Hi! My name is Sheri. I am very happily married to my best friend. We have 2 older children and a beautiful grandson. I am currently a full time homemaker after working in education and social work.

I have regained the weight I lost five years ago.πŸ˜• I have added hypothyroidism, and high cholesterol to my list of health problems. I find myself binge eating empty calories for comfort, reward and relaxation. I have continued to exercise daily, which is probably the only thing keeping my blood pressure in check!

I know I need help in order to reach my goal of reaching and maintaining a healthy BMI. I'm glad Spark People is here to help me reach my goals!

Member Since: 7/25/2009

Fitness Minutes: 84,376

My Goals:
I'd like to reach and maintain a healthy BMI.

I'd like to make time for myself.

I am seeking balance in my lifestyle, body and my spirit. Binge eating for comfort and recreation does not have a place here! I want to be at peace with myself.

My Program:
Use the nutrition tracker and stay within my range for the day.

I walk daily for 20-60 minutes.

I do other cardio activities, most days such as cycling, DVD's such as Ellen Barrett, Leslie Sansone Walking, Kathy Smith. I do strength training with weights 3 days a week for 20 minutes or more. I also like to do yoga for flexibility and strength several days a week, like Sara Ivanhoe or Yoga Journal, or Yoga Zone.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
My favorite movie is the Wizard of Oz.

I think I love Dorothy`s courage, curiosity and big heart!

    So glad you checked in this morning! I need to start tracking again, too. It really does help me. I can get on track for a week or 2 without it, then the bad habits infiltrate their way back in! Thanks for caring! Here's to both of us doing better with our eating.
    Happy day!

    How are you, Sheri? Good to see you continue to do well with your fitness minutes! I'm feeling better about mine, now, too. Still working on the eating part. That is such a challenge for me daily, but I continue to be mindful of all that I've learned. It's coming along! Work in progress....

    Have a great day!

    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
