Fitness Minutes: 49,780

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, 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 45 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 recently got a Kindle Fire. I'm currently reading "Killing Jesus" by Bill O'Reilly. 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.

I am evaluating my motives this month and getting them firmed up in my mind and heart. It is making a huge difference for me, knowing why I am doing what I am doing. How about you? Commitment to the journey is greatly helped by a constant flow of understanding the reasons behind the steps taken.
