Getting Sexy Just in Time For Summer

Hi, my name is Linda. I am a 50-year-old female who lives in Bella Vista, AR, with her fiancee, son, and two cats. I joined spark people in March of 2012. This is my second time joining this site and my last. This time I am much more motivated. I was 143 in March and today, June 5, 2013, I finally reached my goal weight of 125 (124.8) on the scales.

I have lost a lot of inches. I want to lose a few more pounds if possible, and then go into my maintenance stage and get more toned up. I had back surgery in October of 2012 and have trouble walking and lifting things, but I found by doing water aerobics, light weights, and using the Nustep at the gym, I can exercise and still get fit. Spark people has helped me tremendously. I plan to use it for maintenance for life!

SparkPoints: 8,244

Fitness Minutes: 8,687

My Goals:
125 currently. Would like to get into a pair of sexy size 6 shorts by this month if possible and then I plan on maintaining this weight for the rest of my life and continuing to get fit and toned.

My Program:
I follow Spark People every day. I do not do the planned meals, but instead eat healthy. I try to get in my carbs, protein, fat, and caloric requirements every day. I have a few snacks and treats on weekends, but I try to eat healthy as much as possible during the week. I also try to drink at least 6 full glasses of water daily, and more if it is possible. I exercise at least 6 days per week. I go to the gym twice per week and workout for an hour to an hour and a half, using the Nustep for around an hour and water aerobics for 30 minutes to one hour. I also use light weights to do a seated workout 3 times per week and also do a seated cardio workout one day per week. I try to get out and ride my bicycle on weekends when it is nice weather. I have dropped around 2 pounds per week, almost every week. After the first 6 weeks, my program was not that hard to follow. I did use Beck Cognitive Therapy to teach me good eating habits, and that and keeping a diary and exercise log.

Personal Information:
I am a 50-year-old female who lives in beautiful Bella Vista, Arkansas, with my two cats, son, and fiancee. I am not working right now. I had major back surgery in October and do plan on returning to work soon. I have always done office work/transcriptionist work.

Other Information:
I am a Christian. I read books for inspiration and encouargement, I love all different kinds of music from contemporary Christian to alternative rock. I love to cook and experiment with new recipes often.

Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog “Dear Self”

I’ve been doing really well since I wrote that blog and am so glad it’s having such a positive impact so many more Spark People!

Please consider following the link in my latest blog, “I Double Dog Dare You!” The silly little “tweak” I’ve learned there has changed my life in many positive ways in only two weeks - I am so excited about it and really want share this science with as many as I can!

I hope you feel the same way!
