My name is Terry. I retired as a Microbiologist in 2004. Since then I have been a home maker. I live with my husband Randy on our farm. I like the quiet life; it suits me.

I have three grown children Holly 25, David 24, and April 23. They were a real handful when they were growing up! I was a single mom for twelve years. It was the hardest job I ever had.

I suffer from complicated migraines and recurring episodes of major depression. For those reasons, I am on a lot of medications that I take daily. Unfortunately, those medicines are stored in my fat and when I lose weight too quickly I become very ill. That's why, this time, my goal is to spread my weight loss over a year's time.

I decided to get serious about my health when I turned 53. That's when I joined SparkPeople. Over the years I neglected my health and did not exercise and that led me to become unfit and obese. I would get winded just answering the phone! I knew it was time for a change. I started walking in January and watching my daily nutrition on August 6th.

I know this will be a long journey for me and I'm bound to have set backs. My goal is to get right back on track and learn to live a healthy life style. I feel SP is a powerful tool that will help me stay on track.

Fitness Minutes: 2,514

My Goals:
My goal is to reinvent myself gradually over a year's time. I would like to get down to a normal weight and have a routine fitness program that I stick to. I would like to be much more energetic and I'm sure the first two goals will help.

My Program:
I'm doing the nutrition tracker for my food and walking briskly for an hour at least every other day.
