Today, Jan. 11th, I finally got around to setting some simple fitness goals. Time to get serious about taking this weight off, right? Right!

Member Since: 1/2/2014

Fitness Minutes: 180

My Goals:
After losing 130 pounds in 2007 and keeping it off for over 5 years, I quit smoking on Dec. 7, 2012 and gained 35 pounds. I am determined to lose that weight and get back to the weight I was. I have lost some of the weight already, but have a way to go and am smart enough to know that I need support to do this. SparkPeople is a great site for the kind of support I can give and get.

My Program:
I have spent my life on one diet or another so I know that I don't need a diet. I need to get back to a proper lifestyle complete with proper exercise. My exercise will mostly consist of walking and my treadmill just because I know me and that is what I will actually do.

Personal Information:
My name and email address will be available to anyone who I become friends with. I am not trying to be mysterious or hateful. I have just belonged to message boards before and it is easier to be selective in who you choose to let into your life. I am generally a very open and friendly person so please, don't be put off by my caution.

Other Information:
I am a mother of 4 grown children and 4 almost grown grandchildren. Married for 46 years and a practicing Catholic. I am a terrific cook and very knowledgeable about converting high fat recipes into healthy ones. I love gardening, quilting and home remodeling (yes, I wield power tools!). I guess that is enough for now. I hope to make some friends here who can help me navigate this very interesting site.

    Just a quick note to tell you that you can do this, and it is never to late to start. I was 66 years old before I really got serious. Got to my Weight Watcher Goal and have maintained. Encouragement is so important, and keeping track of Food and Fitness!! emoticon

    Thank you for the rainbow. I love rainbows. Have a wonderful day. Today is laundry day for me. I went to Curves this am and did my 30 minute circuit with a friend of mine. Then we went for coffee like we usually do. She also gave m 6 pr. of beautiful slacks to try on. They are like new....she just got smaller and the 8's and 10's are too big for her.She wears a 6 now. Hope it'll be my lucky day to fit into the 8's. I already wear 10 P in some slacks.

    Thanks for the friend add. Looking forward to learning more about you too as time goes on.
    Your Spark friend,
