Thank you for visiting my SparkPage! I discovered SparkPeople in early January 2019 after a short search for a support group to help me achieve a 110-pound weight loss goal. Four months before this, my husband and I started doing CICO (calories-in, calories-out) to get a handle on our expanding waistlines. Being 67 years old and diabetic and with many obesity-related health issues, I'd pretty much given up the idea of ever being at a healthy weight or ever having a healthy body. Because of SparkPeople and CICO, these goals have become doable and reachable. I love the articles and the team-communities on this website and the recipes, which are so very good. So, my motto is to keep on Sparking and we'll all get there!

Fitness Minutes: 25,861

My Goals:
My short-term goal is to get under 200 lbs. and whenever that happens is OK by me. Then on to reaching 191 pounds which will mean I'm no longer considered to be "obese". My longer-term goal is to reach my goal weight by early October of 2021. It doesn't matter to me if that date is overrun. I'll just keep on doing what I need to in order to get healthy and reach a healthy weight. Once at goal, then comes maintenance; the hardest part of the weight loss journey. I anticipate that I'll be actively maintaining for the rest of my life.


My Program:
Charting all food, calories, protein, exercise, water intake in a Diet Minder food journal daily. Daily calorie cap is variable, depending on my activity level. Protein intake over 90 grams daily. At least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily. Low-GI carbohydrates preferred. Over 64 ounces of water or other clear, non-caloric beverages daily. Weekly, 180 minutes of moderate exercise. I take Sundays off, but eat conservatively and still strive for 64 ounces of water on that day.



Personal Information:
I love Jesus. I'm a devoted wife of 40 years, mother of 2 grown daughters and grandmother with 3 wonderful grandsons. I'm a retired registered health information technologist with a keen interest in all things medical. I love to attend my church, garden, exercise, sing, think, read, do sudoku and crossword puzzles, sew, cook, bake, eat and just plain enjoy life very much. I've had numerous health challenges and setbacks with all of them related to obesity. It's time to change this picture!


Other Information:
I love the encouragement and comradery of a group support system and am finding that here on SparkPeople.

    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    emoticon Hi, this is Trekpurrson, aka Robyn, checking in with you! I am still TREKKIN! emoticon Thanks so much for asking! I am determined to get to Onderland, by the end of this May 2019. emoticon At 203, I am SO CLOSE to this first goal! then, my next goal is to get below 194, safe from sleep apnea weight, then I am trying to get to 175 or lower, before the end of this year! Using My Fitness Pal on my phone to track all my food intake, water intake, and steps/ distance walked every day so far this year....Like you, I am realizing these will have to be habits for the rest of my life, because I intend to keep OFF the pounds that I lose, for the rest of my life, for my health. Have a great SPARKLING week! I am rooting for us both! emoticon Hugs, Robyn emoticon
