I was losing weight until I quit smoking (back in 2007). I put it all and an extra 24 pounds on. I need to re-lose those, plus the 10 I hadn't lost yet to get to my goal.

I gave up all soda in 2013 and am working on going Whole Food Plant Based.

Update 2019: Down to the low-mid 140s, bouncing a bit. Still doing the 5% Challenges since the first one worked so well. I just need to get back on track and actually DO what I say I'm going to do.

Update 2018: Joined my first 5% Challenge to see if I can get these last 10 pounds off,

Update 2017: Have succeeded in going WFPB with very few slips. Down to the low 150s, but need to lose a bit more as I am only 5' 4.5" tall.

Fitness Minutes: 150,163

My Goals:
I want go get down to 130 pounds.
I want to learn how to meal plan - I get by so far by not keeping stuff I shouldn't eat in the house, but I don't always eat the best proportions of grains and beans to veggies and fruits - and nuts can be dangerous.


My Program:
Have been eating Whole Food Plant Based 99% of the time. I have been reading about Intermittent Fasting and tried the eRTF (early Time Restricted Feeding) version where I ingest all my calories between 5:30 AM and noon. That stopped being workable when work got too busy to eat all 3 meals at work, so I am going to try doing the other end - no eating before noon and done by 6 pm.



Personal Information:
I am a voracious reader who enjoys Ren Faires and science fiction / fantasy conventions. I have 2 long-haired cats and one son who is ASD.


Other Information:

    Kerry,
    The "Glow Getter Award" is an award you get for getting 10,000 steps a day (or more). But only if you use the SPAT (Spark People Activity Tracker). The other trackers, like Fitbit, don't give that to you.

    Hey Kerry, how's it going? I've been doing better on my steps lately, but for some reason, not eating like I should at every meal. Hopefully some day I'll get this under control.
    Thanks for the friend add, I have added you as well. Together we will reach our goals!


    Hope you've had a great week. Enjoy your weekend!!!
