Up until about age 43, I had no weight problems that were not self correcting. I am dysthemic; Seasonal Affective Disorder and PTSD!

Breaking my wrist in fall of 2014 and hosing my back in early summer of 2015 had seriously limited my weight loss efforts.

"SUNNYWBL is working hard to push herself out of the dumps and back on track."

I am slowly building up my activity level into weight loss mode again. I want to start working on weight loss again through Spring, Summer and EARLY Fall. The majority of calories burned in spring and summer have come from renovating the back yard gardens.

From a low of 145 pounds in 12/2010 I am back to around 170 pounds and need to RE-LOSE the weight. Aauuggh!

I used to have silent GERD and take daily medication, but after an operation in August 2016 that has been cured and I no longer need medication.

Nov 2016 - I have lost weight and I am down to 152.


Member Since: 12/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 115,488

My Goals:
I am shedding the pounds that added up slowly and then a little faster when I drove a school bus for more than six years before I retired.
I am still shedding some of my house's accumulation of 'stuff'.
I never want to develop Type II diabetes.


My Program:
I got a GoFitWear armband and started tracking my activity and eating on July 1, 2009. Boy! no place to hide there, it tracks your activity 24/7! Later on, I could no longer get support or parts
8/20/09 down to 169!! (down 13 lb!)
8/30/09 down to 167 (down 15 lb)
12/17/09 down to 155 (32 Lb)
7/4/10 down below 151. (36 lbs) My low was 146.
I had to give up Curves on 12/31/2010 due to budget problems.
I mostly power walk or the Gazelle Edge for my cardio. I DO enjoy Strength Training.
I keep my sodium at or below 1600mg.
I'm sorry to say I have regained some of the weight I'd lost. 1/6/13



Personal Information:
I've achieved 78 years in Aug, 2017, am formerly married and now live in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. WBL is a 'first ring ' suburb of St.Paul, the state capital of Minnesota.
I have two great- grandchildren who both live in Washington state.
I am a gardener. I have no grass in my front yard, just flowers and shrubs! I also grow blueberries.Over the last two years I have removed all of the red and yellow raspberries, currents, gooseberries, and blackberries to eliminate the time used to maintain them.
I am an avid reader. I enjoy Science fiction, Alternative History, Crime and Mystery books.
I love to use my Kindle Fire HD to read.

    Thank you for the Goodie. I'm doing well and check in from time to time. Just returned from 3 weeks in Europe including seeking my roots in Lithuania. Still very active in a local charity. The need grows day by day and I am very grateful for my life. As the saying goes "there but for fortune..." Take care.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? 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 June. 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 Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer 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.
