Yay! It's time for the Spring 2016 5% Challenge!

My name is Karen, I'm 66 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've gained a few of those back. :( My ultimate goal is 135-140.

I am participating in the Spring 5% Challenge starting March 26th, 2016, 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 ...

Thanks for stopping by my page. I see you have been a motivator also. When I have time, I will come back and read more of your blogs and words of wisdom. We all need that support to keep succeeding at our programs. Almost forgot, we have disability in common. I have twin brothers with cerebral palsy and MR. Love them to death.

Congrats on your success on sparkpeople....You've done great. i started at 272 and am down to 245 but i'm on the Tortoise's team....I'm slow but sure, SP has kept me from gaining anymore...I've lost a few pounds this year which took me below 250...I'll weigh in tomorrow but think I've lost a few pounds this week. Thanks for commenting on my activity feed. Have a great night. Hugs Lesley

Sorry you lost your Poochie....Hugs emoticon

emoticon I'm surprised to be The Motivator of the Day, as they seldom go back to find us "oldies", but I'm going to stay here for the duration, as I have to keep working on my health. I won't get any younger. emoticon
