weight loss journey!

Hi My name is Holly and I am 49 yrs old and have been with Spark People for 3 years. What a time it has been. I never thought I could really lose 40 lbs when I started but I was going to give it a good try. Well here we are a couple of years later and I have gone past my original goal of 36 lbs and have lost a total of 40 lbs!
And maintained my 40 lb loss for the last year.
I have run in 5 different 5K's since last July. And a 10K in April of 2015
Thanks to all the wonderful ...

Thanks to all the wonderful people that I have met along the way and have cheered me on to lose the weight and to provide the support. Somehow I feel like I can't let my friends down on this site which then spurs me on to go exercise if I am thinking twice about it.
Let's keep up the great work my wonderful spark friends, together we can do anything!

I can do it!



My goal was to lose weight, and to get in great shape. I can run for the first time in my life.
Spark people has helped me lose over 40 lbs.
I plan on traveling all over the world as time permits so I want to be in the best shape possible to climb stairs and ruins no matter where we go.

My Program:
Cardio at least 6 days a week for 45 mins to an hour.
I have come to love exercise and look forward to it and really do think of it as "me time".
I will add in more strength training this year and continue to train for another 5K.
Inclines on the treadmill are great workouts so I will add them in on non run days as well as the elliptical.


Personal Information:
I live in St. Paul MN.
I have been married for over 29 years to a wonderful man that is extremely supportive no matter my size or weight. He has always loved me for me!
I have sparked him as well to watch what he eats and how much, he is not as crazy about it as I am but baby steps are great!

Other Information:
I have 2 beautiful daughters.
My oldest just graduated from college and my youngest is a sophmore in college.They are both naturally thin girls and I am so glad that they inherited their fathers metabolism! They are very supportive of me and my healthy life style change and willing to try new recipes as long as they aren't too crazy. Of course, these are girls that grew up eating octopus and squid so they are pretty brave eaters!

emoticon emoticon Sending a little humor for your weekend emoticon emoticon

In bed. It's 6:00 AM.
You close your eyes for 5 minutes..it's 7:45
At work it's 1:30.
You close you're eyes for five minutes....it's 1:31.

My friend thinks he's smart. He said onions are the only foods that make you cry.
So I threw a coconut at his face.

Only 2 things can change a woman's mood.
1. I love you.
2. 50 % discount.

Stop waiting for Prince Charming. Get up and find him.
The poor idiot maybe stuck in a tree or something.

I can't take this long distance relationship anymore.
Fridge...you're coming to my room.

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~Enjoy your Weekend!!~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope you are having a marvelous time..making many memories!! emoticon

Sometimes you have to see people as a crayon.
They may not be your favorite color
but you need them to complete the picture.
