I'm a homeschooling mom with three graduated and one more left to go! I love good books, especially classics, and have an ongoing affair with all fiber related arts. Currently am practicing and learning crochet, knitting, spinning with a drop-spindle and still do occasional needle-work. Would love to learn to tat and spin on a wheel! From 2009-2010 I lost 56 pounds. Then I hit a wall, mentally, physically, and emotionally. I started to slowly regain. After a knee injury requiring surgery spelled the end of my dream of running, I stopped trying until I regained most of the weight. I kept off 20 of those 56 pounds for over three years until the summer of 2014 brought an unexpected jump in weight. I've struggled this year and am now only three pounds away from where I was before that spike. It's gotten a lot harder to lose, but I want and need to lose so much more just to be close to a healthy weight. I refuse to totally give up, so here I am still, and the tale goes on....

Fitness Minutes: 27,261

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get to a point of feeling fit and healthy regardless of the scale.

I've set a goal of 188 lb.s for the end of summer.
June- Concentrate on getting 3-5 fruits/veggies each day, exercise 3-5 days/week, and get up without snoozing.
July: 5-6 fruits/veggies each day, make snacks healthier, exercise 5-6days/week, and begin journal.
August: Continue fruits/veggies/healthy snacks, increase my daily exercise minutes by 5 minutes 3x/week.


My Program:
I started The Spark Solution June 24, and will follow it as well as my own goals above. Most are in the book anyway!



Personal Information:
Homeschooling for 16 years. Two graduated, two to go!
I'm an equal opportunity fiberist; enjoying crochet, knit, spinning, embroidery, and cross-stiching. Learning to tat and spin on a wheel instead of a spindle are on my bucket list.

    Hi again, thanks for commenting on my Beck blog. Yes, I do recommend the book and the team also (you can find the Beck Diet Solution team link from my team list if you decide you're interested). There's some good strategies in there. I hope you find some to help you as I know this process is not easy. Meanwhile, I had no idea my blog was in a SparkPeople email??? I must have missed seeing it! Bummer! emoticon

    Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I appreciate it! It IS good to meet someone else with that tradition! :) Yes, I highly recommend the logging and tracking. Even if you keep a small notebook with you and jot notes down. It really makes a difference in helping you to see how you've done and helps you to figure out where you might be off if the weight isn't moving. Best of luck to you! Have a wonderful day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
