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.

Hi Karen! How are you doing? I hope you and your retired husband are having a great Valentine's Day!

Thank you for the Valentine goody. It is nice to know you are thinking of me. emoticon

I think of you a lot! I have been having trouble keeping up with everything since I am participating in the Winter 5% Challenge. I love the challenge, but find it very time-consuming. However the time deficit is outweighed by all the good that comes from it.

You must be rid of that extra 10 pounds you were trying to lose, or at least have lost most of them by now. It's hard, isn't it! I can gain so quickly and it takes forever to lose it! (Well, not literally forever, but you know what I mean!)

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your dear hubby!
