New intro: I've been a healthy, fit weight, I've been morbidly obese, and everything in between. In high school, I was thin and athletic. Through my 20's and 30's I became severely overweight, hitting an all time high of 337 pounds at age 38. I'm currently back down to size 8, from size 32, at age 43. I'm nearing my goal size (6) and quite nervous about switching from my weight loss program to a program of maintenance, as I've not ever, in my adult life, maintained my weight!

SparkPeople has been a fantastic tool in helping me keep my focus and staying motivated. I'm hopeful that, with the help of SP, I'll manage maintenance this time around!

Fitness Minutes: 2,693

My Goals:
My general goal is to find and keep better health.

I've been setting mini goals all along. I've met them all so far. My current goal is my "eventual" goal...

My "eventual" goal is to be a size 6. I'm at 8 now.

My Program:
My program has changed...I'm still vegetarian, but I'm currently eating no sugar, no alcohol and not eating after 7 PM. I don't eat rice or pasta or bread for right now. I eat lots and lots of dark leafy greens and fresh vegetables, beans, soy, and lots of water.

For exercise, I'm doing all sorts of things! Classes at my gym (zumba, kick & sculpt, cardio & sculpt, circuit training, swimming) Switching it up and keeping my body guessing! At least an hour of something 5-6 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in upstate New York with my husband of almost 25 years, and have my whole life. I've not traveled much, but would like to someday.

We have two talented artist young adult children, who we are very proud of.

Other Information:
I have found supportive people here, who spur me on to reach and maintain my goals...and I hope I can do that for some of you, as well!

    Hi, Kim! Thanks for checking in last month--so good to see your message now that I'm finally catching up. Thank you for the ongoing support, despite my own inconsistent sparking! Look at you go--you've made such great progress and you look amazing! I resolve to be more active and in touch on Spark this new year--let's make 2011 the best year yet and be extra good to ourselves!

    Happy holidays!
