Here I am starting again, January 2018. My cholesterol is up. I'm determined to get it down through diet and exercise.

30 minutes aerobic a day, plus the dozen or so strengthening and stretching exercises that my physical therapy taught me to do for my scoliosis and degeneration in my spine.

I'm also cutting back on alcohol and following a lower carb version of the Mediterranean diet.

Wish me luck on my upteenth time of trying to get myself back in shape.


Member Since: 7/28/2007

Fitness Minutes: 58,003

My Goals:
My new goal is to lower my cholesterol numbers without taking medication. I've given myself 6 weeks to get the numbers down (270 total right now).

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

It worked before, it can work again!


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. I'm cutting back on the alcohol too.



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.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
