Rita's Road

Lost weight thanks to Spark People. Wish I could say that was the happy ending, but health problems and surgeries got in the way. I have since regained much of the weight I lost. Having huge challenges with my diet. Thankfully, the exercise habit that Spark People helped me make a lifestyle has remained strong. Struggling with arthritis and fibromyalgia has given me added challenges, making me realize how important physical activity is.

Fitness Minutes: 78,411

My Goals:
My current goal is to 1.continue to record my food every day,
2 drink 8C of water daily,
3 to exercise and be more active daily
4 to weigh myself regularlyl

My Program:
I take part in water aerobics 3 days a week, swim laps and walk until the weather clears for me to bike again.

Getting stronger every day!
I feel great! April '09 was the start of an incredible journey into losing the weight that was effecting my health. It's been a great journey that surprisingly enough, has shown me that I could do what I didn't believe I could! My family is proud of me and that means the world to me!

Personal Information:
I was born in Billings, Montana and have lived here my entire life. I have been married to my very supportive husband, Bob for 33 years and we have 5 children and 3 grandchildren with 3 more on the way in 2011. I am a Christian and love serving in my church. I take care of elderly and love that profession.

Other Information:
I have reset my spark page. I need to lose the weight that I regained after 5 surgeries. I regret that I was careless and regained weight while ill and recovering. I was not as active as I like to be and didn't watch my food intake. Shocking how fast the hard work of losing weight can be undone!

Hi,
Thank-you for reading my blog about T-Tapp. Funny that I've been recently thinking I need to go back to doing it.

I didn't keep it up mainly because I enjoy walking more and couldn't seem to fit both in. Then, the longer I went without doing, the less I was motivated to.

I wouldn't put it in the category of a fad, but for me it wasn't my favorite thing to do. It's hard at first. BUT, the one thing I can say is that it is most definitely the best strength training program out there, especially if you don't enjoy working with weights. You use your own body for resistance and the moves are carefully choreographed to combine multiple muscle groups all working at once. I lost A LOT of inches, especially in my mid section, in a relatively short amount of time. It's also rehabilitative and helps anyone with knee or back problems.

The only thing keeping me from doing it is my love of cardio. I still believe in the workout and its effectiveness.

I would suggest going on the website www.ttapp.com and look at the "try before you buy" section. I believe there are videos of some of the exercises there and lots of information on how it works.

Thanks again for finding my old blog and re-kindling a fire in me to go back and revisit it.

Wellness isnít about deprivation and itís not about perfection.

It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth,
training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential,
and then taking small steps to support that shift.

Itís about showing up for yourself, day by day,
and then one day finding that youíve undergone a transformation.
