My name is Karen, I'm 67 years old, and I'm DONE being the fat girl! I started my Spark journey in Oct. 2010 at 230 lbs and lost 80 lbs down to 150. I'm at 160 now and working to get rid of those 10 lbs and a few more. My ultimate goal is 135-140.

Starting in January, I am participating in the Winter 2017 5% Challenge as a member of the Casual Travelers team! My goal is to lose 8 lbs over the 8 weeks.

Dieting doesn't work, but eating healthy foods and moving a little more does, so that is my plan. I am so thankful for SP and those here who share this journey to health and fitness! Welcome to my page - please leave a note to let me know you were here.

Member Since: 10/21/2010

My Goals:
Lose 3 or 4 lbs per month till I reach my ideal weight.

A permanent lifestyle change with more fruits and veggies, more activity, less junk food. Moderation NOT deprivation!

My Program:
1000 to 1300 calories a day, walk outdoors or on the treadmill at least 5 days a week.

I'm a FitBit Alta user. It motivates me to keep moving and reach my step goal of 7,000 steps a day.

Personal Information:
I live in western NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and a 2-year-old domestic shorthair housecat named St. Pat. :) I'm blessed with a husband of 48 years who loves me no matter what. We are enjoying his retirement since October 2014. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 12-year-old daughter.

I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.

Other Information:
A favorite pastime is crocheting. It's relaxing and helps me to keep my mind off food. Love to do grown-up dot-to-dot books.

I enjoy country music, especially the older music, and also southern gospel music.

I love to read, and am addicted to my Kindle Fire. My reading interests include a variety of fiction genres depending on my mood, non-fiction historical books, and inspirational. I belong to two local book clubs that meet monthly at our town library.

    Hello! I just wanted to see how you are doing? I hope your day is going well. I have a quote from you from Brian Houston, Pastor of Hillsong Church in Australia:

    “Life is a journey, a winding path filled with many unknowns. It's only possible to navigate because of God's power and grace.”

    Thank you for posting the picture of the scale with the sayings on it. Its very encouraging.

    How are you doing with working toward your goal of losing 1 pound / week?

    I just read somewhere that the last 20 pounds take longer to lost than the first xxx number of pounds. I THINK that encourages me! emoticon

    I hope you are doing well. Is the weather conducive to walking outside up there? It has been quite warm for the time of year in AL, but I walk on a treadmill in the house, so I have no excuse for not walking most of the time.

    Just want you to know I am thinking about you and rooting for you.
