Spring 2016 - I'm doing the Biggest Loser Challenge, even though I'm still dealing with Lyme disease.
Here are this quarter's goals:

1. 8 cups of water each day
2. 3 freggies each day
3. Log on to Spark People each day
4. Weigh each day

Winter 2015-2016 - I can't believe its been a year since I updated my Spark Page. It has been a tough year. I had a hysterectomy in March & sinus surgery in Sept. My daughter had hip surgery in Nov. But its also ...

Winter 2015-2016 - I can't believe its been a year since I updated my Spark Page. It has been a tough year. I had a hysterectomy in March & sinus surgery in Sept. My daughter had hip surgery in Nov. But its also been a great year! My son got married in Oct & my dad is now cancer free!!
I am hoping that now I can concentrate on my goals of staying healthy & getting closer to my pre-baby weight (over 25 years ago!!)
I am excited to be part of the Biggest Loser Team - Go Panthers!! And the Clover Leaf 5% team!!

January 2015 - I'm looking forward to the New Year! I am trying to get back on track & back into a losing mode!

Update Nov 2014 - I've decided to go to maintenance mode. I have been at the same weight now for 6 months!! I am excited & proud about that, really I am. I just wish it was a lower number (don't we all). But this Nov we have 2 surgeries scheduled (son's tonsils on the 10th & hubby's hernia on the 26th) & I do not see how I can stress about trying to lose more weight. For the rest of this year, I plan to stick with my basic nutritional goals & 30-60 min of fitness each day. I plan to get back on the "losing" bandwagon after Jan 1st.

Update Fall 2014 - My 4th 5% Challenge! I am excited! I haven't lost any more weight since Spring, but I have maintained my weight within 2-3 pounds, so that is an accomplishment! I do want to lose another 5 pounds or so during the next few months (By Christmas). My goal for the Fall 5% challenge is to get to 112 pounds. I also want to build more lean muscle so I can burn more calories. My nutrition plan is going well and my fitness plan is good, I just need to put in more minutes!!

Update June 2014-
I am starting my 3rd 5% weight loss challenge. During the Spring Challenge, I lost all the weight I planned to lose! Unfortunately, I only stayed at that weight for one week (hubby's vacation started the day the challenge ended). UGH!! But at least I know I can get there! And I WILL get there again (and try hard to stay there) during the Summer Challenge! One book that I think helped in my loss was "Beck Diet Solution". I stopped half way thru the book so I can finish it (and be inspired) for the Summer Challenge. I also have some non-weight loss goals that I will work on this Summer (financial, household, home school).


Update April 2014 - I did my first 5% Challenge this Winter. I got to within 1 pound of my original goal & 3 pounds of my "official" goal! Now I am back, helping lead the GREAT team of Clover Leafs! I also read the book "Made to Crave" over the winter & it was a major stepping stone to my weight loss/fitness/wellness success! I highly recommend the book to everyone!

Update Jan 2014 - This is my 2nd time on Spark People. I got down to about 120-ish last time (2008-2009). Then I got sick with Lyme disease & a parasite disease called babeosis. After that, I had sinus surgery, and stomach issues from the medicine I took for the Lyme disease & sinus issues. I got back up to my current heaviest (135) and stayed there for awhile.
Now I'm back again & plan to get to a lower number this time & STAY THERE!! I would love to get close to my wedding weight (100 pounds), but will be super happy staying in the one-teens.

Your checking in is appreciated Anita...Leo and I are making our way, thanks. if i get around to it, i'll post a new photo, but truth be told i've all but disappeared from SparkPeople. I may return but my priorities just don't include the forum right now. Still, I appreciate being in your thoughts and am wishing you well, also.

best,
Steph

Check out some Qi Gong "exercises". Not so much a workout as it is a moving meditation. Plugs your body/mind/spirit into the energy of the universe. It might help with your energy; it certainly won't drain you.
