I have lost and gained way too many pounds and am frustrated that I can't seem to lose weight. I have tried just about everything (OA, WW, nutritionists, cleanses) and a friend suggested Spark. I always lose weight but seem to gain it back and more. Over the past 3 years, I've lost 55 lbs, and have gained back 20. I am looking to stem the tide before I gain back all the weight, especially since I want to lose even more weight after the 55 lbs.

I'm a nature photographer and love to travel, and I just know that I'll be able to walk farther, get in and out of small vehicles and boats easier, etc. with my huge pack of photo equipment if I can lose weight--that's a big motivator for me.

I also am seeing that 50 isn't too far way away and I want to live a long time (I have so much more to do!) and I want to be able to do things as I get older--especially continue to travel to wild places.

Fitness Minutes: 18,237

My Goals:
Lose 81 pounds

To walk farther and travel, while carrying all my camera gear, without getting so tired and being in pain.

My Program:
Track my food everyday.

Eliminate (or nearly eliminate) high fructose corn syrup and regular corn syrup from my food.

get back to exercising 5 days a week.

Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Massachusetts, and have lived in Colorado for 3 years now. I'm married with no kids.

I have a market research business and a new nature photography business. I love animals and have 3 cats--including a handicapped one. I'd like to get another one, but every cat we get brings my husband and I closer to 'that crazy couple with all the cats.' (especially since we don't have kids.)

Other Information:
Admittedly, sometimes it is hard to not have kids, when the world seems so geared towards families--any other 40 or 50 somethings with no kids out there?

Also, I recently started volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation place, which makes me smile every time I go there--any other animal lovers out there?
