Hi, I'm a Native American woman with lots of fat to lose.

I've been with SparkPeople since March 2009.

I need to learn a consistant exercise habit. Not something I'm good at, yet. Because of my weight there isn't much I can do in the way of exercise except walk or ride my stationary bike. When I've lost enough fat, I will get a new road bike as one of my rewards. I've even found the one I want.

My Husband was dignosed with colon cancer in 2007 and I stopped working to take care of him. We finished treatment now. He was told October 2009 he is officialy in remission, Now the five(5) year wait for cured starts! In October 2013 the oncologist gave us the good news, My Hubby is now cancer free.

Since I've been home I've put the time to good use I re- learned to knit. I've also learned to weave baskets.

I took a vo-tech knitting class in September 2009 to learn to knit mittens. It was fun and I have a nice pair of mittens. I also got a Christmas stocking pattern and I've made one. This teaches the same technic as knitting socks, only with larger needles and yarn. I have completed one.

Since taking that class I've been really enjoying knitting. I take a project with me everywhere I go. I've learned if my hands are full of something to do; I don't eat. Besides you have to have clean hands to keep the yarn clean.

Member Since: 3/10/2009

My Goals:
My current short term goal: lose 10% of my current body weight by May 16, 2018.

I will continue to practice the sound principles I have learned using SparkPeople's program for diabetes.

I will track my food and exercise.

My Program:
I will be using the SparkPeople D Program.

I will use walking DVDs and ride my Stationay Bike.

Personal Information:
I'm Liligrac; a Northern Californian transplanted to Central Oklahoma in 1982. Married 38 years; to the same man. He passed away October 06, 2018 from cancer; his fourth round.

Life got in the way of my fat loss goals, but I've come back to the program that works. I lost 97lbs since July 17, 2009 using this program. It's the best I've done on any program to date. I believe I will stay with it.

Other Information:
I'm a knitter, crocheter and basket weaver. Have learned to knit sweaters in my size {2/3X (getting smaller)} Knitting in the round w/raglin sleeves knitted (no sewing) & socks.

I have completed a baby blankets, mittens, an afghan, dish clothes, christmas stocking, working on another (socks come in pairs) . I've knitted the socks I wanted to! A couple of pairs now.

I made a sweater for a friend when I finished the Sweater Work Shop Book. and now am knitting a cardigan for me.

I've completed 3 child sweaters and am working on a cardigan for my sept-daughter. I have completed this sweater and she wears it when its cold.

    Here I am again. I'm back again. I have lost fat since I have been gone. I'm down more than when I left. emoticon

    Here I am starting again with SparkPeople. I've been away for awhile. Fortunately the things I learned here stayed with me even though I was gone. By using the principles I learned at SparkPeople I continued to lose fat; and I've kept it off!

    Now that I have more free time again I have come back to continue the program I know works!!
