Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 210 in September 2011. I wanted to lose 60 in a year. Well I lost 20 pounds by the end of 2011 with adding exercising and eating more fruit and vegetables and eating way less fast food and junk food.

I am married to a very supportive man who is also losing weight and with his help I think I can do this. I love to cook and he inspires me to make low cal meals.

I challenge myself to make better choices to become stronger healthier and a better person. I find that pushing myself to be healthier every day is practical. I use steaks to motivate myself and count my calories.

In 2012 I started to slow down with my weight loss, I was not eating right. I was exercising more but ate about the same as when I was not trying to lose. So I would try to stay on track and some days I did but some days I went over my daily allotment. I lost 16 pounds in 2013.

September 19, 2014 marks 3 years with Spark People I have lost 37 pounds so far and learned to love exercising. I walk most every day and do strength training 3 times a week.

Jan. 2015 I gained and lost and gained and lost through out 2014 but was able to keep off an extra 5 pounds. I am going to do better this year by staying in my calorie range most every day. I am making daily changes in how and what I eat. Making healthier choices in what I eat and how much exercise I do.

March 15, 2015 have lost over 43 pounds since starting on Spark People.

4/8
A finish line is jus the beginning
Knowing hat you want is a giant step towards getting it we can do it
Our journey is like a race we need to get started before we can set the race

4/7 Change can be beautiful trust the process you can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf
Think big thoughts But relish the small pleasures


Worry is the dark room which negatives are developed.
Love your self and everything will fall into place.

4/6
Make one healthy choice and watch them add up
Doing your best means never giving up
Doing nothing is easy that is why so many people it
IF you are going to doubt something doubt your limits you can do it
