RUBYCLAIRE is a SparkPeople Motivator!
ALWAYS been the smallest kid in class and staying small most of my adult life was nice, but somehow, somewhere along the way, that all changed & I ballooned up to 207 lbs, which is what I weighed when I started this Spark program back on January 11, 2010. by the end of August, I was down 34lbs but have not been tracking or exercising since and have now found four of those lost pounds. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! The original plan Spark People set out for me was to weigh 157lbs by December 11th. I CAN DO IT. In my last profile blog, I said that, "I am now finally taking care of me and taking back my life!" Admittedly, I've slipped, but not any more.
I know I can NEVER look like I did back in the 1980's, (see my photo gallery) heck, that was 30 years ago, I was a baby at 33 yrs, BUT, I can still look and feel good again for my 63 years and THAT is my intention. Now onward & upward, look out world 'cause here I come!!!
MAIN FUTURE GOAL:
To be back down to 130/135 lbs,
BUT, for now my SP mid goal is to get to 157lbs. I'll reset my goals when I reach that point.
As of today, 8/7/11, I weigh 183 lbs & am determined to weigh 157 lbs by 12/11/11. I WILL GET THERE!

How are you? Been a while - it's weird that we live like a mile apart yet rarely run across each other unless we're in a different town. ;)
I hope you're ready for winter! It's a cold one this morning, but beautiful as only our home can be. :)
