Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss: Well, I'm pretty much at my goal weight, although I did lower the bar to see if I could get to 110 (I'm 5'1 and weighed 105 after both kids so I thought maybe I could, but I'm also 52)

Overall Goal: To stay at a low enough weight, AND be stay toned, so my clothes fit comfortably. When I started, I was at 123, and could not wear anything but sweats and baggy shorts. My goal, when I started last summer, was to be able to wear my shorts this summer, and jeans this fall, and I've reached that. BUT, if I don't get my butt back into gear I'm going to lose all I've worked so hard for.

2 Random, Fun Facts about You:
1. I'm a digital scrap booking addict
2. I can come up with jingles at the drop of a hat, but can never remember them once I've said them

Anything else you want to share: I retired in 2007, and started my one home-based business in 2008 editing & designing books and publications (I did this full-time from 1981 to 2001, and have self-taught myself everything)

Date Joined SP: July-I joined, but my initial try has been wrought with difficulty. First, I was extremely sick (still recovering) second, I reinjured my ankle. Exercise has been difficult. I am currently in physical therapy trying the correct the damage done. My goal weight is 175. I am currently at 258. I gained a few pounds due to lack of exercise.

I'm reducing my time on the computer and especially the time I spend on Spark People.
I need to be up more and moving and not checking my teams all the time!

Goal: My max weight in January was 230 lbs. When I found SP I was 205 lbs and stuck in a plateau for several weeks. Ultimately, I would like to be 109 Lbs (BMI of 21.3). I am a third of the way there.

Random facts: I am a geek and I recently discovered that I love to run. I am training to run the upcoming Race for the Cure (5K) in September and walking the Portland Half Marathon (13.3 miles) in October.

I have been married for 10 years and I have 3 children (8.5 yo, 6.5 yo, 5.25 yo). My kids are my number one fans and tell me each day how much flatter I look.

Looking for adult support in this process.

Overall Goal: To follow a healthy, nutritious diet
for the rest of my life, to lose the extra weight I have gained over the years, within reason, and keep it off. And to improve my overall health with proper exercise. I have many health issues, and take many heavy duty meds.

Overall Goal: Loose the weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle once it's gone

2 Random, Fun Facts about You:

1. Grew up on a dairy farm, so I know all about hard work.

Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss: 130 lbs./92 lbs. to lose . . . ugh.

Overall Goal: To be healthy and fit and to avoid health problems that I have been lucky to avoid so far. I also really want to be able to take pictures that I don't hate to look at.

2 Random, Fun Facts about You:
I love to read. I can spend a whole day with a good book. My tastes are eclectic, but Nora Roberts sucks me in every time. I also like a good murder mystery/psychological thriller, travel memoirs, and young adult fiction--shout out to Twilight fans!

Camping somewhere in the woods near water is my idea of a great vacation. Give me the mountains over the beach any day. Scratchy sand, sticky sunscreen and painful sunburns are not my idea of a good time.

Anything else you want to share: I have been married to my wonderful husband for 6 years. We have 2 kids ages 11 and 5. I'm transitioning from a middle school teacher to an elementary librarian this school year. I'm happy to be getting all of this great advice from SparkPeople and the people on it to make a healthier life for my family and me!
