Time to update my intro. I'm pleased to say that I have been able to stick with the Atkins lifestyle and I am seeing results. That makes me happy. I don't think I've ever stuck with a "diet" or life change for this long ... except for the negative life change of eating too much & not exercising.

I now enjoy exercise, though I will admit - some days it's a push to get myself moving! But once I get into it, I love it.

Spark People has been a lifesaver. I've made some excellent friends here - those who make me laugh, those who build me up & those who help me pick up the pieces when I feel like I've failed. This is a great place to feel safe just being myself.

Fitness Minutes: 32,394

My Goals:
I want to lose over a hundred pounds. I celebrated the first 10 and will continue to celebrate each 10 as they melt away!


My Program:
I was strict low carb and that worked for a while. Now I'm trying to focus more on clean eating - keeping out processed food & sugar. Meats, veggies, whole grains and dairy.

Exercise!
Walking, elliptical, zumba, jillian michaels and aerobics. I wanted to become a runner but with the arthritis in my knee, the doctor has frowned on that! So I get in my power walks which still get me to sweat & make me feel great. Now I need to incorporate more strength training in to my routine.



Personal Information:
My name is Diane and I am 47 yrs old. I'm married with 2 children and we have a bunch of animals. We use to live in the Pocono mountains and loved it, but we moved back to our original hometown of Landenberg :)


Other Information:
My goal is to be the best "me" that I can be.

    ~~~ emoticon ~~~QUOTES ABOUT HUGS~~~ emoticon ~~~

    A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.

    Hugs are fat free, sugar free, and requires no batteries,
    helps the immune system, reduces depression, blood pressure,
    and induces sleep. It's invigorating, rejuvenating,
    and has no unpleasant side effects. It's nothing less than a miracle drug.
    Hugging is also all natural. It's organic, naturally sweet,
    has no artificial ingredients, environmentally safe, and 100% wholesome.
    Hugging is the ideal gift, great for any occasion, fun to give and receive,
    shows that you care, comes with it's own wrapping paper,
    and of course, it's fully returnable
    emoticon I wish it were possible to reach thru the computer & give you a HUG emoticon

    emoticon emoticon Give someone a HUG today. I bet they'll hug you back emoticon emoticon

    “Every day, think as you wake up,
    today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life,
    I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
    to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the
    benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
    I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.
    I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
