Hello! My name is Lori and I'm a 48 year old stay at home mom to 3 teenagers and 9 critters. I'm in my 7th year on Sparkpeople. In these 7 years, I have been chubby and I have been thin and I have been everything in-between. I lose and I gain. I gain and I lose. I started 2016 about 16 pounds over my goal weight and am currently working on whittling that down. Again. (I lost 20 lbs here once before).
I really love Sparkpeople for the motivation and tools offered here. I'm aiming to be the healthiest and fittest mom I can be. I want to reach my goal weight and stay consistent at maintaining. I am dedicated to being healthy and fit!

In September 2009 I quit smoking after 23 years, joined Sparkpeople and started running! I've been running ever since. I have run a handful of 5K's, 2 10K's, 2 Half Marathons and have run a leg in the Beach 2 Bay Marathon Relay 7 times and counting. I do struggle at running, but I just keep on going! I also do a lot of walking. I try to walk at least 3 miles on the days I don't run.
I go through phases with ST. I want to become more consistent and learn to love it more.

This year, I have made logging my food a daily habit and I log everything I eat and drink. It really helps to hold myself accountable.

    Hi Lori! So glad to see you back :) I'm doing good. I'm getting back into running a bit more. I am going to run the Las Vegas 1/2 in November, so I have been training a little bit more than I have been. I'm not a strict whole30 right now, but I do want to do one again very soon! I'm on and off Spark a lot myself. Just only so many hours in the day! I hope you are doing well. So cool your hubby is here with you, too! Take care!
