I am 44 years old and have been struggling with my weight for about ten years now. I am not happy with the way I look and feel, carrying this extra weight around, though my husband says he doesn't mind my weight at all. I am losing the weight for me and have set the goal date of June 22nd to be down to a slimmer me!

It was this photo that made me realize just how much I had gained!

Member Since: 2/28/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,386

My Goals:
My goals are to:

Look good in summer clothing.

Be and feel healthier.

Not be self-conscious about my weight and how I look.

I would like to weigh 129 by June 22nd. This is how much I weighed just nine years ago.

My Program:
I am trying to faithfully follow SparkPeople's program of nutrition and fitness tracking. I use a recumbent bike almost every day and am trying to become interested in strength-training exercises, but it's really hard!

Personal Information:
My husband was re-mobilized with the Army Reserves to Ft. Bliss, Texas, so here we are! I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2002 and attribute much of my weight fluctuations to thyroid med doses that change all the time! We have a small acreage and have downsized to two horses, two llamas, two pot-bellied pigs, one border collie, and one crippled Tabby cat. I would like to be able to spend more time with the horses.

Other Information:
I work as a Radiology Technologist in a local hospital, with 50% of my time in surgery (which is very sedentary). I also take x-rays two days per week for a local orthopedists' office. In my spare time(note that spare time does not mean a day off), I run a part-time business processing alpaca, llama, and wool fibers. I like to spin (with a spinning wheel, not a bike) and locker hook rugs. I am a fairly new knitter and very basic crocheter. I have also taken up painting this year and really enjoy it.

    Welcome to El Paso Sparkers and SP! Great success on your goals! I am a recent member (from Jan 12th) and have really enjoyed the support and encouragement very much. As I skimmed your page and your teams, I noticed we have a few things in common and I just wanted to stop by and offer you a buddy or just someone to vent to about anything. Stop by my page and let me know how you are doing. I know we can do this. Good Luck to us!!
