The ease with which to do it, really keeps me motivated. I want to check and see how I am doing. The different reads and sites with the interaction of people is ever so helpful. I'm a little below goal in my calories, but it just happens when I seriously start losing weight and I compensate with extra vitamins. I think my stomach just sort gets smaller and says "I'm full". No Sugar, water, no oils/fats, dairy (for now), meats (for now)...veggies/fruits/grains/beans/seeds/n
uts... I feel full and able to maintain the energy for my exercises...as to keep firing all the spark plugs..., so that I can lose the weight.

SparkPoints: 20,097

Fitness Minutes: 29,607

My Goals:
Most of my adult life, I have been overweight and I look forward to winning the battle of the bulge and reclaiming an ideal weight for 5'3" tall. I'd feel healthier.

I plan to put SparkPages through a work-out and do it!

My Program:
INTENSE:
3 days of weight training: upper and lower.
3 days of Aerobic excercise: Biking, walking/hiking

Eating less calories: but with a plan and purpose. High protein: eggs, egg whites, fish, chicken, turkey, lots of green veggies, a fruit a day, less than whole milk and plenty of water.

Personal Information:
I live 30 minutes from Birmingham, Ala. I'm from Florida. My husband is from Birmingham. We've been married a long time. We have 5 grown children and one grandson.

Other Information:
Proverbs: 3: 5&6 is one of my favorite verses, because I have always needed to be reminded of doing what it says.

I enjoy reading, sewing, and working out with friends. Cycling has become a wonderful past-time for me. Joy is Jesus, My family and friends and others, and me. Sometimes I can get it all backwards.

I'm just having trouble tracking with my food intake at this point. We now have a stationary recumbent, so 'no excuse' for me, with our increasing wet weather.

Slow but sure wins the race. I am keeping to my goal of losing 2 pounds a month.

We had a nice weekend with our tandem buddies! They seem to really like our roads and the trail, too. Some skipped the road ride Sunday to hit the trail again. I think some will be coming back soon.
