Time to lose these refound pounds!

September 2014 - Ugh, just had to reset my weight loss ticker. :( Up almost 10 lbs this summer, time to get back on track. I've joined the fall 5% challenge which will be starting Sept. 20th (Go, Casual Travelers!), and started the official 10-minute daily exercise streak challenge on 9/4.

August 23rd - I'm so thrilled to be today's SP Featured Motivator! Thanks, SP!!

My name is Karen, I'm 65 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. My goal is 135-140.

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.

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, or ride my exercise bike, at least 5 days a week.

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

June, 2012 - I was honored as the Done Girl Page of the Month - Thank you, Done Girls, you are the best and I love you all!

On 12/17/10, I was DGOTD!! WooHoo!

Personal Information:
I live in upstate NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and an uppity 11-year-old domestic shorthair housecat. :) I'm blessed with a husband of 46 years who loves me no matter what. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 10-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.

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

I love to read, and am addicted to my Kindle Fire. I'm currently reading "Snow in August" by Pete Hamill with my book club, and "Midwives" by Chris Bohjalian. My reading interests include a variety of fiction genres depending on my mood, non-fiction historical books, and inspirational. Favorite authors include Karen Kingsbury and Sue Monk Kidd.

Thank you for your sweet, encouraging note, Karen. I was hoping I would hear from you!

You said you had a birthday recently; when was it? Maybe if I read your bio again I will find out. :)

About your husband's pending retirement ... I think you will find more challenges than the ones you listed! emoticon It was a BIG adjustment for my husband and me, but we agreed that we had been happy for 37 years and we were not going to let retirement ruin a good marriage! We just celebrated our 51st anniversary and are happier than we have ever been! Working on the adjustment of his being home all the time was worth the effort. Now I wouldn't have it any other way!

How near are you to your goal? You must be VERY close! You look great!

It is late and I am tired. Going to bed now, but so glad to be in touch again!

You are never given a wish without also being given the power

to make it come true. You may have to work for it however, it

can come true!
