I was losing weight until I quit smoking (back in 2007). I put it all and an extra 24 pounds on. I need to re-lose those, plus the 10 I hadn't lost yet to get to my goal.

I gave up all soda in 2013 and am working on going Whole Food Plant Based.

2020 Update: Backslid up to the mid 150s. Time to get back on the horse and eat on plan. Need to start tracking again to be accountable.

Update 2019: Down to the low-mid 140s, bouncing a bit. Still doing the 5% Challenges since the first one worked so well. I just need to get back on track and actually DO what I say I'm going to do.

Update 2018: Joined my first 5% Challenge to see if I can get these last 10 pounds off,

Update 2017: Have succeeded in going WFPB with very few slips. Down to the low 150s, but need to lose a bit more as I am only 5' 4.5" tall.

My Goals:
I want go get down to 130 pounds.
I want to learn how to meal plan - I get by so far by not keeping stuff I shouldn't eat in the house, but I don't always eat the best proportions of grains and beans to veggies and fruits - and nuts can be dangerous.


My Program:
Have been eating Whole Food Plant Based 99% of the time. I have been reading about Intermittent Fasting and tried the eRTF (early Time Restricted Feeding) version where I ingest all my calories between 5:30 AM and noon. That stopped being workable when work got too busy to eat all 3 meals at work, so I am going to try doing the other end - no eating before noon and done by 6 pm.



Personal Information:
I am a voracious reader who enjoys Ren Faires and science fiction / fantasy conventions. I have 2 long-haired cats and one son who is ASD.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Getting lots of rain. Husband’s workplace is sending everyone home early. He’ll want to bring in anything loose that could be a hazard in the wind. We’ll be fine barring flukes; I’m more concerned about Floridians in low lying places.

    I apologize for not being on SP to interact with you for awhile.
    I have been seeing many doctors and sugeons, and Im having a total knee replacement on my left knee on November 23rd. After it is ok to go ahead with the right knee, Ill be having a total knee replacement on that one too.
    I also have to have surgery on my spine. I have degenerative disk disease so, Im in pain all over ALL the time. It has made me not want to socialize very much. But I wanted you to know you are important to me and why I havent been on SP. Have a beauitiful day my dear friend.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
