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.

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

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.

We ask ourselves,
'Who am I to be BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?'
Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson

Have a SParkling week.
Bring your Light wherever you go... and S H I N E !! emoticon

Hi Karen,
I'm glad your having a restful day. We are too. We weeded our flower garden this morning. Then it's resting time.
Have a great week.
Hugs and smiles,
Debbie

It's taking me a while to work out how CampWannabeFit works too! There's so much going on - but I'm starting to get the hang of it! See you there ;)
