Hiya!

I'm a 55 yo with a bazillion interests. This sounds nuts---but I actually ENJOY losing weight, exercising, and improving my well-being. I feel so much better when I'm on the journey. Its the languishing and doing nothing that really drives me crazy. I'm glad I learned about Spark People...and I love the support and tools that I see available.

My Goals:
I'm fabulous at losing weight. I'm just fabulous at gaining it back as well. Its just that "keeping-the-weight-off" thingy that's so stinkin' difficult. Geez, this sounds terrible....but I want to lose a eighty pounds in a year (by November 2015)

My Program:
I stick strictly to a paleo or a primal diet. Its also called an ancestral diet.....because it is what human kind lived on for millennia prior to the domestication of grains and animals. I eat lots of veggies and only lean grass fed protein (usually chicken, turkey, fish, or shellfish....but i do work in some red meat---i bought a half beef that was grass fed). As i'm trying to do low card...i also restrict a lot of fruit. but nuts are good! I avoid all grains and most legumes. do have some dairy..but mostly in the form of (low carb) cheese.

Personal Information:
I live in southwestern Pennsylvania. I believe its perfect living here....we get four distinct seasons...each as gorgeous as the next. There are tons of biking trails, parks, forests and rivers. I live close enough to the Appalachians so I can ski and hike. Also---I thoroughly love my job. Some people have to work...I'm one of those who feels like I GET to work. I'm a private practice internal medicine doc at a teaching hospital.

Other Information:
I love to bike ride---especially distance riding. I also like smooth jazz, scuba diving, flying, travelling, downhill skiing, kayaking and hiking. unfortunately, I had arthroscopy on my right knee three times----but quite on the mend.

ok...I like science fiction and I love to read world history. so I guess that makes me nerdy....but in a geek chic kinda way. Travel is a big big passion of mine.
