Hello Everyone!! It has been a long time since I have been on SparkPeople, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to let you know some NEW stuff about me. I had some major life changes around 2013-2014, and then again in 2016. I went through a divorce from my second husband in 2013. Stayed working again, and was injured in a really bad fall the end of that year and went through injections and therapy for a while. Meanwhile I was trying to keep my faith strong, and work to support myself. Eventually the pain lessened and now as long as I don’t lift heavy items I’m fine. 😏 Around 2016 I remarried a nice fella, and am still happy with him. My own son made me a grandma four years ago. I still haven’t met the little guy, but he is adorable and I will see him someday. Being married brought along a few more grandchildren and my husband and I have started a small farm. It’s a lot of work, so you would think I am in great shape. But nooooo! I packed the weight back on. Remembering how much I enjoyed SparkPeople before I thought I’d give it a try again. So here I am- ready to begin again. Thanks for reading my brief version of the last few years.

Member Since: 1/30/2009

Fitness Minutes: 13,637

My Goals:
Currently I want to get in shape and lose enough weight to be happy and healthy. I am trying new things for fitness fun. This Winter I will be trying Cross country skiing. Woo hoo!!! I went biking several times this last Summer and plan on continuing this routine.

Starting Weight: 225 in 2009. I decided to lose 10% at a time. This has been really successful for me so far. Not having to focus on all the weight at once.

Currently 193- 9/11/2011

Next goal: 178 (this will take me out of the official "obese" category).

Then on to 160:

Final goal: 144 (this is still up for consideration. I may go down more.

135? 130?

My Program:
I am trying to walk as much as possible right now. The weather will be changing soon, so I am going to try to modify my routine this year. I have snow shoes and spikes for my shoes. I am hoping to get out more with these advantages. I have the "dreadmill" for those days when getting outside will be impossible.

Strength training is another important aspect to my program. Currently I want to get my weight out of the obese category. I am just 14 pounds away from that.

Personal Information:
I am a green lovin', tree hugging, granola. I cast my vote for God's Kingdom to take place on Earth with my own public declaration in 1982. I am confident that He will come and destroy all of the wicked people who are destroying the Earth very soon. I am married to my second husband for 4 years now. I also have two adult children from my first marriage. We have 2 dogs of questionable lineage. :)

Other Information:
I enjoy reading, crocheting, walking, hiking, biking, and (hopefully) xc skiing. We will find out this Winter.

    Hi Treva!! Keep up the hard work you're doing great. It is a long journey because even after we reach our goal it's still a journey learning to live in maintenance. I'm your "sister" from Tennessee It's always nice to find "family" on here.

    Found your page from the Skiing team. Have you cross country skiied yet? I started a couple years ago, not easy when your used to downhill skiing. But I have to say, it's a lot easier going up hill than down hill. I wouldn't think so, but holy cow, no control going down! But I'm getting a little better, not really good but better.

    Hey, nice page! We had a little snow this morning, but it warmed up just enough to melt it. Now it is just cold and windy. I need to start wearing warmer stuff!
