In 2009, I lost sixteen pounds and became the fittest I had been in ten years by using Spark People as a motivator. I gradually drifted away from Spark People and put back all of those pounds. In 2010, I had a medical scare that made me realize that I need to better care for myself. Unfortunately, I backslid again. Much of my backsliding is due to allowing negativity into my life. Now I realize that the only way I can stay with a healthy diet and exercise program is through Spark People. Spark People is the best tool I have seen for keeping me accountable.

Member Since: 1/10/2008

Fitness Minutes: 25,102

My Goals:
1) To eat healthier
2) Lose 14 pounds
3) To stay with a walking program of fifteen miles a week.
4) Strive for a minimum of 7,500 steps a day


My Program:
1) Keeping a log of what I eat
2) Walking 3 miles at a brisk pace five times a week.
3) Wearing a pedometer to track the number of steps per day



Personal Information:
I am sixty six years old and a retired city planner.

In my late thirties and throughout my forties, I was a competitive runner with some good success in age group competition at the local level.

However chronic and repetitive bouts with plantar fascitis put an end to my running. Since running was more a competitive thing than for fitness, I began neglecting my overall fitness when I could no longer run.

Over the years, I continued to gain weight (some of which was needed), but totally lost even the most rudimentary level of fitness. During the last several years, my weight started rapidly heading in the wrong direction.

Now, I have learned to accept that I can use walking as a way to gain fitness without having to use competition as a motivation for getting into shape.



Other Information:
I enjoy gardening and bird watching. I maintain four seed feeders and during hummingbird season, have a hummingbird feeder.

I occasionally paint in oils and enjoy sewing.

    ~~~Live & Laugh~~~
    Laugh your heart out,
    Dance in the rain.
    Cherish the moment
    Ignore the pain.
    Live, laugh, love,
    Forgive & forget
    Life's too short to be
    Living with regrets.

    Thought I'd stop by with a smile emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    And brighten up your Wednesday for awhile. emoticon emoticon emoticon
    ~~~HAPPY WEDNESDAY~~~
