Hiya!

I'm a 58 yo with a bazillion interests. This sounds nuts---but I actually ENJOY losing weight, exercising, and improving my well-being. but only ONCE I get started. It's that getting started thingy that I'm not so good about. I feel so much better when I'm on the journey. It's the languishing and doing nothing that really drives me crazy.


Member Since: 2/7/2012

My Goals:
I'm fabulous at losing weight. I knocked off 85 pounds in 5 1/2 month......by exercising and eating superbly well! Historically, though, I've been just as fabulous at gaining it back. Its just that "keeping-the-weight-off" thingy that's been so stinkin' difficult.


My Program:
I stick strictly to a low glycemic index/paleo or a primal diet. It's also called an ancestral diet because is what our ancestors lived on for thousands of years.

I eat lots of fruit, nuts, and veggies. I also eat lots of lean grass fed protein (usually chicken, turkey, fish, or shellfish...and I do work in some pork and beef.) As I'm trying to do low glycemic index/low carb...I avoid all grains and most legumes. I do occasionally eat some some dairy...but its infrequent and mostly in the form of a full fat cheese.



Personal Information:
I live in southwestern Pennsylvania. I believe it's perfect living here; we have four distinct seasons...each as gorgeous as the next.

There are skads of biking trails, parks, forests and rivers. I live close enough to the Appalachians so I can ski and hike.

I work for a wonderful home health agency and hospice. I thoroughly enjoy doing humanitarian work.


Other Information:
I love to bike ride---especially distance riding. I also like smooth jazz, scuba diving, flying, travelling, downhill skiing, kayaking and hiking.

Ok...I like science fiction and I love archeology, genetics, physiology, biochemistry, physical science, and world history. I guess that makes me nerdy.

Travel is a particularly big big passion of mine.

    When we can’t love, trust or free ourselves from resentment, fear, shame and guilt, we attract what resonates with that vibration. The solution? Inner discovery. Valerie Sheppard
