Since my last post I fell out of the habit of exercising. I had a hysterectomy and it threw me off for a while. Now I am struggling to get back into healthy habits but I am taking it one day at a time.
I currently weigh 168 lbs

I have been exercising five days a week since my last post, yet I weigh 3 lbs more (153 lbs). That's about to change. I now have a personal trainer. I am going to change the way I eat and I am participating in the Summer 5% Challenge as a Shooting Star. I am hoping to lose more than 5% but if not then it would be nice to see a loss of 8 lbs in the next two months.

Since my last post I lost 9 lbs and I gained 19! So now I weigh 150 lbs and my goal now is to weigh 130 lbs. I am trying out intermittent fasting but I still haven't decided what times I will eat or if I will just have a rule like nothing but fruit before dinner. I am also trying to get into the habit of going to the gym at least 3 times a week.

Today I weigh 140 lbs. My goal is to weigh 125 lbs. I am hoping to achieve this by Valentine's Day 2/14/17 so that gives me approximately 4 months to lose it. I think that is reasonable. I am looking for new friends and I would love to give and receive support. I know in the past that SparkPeople was a great place for this.

I currently weigh 142 lbs. I changed my goal weight to 125 lbs. That means I need to lose 17 more lbs. That's doable. I hope to do that within 6 months. I aim to update my sparkpage for each season. I would like to blog at least once a week. On my weigh in date which will be on Fridays. Welcome to my page, thanks for joining me on this journey.


I just finished updating my spark page for the 2014 Spring 5% Challenge. I recently weighed in at 159 lb's. Hopefully by the end of the challenge I will be around 151 or lower as well as feeling healthier overall. Thank you for visiting my page. :)


The new year is fast approaching and I am very excited. I just know that 2014 will be a good year. I have updated my goals for the 5% Winter Challenge. Check them out under my profile. Thanks for visiting my page.


I couldn't handle the slimfast, not even for a week. I tried the meal plan from spark and that didn't work either. So now I am eating as healthy as I know how and aiming to fall within the caloric range suggested by SP. I am exercising a lot more, taking advantage of the videos provided by SP and also using my treadmill. I am feeling optimistic.

Today is November 5th, 2013.

I would like to go from my current weight of 168 to a healthy weight of 132. I am going to try to do this slow and steady. Today I bought some slim fast, I am going to follow that diet for a week or so for a kickstart. Starting yesterday I have been walking daily. I intend to increase the difficulty of my exercise as time goes on. I look forward to being an active member of the SparkPeople community.

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog!!! I really appreciate the encouragement you offer me!

    I am also very glad that I can inspire you in your menu-planning and meals! That's the one thing that I couldn't find when looking through blogs and stuff: people who had REASONABLE meals that were budget-friendly...time-friendly...and relatively healthy. I try my very best to do that. I do also eat very healthy lunch. My dinners are heavier in calories in comparison because I'm also feeding my hubby for dinner and men naturally need more calories.

    I'm so glad you loved the Chicken Cordon Bleu! Those are such time-savers! I'm doing two of those stuffed chicken meals this week from Barber Foods because I love them so much because they're pretty light (healthy) and they're so QUICK AND EASY!

    I'll keep making sure I post my recipes weekly for ya! :-)

    Thank you for your encouragement on my blog about being sick and back sliding. I am turning this around immediately. This community and people like you made the difference for me.
