My name is Lisa.

Welcome to my SparkPage.

I'm from the beautiful Hudson River Valley of New York State, and I'm so tired of being overweight, under-exercised, and tired all the time. The Bottom Line: When better than now to pull out all the stops and begin crafting a new and healthy me?

To accomplish my goal of healthy weight loss and regular activity, I've embarked on a new journey....immersing myself in this wonderful site (thank you, Chris Downie!), and I've joined WeightWatchers and practice their new PointsPlus plan.

I wish you the very best in YOUR journey!!!'

Member Since: 12/31/2008

Fitness Minutes: 6,686

My Goals:
GENERALLY: lose weight in a long-term healthy manner; and eventually walk pain-free

My Program:
Taking it one day at a time, I'm a PointsPlus WeightWatcher, taking in weekly meetings each Monday night. SparkPeople accompanies me along this new journey.

Personal Information:
I'm from New York State, a 54 year old, married, mother of two. On November 29, 2010, I rejoined Weight Watchers, after a 20+ year hiatus. Back then, I found success with their program after my eldest child was born, and decided to give it another try. I'm working their new PointsPlus program, and so far I really like it.

Other Information:
With my ever present Blackberry and Asus netbook at my side, I'm a true technut. But don't get me wrong: I'm also a traditionalist and rarely without a pair of cozy socks being crafted upon a set of double pointed bamboo needles. And cooking is a passion, too. As is photography and frequent walks through art museums. Life, in all it's varietal shades, is meant to be savored!

    Glad to read your comment on the Daily Spark. I couldn't figure out why the article was bugging me until I did.

    I can't remember how I ended up on your Sparkpage, but I'm really glad I did. I was curious about the picture of the foot for the PF Team. After seeing this I did some research on PF. I found out that the tightness in my right foot and Achilles tendon may be PF and maybe this can be put in check before things get wickedly painful. Thank You!

    Hello, Lisa. Long time, no talk to! Just stopping by to say hi, and hope you are coping with the holiday season as best you can. I've already screwed up by eating cookies and too much cheese since November. Did OK on thanksgiving, cause my neighbor cooked, and I didn't like her Dressing or stuffing, whichever u call it.
    ....good time to start South beach, what with all the carb temptations you have to face, right?
