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.

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.

Walk in wisdom this day. Pure wisdom leaves us with no question about whether it is a good thing to do.
Walk in wisdom this day, for wise decision, thoughts and actions bring peace to us.
Walk in wisdom, which practices gentleness even with oneself. Be good to you today.
Walk in wisdom, practicing sound reason in all things you face today.
Walk in wisdom that is full of mercy. Wisdom understands who we are, where we are, and the challenge faced in getting where we are going. It does not give a beat down, but lifts up off the ground.
Walk in wisdom. It produces good fruit, making a life of abundance.
Walk in wisdom. It is unwavering, removing doubt and fear.
Walk in wisdom that keeps us from a life of hypocrisy by stabilizing our course, making our path straight.

Karen, thank you for being such a good SP friend and for so long! The pledge to never quit that you influenced me to sign a few years ago is still floating around my desk. I remembered it, even when I dropped out of SP for a while. Also, it's because of YOU that I decided to actually be active on a few teams I have joined. You are RIGHT, signing in every day and participating in challenges, etc. really does help keep me focused ... and brings me back when I stray!

Thank you for encouraging me to post my last blog. That took a lot of courage on my part (I still want to either rewrite or rename it or delete it!)but your kind words gave me the courage to post it. It obviously is not very popular, but that's okay. I genuinely appreciate your comments on it.

You were one of my first SP friends and have certainly been one of the BEST!

Thanks for your note and your effort to read my blog!

I took my blog down because I was afraid it might be misunderstood. I am NOT an argumentative person (Actually, I HATE CONFLICT!) and after posting it and leaving my computer, I worried that someone might think I was being critical. I will send a copy of it to your mail. Will you please read it and tell me HONESTLY what you think? (I mean about whether or not I should post it.)

Thanks in advance!
