I've been a member here at SparkPeople for a long time now. I lost almost 30 pounds and then gained back a few. I still have a long way to go.

SparkPeople has changed the way I eat, plan my meals, and exercise. I can't recommend this site enough. I'm always learning new things and meeting new people who inspire me to keep going.

At 59 years, I still have a long and productive life ahead of me, and I intend to enjoy it to the fullest!

Fitness Minutes: 54,535

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose inches from my no longer expanding waistline. I have been struggling with a large belly for so long. Then over the winter I read "Wheat Belly" and decided I have one. Since January I've cut out most sugar and wheat products from my diet. I've dropped 15 pounds and my belt moved 4 notches!

In addition to eating healthy, whole foods without wheat or sugar, I am getting more exercise in my daily routine.

It is working!

My Program:
I'm cutting back on sugar, wheat and processed food, also I'm trying to work out at least an hour every morning.

Personal Information:
I spend my best days wandering around the Illinois River Valley, photographing the wildlife that I see.

Other Information:
I love to read novels by Joyce Carol Oates, Virginia Woolf, Emily and Charlotte Bronte, Kurt Vonnegut, John Irving, John Updike, and many others. I'm currently reading Peyton Place by Grace Metalious and Mysteries of Winterthurn by Joyce Carol Oates.

I also love to research genealogy for both my family and my husband's.

Jane, I read an article that said one way to determine if someone was going to live longer was whether they could get up off the ground without help. Squats help that for sure!

Hi Jane,
Welcome to Grain Brain. I am so glad you found us and joined the team on your journey to health. DH and myself are off medications for migraines, seizures, rosacea, hypertension, gerd, and gout. Almost two years of primal eating. I think grains and sugars pose serious health risks. We incidentally lost lots of weight and feel ten years younger. I joined lots of teams from everyone's page and read a lot.
Hugs new friend,
Dayle
