Time to lose these refound pounds!

January 2015 - Still here and plugging away at those final few pounds. Doing the Winter 5% Challenge as a Casual Traveler! Using my treadmill most every day during these cold months.

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 3, 2012 - Wow! I've been named a SparkPeople Motivator!! What a thrill!
***************
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 "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed. 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.

Thanks, Karen, for the encouragement on my page and for the prayer. I understand the time commitment when hubby is home a lot. You are in my prayers as you adjust to a new norm. I look forward to seeing you here more and walking the journey with you. BLESSings, Darlene
