My name is Karen, I'm 66 years old, and I'm DONE being the fat girl! I started my Spark journey in Oct. 2010 at 230 lbs and have lost 80 lbs down to 150. My ultimate goal is 135-140.

Starting Jun 25th, I am participating in the Summer 2016 5% Challenge as a member of the Casual Travelers team! My goal is to lose 7 lbs over the 8 weeks.

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.


Member Since: 10/21/2010

Fitness Minutes: 73,200

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 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.

Personal Information:
I live in western NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and a 2-year-old domestic shorthair housecat named St. Pat. :) I'm blessed with a husband of 47 years who loves me no matter what. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 12-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. Love to do grown-up dot-to-dot books.

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. I belong to a local book club that meets monthly at our town library.

    You don't need anyone's affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don't have to internalize that.

    Your worth isn't contingent upon other people's acceptance of you. it's something inherent.
    YOU EXIST, and therefore, YOU MATTER.

    You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings.
    You're allowed to assert your needs and take up space.
    You're allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough.
    And you're allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.

    Have you doubted your progress???
    Regretted your choices???
    Put yourself down???
    Remember that you are doing just fine. Remind yourself right now that no matter what it looks like, you are doing the best you can and getting better.
    ENCOURAGE yourself, SUPPORT yourself and CELEBRATE every little thing about yourself. - Iyanla Vanzant
