In my 61st year and loving it! Health is just as important as weight to me. I am doing Intermittent Fasting (IF) mostly 16/8, eating strict keto. Practicing mindfulness and meditation has changed my life.

Member Since: 6/12/2009

My Goals:
To lose about 25 more pounds - to travel everywhere one day.

My Program:
I like being active outdoors - walking, mainly. Nature is my significant other. :) I also love regularly working out at home to Youtube channels like HasFit. I LOVE their workouts. Also, pilates, personalized physical therapy videos, and guided meditations.

Personal Information:
I'm a NATURE LOVER and a true southern gothic introvert weirdo, who happens to be a mother of two young adults. I am a Manager, an Activist, a Designer, a Photographer, a Humorist, a Feminist, a Progressive, an Artist, a Environmentalist, a Writer, a Volunteer, and an Entrepreneur.

Other Information:
Movies: Blackkklansman, Black Panther, Northern Soul, A Hard Day's Night, Room With A View, The Philadelphia Story, The Graduate, Cocteau's Beauty and The Beast, Sullivan's Travels, Cold Mountain, Manon of the Spring, The Family Stone. Activist documentaries like Cowspiracy, Earthlings, all Michael Moore films, etc. I also love TCM. I am glued to Netflix mostly; Schitt's Creek, Call The Midwife, Orange Is The New Black, and The Get Down have been favorites. Handmaid's Tale, Insecure, Poldark. I loved The Apology about the enslaved women during Japanese war - so called "comfort women." I also love Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan in Catastrophe, the comedy series on Amazon about married life in London.

Music: from old school Motown and Beatles, The Marvelettes to the B-52s, Roxy Music to Cat Power, Aretha Franklin to Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell to George Jones, Mahavishnu Orchestra to Elvis Costello, David Bowie to Shangri-Las, Stevie Wonder to many others.

    Started a new weight loss goal - 25 to go - this should put me well out of the BMI Overweight zone.

    Ten pounds away from my goal of getting out of the Overweight BMI zone into the Normal zone. I'm pushing for by the end of the year, December 31, 2019, but also extending some advance mercy due to the holidays. Not that I'm expecting to make a bunch of slip-ups, but that I'm being gentle with myself. I work hard and don't want to undo everything I've worked for, but I am my friend, not my police. :) I figure for each indulgent treat I have, I am willing to add extra days (4-7?) to my goal date.

    I've been doing LCHFMP (low carb, high fat, moderate protein) but I might want to have a delicious treat at some point (my treats include healthy options that STILL have no sugar or superhigh carb content. Yes, it's possible-ha).

    Summer of 2019: I am doing the 21-Day Quantum Wellness Cleanse inspired by Kathy Freston's book, eliminating five things for 21 days. Caffeine, Alcohol, Gluten, Sugar, Meat/Dairy. On day 12 and I feel fabulous.
