March 2018

I started my journey to Better Health 6 years ago on SparkPeople. My weight came off at a steady pace. As I lost, I became more mobile and was able to do so much more. I lost over 150 pounds in 2.5 years. I came within sight of my ultimate goal weight, but I slacked off a little. With each holiday and family event I gained. My own fault as I love to bake! I never left SparkPeople. I logged my food nearly everyday, even the major over indulgences! I still exercised daily. I am now 65 pounds away from my ultimate goal. I have taken a good look at my habits and have made improvements and will succeed in getting the weight off. It won't be as "easy" now since I already exercise daily and eat clean healthy foods. It will happen 1 pound at a time, but it will happen!

Fitness Minutes: 177,387

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to have a "normal" BMI with a little wiggle room!





My Program:
I want to consistently hit 5 miles or more on my FitBit daily
I want to eat between 1350 and 1650 calories daily
I want to eat more fruits and vegetables each day.
I want to continue drinking 64 ounces daily.





Personal Information:
I'm 52 years old. I been married to a great guy for 32 years and we have 2 adult children who live in the area. I was a stay at home mom for my kids and that turned into a full time caregiver to a couple elderly family members. Now my parents have moved back to the area so I can take on that roll again if need be. So needless to say, family first is my "motto" and my way of life.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
