I titled this page after a famous quote by Winston Churchill because it seemed to really sum up my life right now. This was my page introduction back in 2007; "Hi! My name is Ann. I have dieted away and maintained a better than 55 pound weight loss. I still have a few pounds to go, but I am not stressing it. My goal to is be healthy. "--------------------------------
That was my initial entry back in 2007 when I first joined Sparkpeople. Now I have gained 58 pounds back and am making 60 pounds my goal now. Sometimes life gets in your way of maintaining a longstanding weight loss, but the greatest thing is that you CAN get back up on that horse and ride it to your goal again. That is what this is about- it is not a new journey- You don't start over when you fail- You just keep getting up and keep trucking on.
For that reason I chose to leave my previous before pictures up- they are inspiration of what I can do when I set my mind to it.

Fitness Minutes: 30

My Goals:
I wanted to lose about 60 pounds, make consistent healthy food choices, and become much more active.

My Program:
I am eating as much raw and/or unprocessed food as possible, minimal bread products unless they are sprouted grains, but I am not a vegetarian-I am choosing local meat from area farmers rather than store bought. I am trying to stay away from chemicals in food.
I am walking the most to get my fitness back up, we just got a Planet Fitness in our area, so I joined, and I have the DDP Yoga program to start.

Personal Information:
I am from Morgantown WV, Health issues led me to an early retirement. I enjoy doing arts and crafts and have recently picked up a new love of Zentangle- meditative doodle art. I love to read, sew, and spend time with family. I love my cat. I have planned one day to hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail.

Other Information:
I love reading Philippa Gregory historical fiction books and love learning about the War of the Roses and Tudor eras.
I also like Sophia Kinsella (AKA Madelaine Wickman for her zaney Shopaholic series of books, and Jennifer Weiner, and Meg Cabot (I know I am a little old for her-but what can I say? I love her!)
