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!

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.

    Thanks for the blog love. The kids all had a good time. At the end of the morning everyone had 7 minutes to run around the grounds yelling like crazy!

    Thanks for your comment on my community feed post. I think I was going for the quick fix and read up that no/low carb is the way to do that. Unfortunately, it backfires for me. Every single time. Not sure why I keep trying. Thanks for reminding me there are other ways. I just have to find the path that works for me. I appreciate it!

    Thanks for you comments on my blog. It gave me something to think about and I decided to be pro-active and plan for lower calories in advance of parties.

    Part 4, I have a lot of tips and tricks to lose weight healthy and natural. I’m confident I can do this again. This works. My depression just got the better of me. For me it’s chronic and I’ve had it my whole life. I understand how hard it can be.
