It's important for me to maintain a low, healthier weight. I have chronic back/neck pain and any additional weight on my small frame doesn't help. Staying fit & active is key!

I am a Volksporter. I was awarded the 2018 Centurion Challenge for completing one hundred (100) sanctioned 10k (6.2 mi) walks. Yay ME! Fun & healthy!

In Jan.2018 I took an Intro Beginner's Yoga class. I am now a practicing yogi! I took a weekly class March-Dec. and am now continuing to do the same for 2019 as I have found that yoga is a good fit for me. I enjoy the supportive class environment & exploring deeper into yoga.

Best Wishes to all on their own personal life journey!

My Goals:
I committed to reach my final weight loss goal & to maintain it for the rest of my life. It may take more effort & watchfulness now due to age, health & other life factors AND that's okay!

* * * * * * * * * *
* Continue daily tracking of food.

* Drink WATER.

* Continue to create life balance flow within new selected activities. Keep main focus on 3D living.

* Weigh in no more than 1 X week.

My Program:
OLD HISTORY: I am currently back on NS (nutrisystem) to lose 10 (maybe 15) lbs. I was on NS in 2009 and easily & quickly lost 35 lbs (within 3 months). Now I am finding it not so easy with a changed metabolism & at an older age (it has been difficult; I think my scale broke!). The changed/new NS program (frozen food) is awesome though.

Personal Information:
I live in Olympia WA.

Other Information:
UPDATE: My 6 year quit smoking anniversary was 7-3-18. It's awesome having this monkey off my back! On November 1, 2017 I became certified by the American Lung Association (ALA) to facilitate/teach their 8 week smoking cessation course. Awesome sauce! :)

OLD HISTORY: I quit smoking (for a year & a half) & gained some weight, relapsed (for over a year & a half), and then quit again & gained some more (I am now quit forever!). My 4 year quit anniversary was 7-3-16 and I am now back to my pre-quit weight.

After I quit I found myself substituting a food addiction for the nicotine addiction. Addictions love to "bulge out" when you have one under control. I am active in on-line smoking cessation communities so feel free to ask me for info./resources on how to get out from under Nic. O. Demon's control if you are a active nicotine addict (smoker). You can do it too!

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early December. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For the Fall we had Cardio Hoedown, World Series and Sleepathon. I hope that you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
