My name is Karen, I'm 68 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. Gained a few of those back - I'm at 163 now and working to get rid of those lbs and a few more. My ultimate goal is 140.

My goal for 2018 is to lose 25 lbs (1/2 lb per week) and to have a minimum of 1000 fitness minutes every month, increasing gradually to 1250.

Starting April 7th, I'm participating in the Spring 2018 5% Challenge as a member of the Casual Travelers team.

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

Fitness Minutes: 93,673

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 4-year-old domestic shorthair housecat named St. Pat. I'm blessed with a husband of 49 years who loves me no matter what. We are enjoying his retirement since October 2014. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 14-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 online jigsaw puzzles and word puzzles.

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 a local book club that meets monthly at our town library.
