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

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 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 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 :)

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, 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)

    Thank you for visiting my Sparkpage and for the sweet comment.

    Welcome to Sparkpeople! I joined 5 months ago and have lost over 50 pounds so far. I love this website and the support I receive from its members.

    Everything you need to lose weight and get fit is right here. I started by tracking my food and drinking 8 glasses of water everyday. I also spend as much time as possible on the website reading blogs and interacting with others. That is my support system.

    My motto is "progress not perfection" and I focus on one day at a time. This is a lifestyle for me and that is why it is working.

    Best wishes to you on your journey!
