Having been on SP since 4/10, I've almost hit my goal weight, a sort-of arbitrary number that puts me into the "healthy weight" on the BMI chart. My fitness goals are much further away. I'd like to do some true fitness daily, whether it's cardio or strength-training. That means not counting housework (no matter how strenuous) as my daily exercise.
By paying attention to what I cook , my (true)hunger level, when/how often I eat, tracking my meals and alternating cardio and strength training, I feel like I have a plan that can work for a lifetime.
I live in eastern Pennsylvania with my husband, two kids, and a dog. I am a SAHM.
I love to cook, which is a blessing. But I also love to eat, which is truly a curse most of the time. I enjoy working with my hands by knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking and watercolor painting. I am active in my church, at my kids schools, and I make a point to spend time with friends.

I'm helping mrsmiller777 get reminders out about the SPARKTOGETHER meetup she announced in January scheduled on:
FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2011 at 6 p.m. in Nazareth, PA.
It's a bring a dish, so first let us know that you're coming, and try to let us know what you're bringing by stopping by at her original blog. I'm going to view what everyone is bringing, and fill in what we may need. Once you reply on the blog page, we'll be sending information including an address and phone number via Spark Mail. Let us know if you have a GPS, or need directions from your location. I hope to meet you there!

Thanks, Susan, for the nice comment - I appreciate it! Like I said, I think we have a lot in common.
It sounds like you live in a beautiful area of the nation. I've always wanted to visit PA - we're talking about heading to D.C. in a couple of years for vacation. Maybe I'll get over there.
Have a great day!

I think SparkPeople is great and as a fellow knitter, I know how important it is to keep yourself in shape to make up for the time you knit! It sounds like we have a lot in common - I love your photos, by the way!
I look forward to your progress!
