I'm just going to make a list of the places I want to hike or backpack. I think that is more motivation for me than just about anything else. * indicates meeting the goal to hike at that location. --Isle Royale National Park * --Grand Canyon National Park * --Big Bend National Park * --Redwood National Park --Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park --Zion National Park, Angels Landing --Shenandoah National Park * --Pacific Crest Trail --Roan Mountain —West Virginia wilderness areas --Provincial\National Parks around Lake Superior --Rocky Mountain National Park --North Cascades National Park --Acadia National Park --Denali National Park —Bruce Peninsula, ON —NCT, Eastern Upper Peninsula of MI I have thyroid issues and have packed on pounds from that issue. I also have high cholesterol and high triglycerides and high blood pressure. Even though I know that weight loss can solve/help all of these things, I have not had the determination to do it. Seems everything has to line up just right for me to move ahead with weight loss.

My Goals:
Lose at least 80 pounds. 100 pounds lost would put me right at my ideal weight, but even as a teenager, I didn't weigh that amount (120). Better results on blood tests. Better endurance for uphill hikes.


My Program:
Walking
Hiking
At-home strength training and plank challenge
Gardening (pulling invasives at the local nature center, planting gardens at the nature center, etc.)



Personal Information:
I'm from Michigan!! My favorite place on the earth is 12 Mile Beach in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
