Hi!! I'm 54 years old and live in a rural community on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I have been a member on SparkPeople since 2009.
I have been obese my entire life but I'm stepping out of that lifestyle to a better one. At my highest weight I was 422 pounds. I am currently 317 pounds. I have 167 pounds to get to 150 pounds - my goal weight. However, my primary focus is to get under 300 pounds. When I make that transition...I will be the lowest weight I have been in over 30 years. I can't wait!!!
The most challenging aspect of my healthy lifestyle change is working nights 4 times a week. Eating and exercising those four days can be very stressful at best!!!
My favorite cardio exercise is Zumba which I do for about an hour three times a week. You can find me in the gym either at the stationary bike, treadmill, or on the arc trainer. I do strength training from 2 to 3 times a week.
If I'm not in the gym, I am active in my church. I enjoy reading mysteries, sci fi and historical fiction. I enjoy needlework especially crocheting and needlepoint.
