Hello, and welcome to my page. It''s a work in progress. I recently started with SP and there is a LOT of stuff to learn.
So, a little about me. I''m 49 and I''m about 100 lbs. overweight. With the exception of a few years, I''ve been overweight my entire life. This isn''t the heaviest I''ve been but it''s pretty darn close and I''m sick of it! I don''t want to live the last half of my life sitting in a chair eating and wishing things were different. As far as I''m concerned, the focus of a life well-lived shouldn''t be on what and when I''m going to eat again.


Member Since: 8/5/2015

Fitness Minutes: 1,666

My Goals:
Lose 103 lbs, get married before I'm 52, climb Half-Dome in the summer of 2016, walk a marathon in the fall of 2016...and not necessarily in that order.


My Program:
I don't believe dieting will produce long-term results. So I'm doing what I believe is true for me. I do not track calories, fat grams, carbohydrates, etc. Instead, I focus on eating when I am physically hungry, stopping eating before I'm physically full, and staying in the present by eating mindfully. I exercise for enjoyment rather than outcome and I've learned that "No" is a complete sentence.
