I stumbled upon this site when I was looking for Diet/Fitness/Nutrition Information. I watched a video about it and decided to join. I plan to spend some time looking around and want to begin some kind of diet/fitness/weight loss plan this week ... probably the day after Labor Day (2008).

I have set/reset my goals here several times - I have had successes and setbacks ... but this site seems to keep me 'on track' ~ even if I 'stray' every now and again. I have actually lost 25 lbs. and as a result, reached my goal - but, slowly, over time I got 'lazy' and gained it all back! I find that as you get older, it is more difficult to lose - so, it is nobody's fault but my own, but this will take some work!

In 2018 I celebrated my 10 Year 'SparkVersary'. After all this time, I still discover new things and 'meet' new SparkFriends. I'm a constant 'work in progress' ... with the help of SparkPeople, of course!!!

My Goals:
I started here in September, 2008 with a goal to get into shape and lose 24-25 lbs. I've achieved my goal in the past, but didn't pay attention all the time and I need to get back to and re-focus on that first goal (getting there and sticking to it).

My main goal is to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Healthy, sensible eating and exercise is exactly what is needed!

12/31/18: Additional Incentive: DD got ENGAGED!!! Its still early in the process, but the wedding will be in the Summer, 2020. Gotta look good in those 'Mother of the Bride' pictures! I just HAVE to Keep Sparking!!!


My Program:
In 2010, I found the 5% Challenges. These Challenges, along with some common sense eating/exercising are some of the things that have helped me most on this journey to create a 'healthier' me.

As an additional resource, (and a present to myself), I signed up for SparkCoach and began that feature on 1/1/17.

I'm an active member of the 5% Challenges, in addition, I serve as a Co-Leader of the Challenges.

For the 2019 Fall 5% Challenge, I plan to exercise a minimum of 3 times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes. Also, when the weather allows, I plan to get out and walk during my lunch breaks. I plan to follow a 'Keto Lifestyle' with some allowances for seasonal fruits and vegetables ('Lazy Keto', if you will). I will steer clear of carbs and sugars. I'm not 100% sure about staying with 'Keto' but until I find something that works better (for me), I will continue to follow Keto guidelines.

    Hi, we're trying to get our class team moving again. I saw your name on the fitness minutes goal. Would you be interested in getting involved with the team again? If so, please go by the message boards and post on the "roll call" post. I hope you'll join us! It would be nice to have the team together for our one year anniversary!
    Have a great day!
