- look great in clothes -- feel good about myself. Think less about pain and more about how I can share and serve others. HAVE MORE FUN!!


My Program:
Being honest with myself, tracking calories, allowing treats but finding healthier ones, drinking ALL my waters, extra walking, rest when I need it. Knowing that if I am stuck, I probably need to MOVE more!



Personal Information:
I'm a Jersey girl and I love LBI & Rehoboth Beach DE -- this year I even bought a new bathing suit! My two Shih Tzus, Barker and Piper, are my support team -- I walk them a lot, plus do my solo walks (at least 45 minutes a day most days).

"Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else" -- Judy Garland

"I am proud of us, we have come so far, and I accept us as we are" -- one of my own songs! (LOL -- not too humble)
