UPDATED: September 13, 2014
My plan for the Fall 5% Challenge:
My 5%=6.875 pounds to lose by 11/15/14
In order to reach that goal, I have to lose about .85 pounds/week, or 3008 calories less /week through diet and exercise.
I will do the elliptical 20 minutes twice weekly
Weekly cycle class (60minutes)
Walk 5 miles (100 minutes) minimum per week.
Reduce caloric intake by 300/day
Pretty tangible, right? I think so.

Personal Information:
I am 49 years old, in good health. I started struggling with weight when I was in 9th grade. As a young woman, my weight went up and down for years. I finally found my zone when I became a young wife. After two children, my weight always settled at the same place it was before the babies, 133lbs. Over the past 20 years, things have remained very consistent with only the 'winter 7' playing a part. Typically, by the time the roads were clear enough to walk a decent clip, I was out and about, and my winter 7 was history.
Now that I am a 'woman of a certain age', things don't work quite the way they used to. In the last year, I finalized my divorce (after 23 years of marriage), my boys (21 and 19) have left the nest, and I lost my daddy (my hero). I am trying to learn how to take care of myself, now that I don't have my dad and the boys to fuss over.
I adopted a 4 year old golden retriever. Little did I know he rescued me.

Other Information:
I am a knitter, baker, reader, New York Mets fan, Auburn University football fan, and newly converted and hopeless dog lover.
I am here because I want to learn how to take care of myself. I want to be able to lose my winter 7 before summer (lol!) and I want to be the best woman I can be!
