Hi everyone, name is Terriber. After struggling for years with Weight Watchers I decided to take on myself by the reins (doesn't make sense to be a life-time PAYING overweight member if it's not working for me). I found myself at my work desk all day M -F and then with other, some self-imposed, obligations during most of the remaining time. Being an all or nothing person, I went to the gym and got a trainer. I cannot imagine the challenge he feels each time I walk into his 24 Hr facility, poor guy. But he cannot imagine the fear I walk in with (can I do this??) and the exhileration I walk out with (yesss!!!!). Now all this is good, but the best part is that little phone call to my son from his cousin who said he should visit Sparkpeople.com and he passed that suggestion on to me. SP is just what I needed to put my plans and desires to work. I am keeping track of everything. I am seeing myself more clearly. The SP team I have joined is, frankly, less than luke-warm. I am kicking around the question of whether it is the right one for me...hmmm. I have a goal, a trip to Hawaii in August. Anyway, thanks for visiting and I wish you all the best. We can do it!

My Goals:
I want to be healthy and fit so I can pursue and share with my family the things that are important to me--and them. There are many windows that are open but I can only jump through some of them. I want to make good choices to be happy and at peace in life.

My Program:
I workout with a trainer twice a week at 24 Hr Fitness. Thang is a great guy and is so smart and patient! I also do cardio everyday if I can, from eliptical to rowing to bike riding on the Santa Ana River Trail in Orange County, CA. I am faithfully inputting everything I eat on SP, it's keeps me honest. Working so far.

Personal Information:
I live in sunny CA! We have no excuse for not getting out there and enjoying the sun and breeze! I work for a public organization, a lot of stress these days with the tight budget, needs of the public, etc.

Other Information:
I urge everyone to consider their options at all moments. We have the choice to do this or do that at any given time so make the right choice. Looking back will be a good experience if you do and you will always have the approval of your creator too which will be the most important accolade of all.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. A sister who stayed with me while she attended pioneer school last year encourage me to get it. I just did not know if I could. But I passed the fitness test, except could not do a chin up. But I am really excited. My husband and I are really enjoying this together! Give it a try.
