The Easter Bunny kicked some sense into my head. I realized after I bought bag after bag of giant garish pastel marshmallow eggs on clearance at the local CVS - I was in serious trouble. I knew that I had to give up sugary treats cold turkey (oops, wrong holiday) and I haven't looked back since. My clothes keep getting looser, my energy level keeps going up, my legs keep thanking me for lightening thier load and my appetite is not so out of control. Sugar is like rat poison to my body and I am avoiding it as much as possible.

Down 80# and stuck. Kick in the pants needed. I have been doing much more activities than when I made my first entries. Learned Ballroom Dance.

Member Since: 5/26/2006

Fitness Minutes: 26,009

My Goals:
Better Health through weight loss and exercise.
Age gracefully and well with lots of energy and optimistic outlook on life.
Never stop learning and expanding my horizons.

My Program:
I am following a healthy diet that keeps me daily calorie intake between 1200-1500. At the end of May I joined a local TOPS chapter for the weekly weigh ins because I really need the accountability. I track religiously and try to get more exercise into my naturally sedentary lifestyle. Just looking for ongoing improvement.

Personal Information:
I live in small town America between Williamsport and State College PA. Little League on one end and Football on the other. One of the most beautiful hiking and biking trails is under a mile away. Pine Creek and The Susquehanna River meet in a handshake just down the road.

Other Information:
I love to cook and entertain. Lately I have been sampling many kinds of wine and I enjoy a glass most evenings. I like to vary my routine by riding my bike, walking, and working out at the local Y. Music and Books are my constant companions that I can always rely on and I adore Ballroom Dance. If I could find a new dance partner right now, I don't think I could ask any more from life.
