The time has come for me to learn some healthy living...so, here I am :)

Member Since: 9/9/2011

Fitness Minutes: 9,160

My Goals:
To lose 70 lbs..I haven't weighed in at this weight in over 10 years!!

Revised Nov 7, 2011
To lose 90 - 100 lbs..this way I will be within the healthy range for BMI, with a bit to spare...I weighed this amount 20 years ago...funny, then it was a high weight for me...I can do it!! I know I can!!


My Program:
Being very conscientious about recording food in the food log...it helps to keep me on track...
For exercise I am walking and doing the Leslie Sanson walk at home dvd as well...have done the 3 mile so using the belt or the arm weights...it really adds to the workout..I have also been doing some sit ups and other stretches and leg excercises.
For now, this seems to be working :)

On Nov 5, 2011
Did my 1st virtual 5km walk/run
Started walk to run program

Dec 21/11
I have really progressed with my workouts. I do 65 minutes on the treadmill(rolling hills) 4-5 times/week. that's 60 min of walking and 5 minutes of cool down...then another 5 minutes of stretches...now, I am at level 7 and playing with the speed between 3.5 to 3.7....according to the machine I am burning about 600 calories(with my weight inputted in machine...don't know how accurate this is though)

I tried the walk/run 5km your way...started wk5 and my knees were gonna give out o



Personal Information:
Recently married after being a single mom for 10 years...my 3 boys are now 14, 16, and 18...and with marriage added 4 older step children and 8 grand children :)

Hubby joined me on spark on October 23, 2011

My son is working on training for his fitness test for black belt in taekwondo

It seems I am encouraging them both :)


Other Information:
So far this has been amazing...it really isn't a diet but, rather learning to adopt a healthy lifestyle...I am going to the Dr's soon and will be happy to let her know my secret to my soon success :)

    Silly me. I sent you a Sparkgoodie with a note that congratulated you on losing 12 pounds because that is what you said on one of your photos but, I see now that you have lost 24 pounds!

    You are doing an awesome job!!! I am sooo proud of you!

    Keep doing it!

    It sounds like you are off to a good start. I spend a lot of time on SP looking around and checking on my Sparkfriends. I also tinker with it while I watch t.v. instead of snacking. I figure the more time I spend focusing on what I want to achieve, the more success I will have.

    I bought The Spark on Amazon.com. It wasn't very much money. I have read 4 chapters. I haven't had time to finish it yet because I spend sooo much time on the website but, when you buy the book you get access to other information and a special Sparkteam to discuss the chapters plus you enter a code from the book to get 500 sparkpoints!

    I recommend adding a few more Sparkfriends to your list so you can have more support and interaction with others. It really helps keep me motivated.
    As you learn to navigate the website, you will find that if you point on COMMUNITY you can go down and select BLOGS and read tons of blog entries. That is a good way to find Sparkers who have similar goals or interests. You may find someone who has reached their goals and motivates you. You can tell them you would like to be Sparkfriends. Once you add each other, they will interact more with you on a regular basis because they will be able to see your activities on the FRIEND FEED which is also under the heading COMMUNITY.

    Best wishes to you!
