Walking My Way to a Healthier ME!

April 2015 - Still here and plugging away at those final few pounds. Currently doing the Spring 5% Challenge as a Casual Traveler! Using my treadmill most every day doing a Jillian Michaels Ifit program, but really struggling with eating. With the weather improving here in western NY, I will be doing a lot more walking outdoors.

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 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.

Personal Information:
I live in upstate NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and an uppity 12-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 11-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. 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.

Never be afraid or hesitant to step off the accepted path and head off
in your own direction, if your heart says it's right for you. Believe
that you will ultimately succeed at whatever you do, and never
forget the value of Persistence, Discipline, and Determination. You are
meant to be whatever you dream of becoming.

Each positive change will lead you to better results. You CAN and WILL turn your GOALS into the results that you are striving for!

My special friend, Karen,

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and leaving a very encouraging note! You seem to always know just what I need to hear!

I too have used discouragement as an excuse to eat too many times! You and I both seem to be growing in that area / the area of changing our habits and our attitudes, which ultimately are the most important things because life will never be perfect on this planet! We will always have to deal with discouragement and times of eating more than we should. The important thing is to deal with them WITHOUT EATING!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yes, the same things you mentioned that affect your weight affect mine, too, ESPECIALLY fatigue! Thank you so much for understanding and sharing!

I'm so glad we are SP friends! You've been a consistent one for me for a long time!

Have you been to Boston yet?

OH, from a comment on your page, you must have had another loss! I am so proud of you and so happy for you!

You must be very close to your goal, if not at it.
