Hello! This is a time for new beginnings : I just recently moved to Tennessee from the Chicago area, this is the first time I have lived away from my grown up kids (that is very hard for me because my kids and I are very close), and it's my first time living alone. Well, my best friend Honey (see picture left) and I live alone :- )

I am making a serious effort to get healthy. Diabetes runs heavily in my family and I feel that I must bring my weight down so I lower my risk of getting it. I also want to get healthy because I miss having energy and feeling good about my body. There's no time like the present... I love SP and I hope to make some friends here! Good luck to all of you!

~ Karen

My Goals:
Long term goal:
To loose 110 lbs. in (12 1/2 months) 11/1/2008

To not give up when I hit that dreaded plateau!

To make friends here at SP and help to motivate each other


My Program:
The recommended plan by SP so far:

30 min walking 3 days a week

Strength Training 3 days a week



Personal Information:
I live in West Tennessee out in the country (after living near Chicago for the past 12 yrs. that's quite a culture shock!), however I used to live in middle TN prior to that. I have to re-aquiant myself with the south again. But I am lovin it out here- it's peaceful and beautiful. I have a few relatives out here but for the most part don't know anyone, yet.

I like to read books and Health magazines, get on the computer some, and most of all play with my dog, who is my best friend, Honey.

Oh! And talk to my kids as often as possible!!!


Other Information:
What I miss from Chicago:

The large selections of Stores to shop from

Everything you want and need withing 5-10 miles

Going to the White Sox Games

The museums, Brookfield Zoo, The Magnificient Mile, Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, the theater

The Greatest pizza in the world, Italian Sausage sandwhiches, beer brats, Chicago style hot dogs, Italian Beef sandwhiches

What I won't miss: The Frigid cold winters! I really have a hard time during winters and dreary days.

    Hey there! I am so glad that you figured this out...Nice to meet you Karen from Florida!

    I think that you could email SP_COACH_DEAN and ask him about deleting your other profile...that would make the most sense!
