Daisy Bell's Journey

Hi! I'm a 67 year old woman who wants to stay as healthy as possible so I can continue to enjoy my "Golden Years"! I lost 90 pounds from June 2009 to June 2011 and have been maintaining that weight loss with the help of Spark and my FitBit! I gained 10 pounds after a wonderful once in a lifetime month long trip to Europe in September 2013 and am currently slowly losing those 10 pounds.

My Goals:
I have lost around 90 pounds and had wanted to lose at least 15 more. I have become more active and have drastically reduced my portion size. I am enjoying learning to eat a more healthful "clean" diet. I'm working on my weight loss 5 pounds at a time now that I am getting closer to goal. Recently, I have decided (with my doctor's encouragment) to take a "losing break". I will continue to eat healthfully and to stay active but will try to relax from the pressure of losing the last 10 or 15 pounds. I weigh weekly and will continue that to ensure that I stay in a 5 pound range. I have recently started running and have raced 2 5Ks and one 2 mile Turkey Trot.

My Program:
I am tracking daily and using the fit bit to log my activity. I have explained a little of the program to my DH who is helping me cook. He is retired, I took a healthy cooking class in 2010 after I was laid off from my nursing position. We are making much more healthful meals . I have been becoming more active since starting Spark and am enjoying a healthier life style.

Personal Information:
I live on the Front Range of Northern Colorado and spend lots of time at our mountain cabin where I have started trekking. I am married, have 2 grown children, 2 grandchildren, a Golden Retriever and a cat.

Other Information:
I love to read, hike, swim, bike, run and spend time with the grandkids. My 2 new hobbies are healthful cooking and running. I was laid off work Sep 1, 2010 and wasn't able to find another job so I just retired on my 65th birthday 5/10/12!
