January 1, 2016 I started making the effort to lose weight again! I am staying away from sugar and flour almost completely. That eliminates most of the things that I love to pig out on and forces me to eat much healthier.
It seems that as soon as I stopped having sugar and flour I stopped having the insatiable cravings for cookies, candy, ice cream

My hubby got me a Fitbit for Christmas. It is motivating me to walk more everyday. I am determined to beat my step goal everyday!

In 2016 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Weekends with my hubby. We are doing about 2- 8 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.

I must learn to eat healthier and make permanent changes to my diet.
I will also walk, run, hike, bike, climb stairs, stretch, get stronger.

Personal Information:
I am 55, happily married to Tom. We live in Tacoma WA.
We raised 5 terrific (most of the time) kids. Now we are enjoying the freedom of them being grown up.

We rescued an Italian Mastiff in Nov. 2015, we named her Elbe and just love her.

I work as the manager
at a distribution center in Kent. I get to drive a pretty blue tractor /trailer sometimes.

I like to explore, hike, garden and travel.

There are many wonderful hiking trails not far from my home in Tacoma that I visit often.
Tom and I have gone hiking at least once a week for over five years now.

    emoticon It's good to see you on here. I didn't think you got on anymore because your last blog is from 2013, and your status hasn't been updated in quite some time. But now I see you must be using your spark people as your fitness tracker, etc.

    emoticon Glad to see how active you still are. It's a great motivation.

    Thanks for stopping by! My husband and I stopped the sweets for 2 weeks and it was easier as time went on. Trying to eliminate as much sugar from the foods we eat as possible. SP says try to buy products with less than 8 grams of sugar in it or less. It is hard, but can be done! Keep going! I had been down with a sinus infection recently and then a bad virus, but better today. I am ready to get back at our walking and biking! Hate that it is getting so hot though! emoticon 96 on Saturday!
    Enjoy your hiking with the better weather! emoticon emoticon
