I am looking to increase my fitness while decrease my weight! I just got re-inspired through my daughter and husband! Since June 16, 2014, I have been. So far 61.2 pounds gone, still more to go, but I can do it....one day at a time...

I'm learning that logging in all my food and exercising at least 30 minutes each day, I stay inspired!

Fitness Minutes: 77,143

My Goals:
I hope to lose over 100 pounds by next year (or whenever!) and get fit at the same time. I will keep on going....

My Program:
I am using Take Shape For Life to help keep my blood sugar even (5-6 small meals a day) as well as exercise. I've lost over 60 pounds since June 2014. I also use SparkPeople page for support. Logging in my food and exercise through My Fitness Pal has also helped.

Personal Information:
I live in the real northern California, just 40 miles south of the Oregon border. Beautiful area, and I am now retired (I used to work for the Klamath National Forest as a NEPA Coordinator). Now I am my church's secretary and LOVE having more time to quilt (and exercise!).

Just a note to encourage you onward....one day at a time....one decision at a time. Here's to a February full of positive choices to help you be the best person that you can be. BTW - I like the flowers of your background. It has been so cold and so snowy that I long for the colors of spring and summer. Today has been full of sunshine, but it's still cold and white (with brown road spatter thrown in for good measure). Sunshine and flowers into your day.
