Walking My Way to a Healthier ME!

April 2015 - Still here and plugging away at those final few pounds. Currently doing the Spring 5% Challenge as a Casual Traveler! Using my treadmill most every day doing a Jillian Michaels Ifit program, but really struggling with eating. With the weather improving here in western NY, I will be doing a lot more walking outdoors.

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 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.

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 12-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 11-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. 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.

Always take another step. If that is to no avail, take another and yet another. One step at
a time is not too difficult. So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist. For now
I know one of the greatest principles of success... if I persist long enough, I will win.

It's MORE than ok to add me! The more the merrier! I'm always wanting to meet new people! I understand what you mean by not hitting goal weight. I intentionally set mine a little higher than what 'the correct BMI' for me is so its attainable!
