I am Treesa.I was a big spark page user and lost a lot of weight, met a lot of great friends in doing so. Life got difficult and I had a few changes in my life. Needless to say I gained some weight in the process. I am back to what I know works! Logging my food and exercise and getting help from people in the same situation! I hope I can motivate some of you as well. My son is getting married in April 2017. I have time to get fit. Let's do it together!

Member Since: 10/13/2008

Fitness Minutes: 26,638

My Goals:
My goal is to stay at 135 and not gain the weight back. I want to tone up my body and be more healthy in the process. I want to exercise every day because it is fun not because I have too.

My Program:
I am following weight watchers with a low carb concentration. I try to do cardio 3-4 times a week and strength training 3 times a week. I love Coach Niclole's quick but effective videos and do them often.
I have made it through the c25k program and enjoy running. I still try to walk every day and add a run into the walks when I am out alone or with my dogs.

Personal Information:
I live in Northern lower Michigan. I recently retired after teaching Special Education after 30 years. I have 4 grown sons and plan on traveling to visit them more now that I have the time to do so.

Other Information:
I like to read when I have time to just sit and do it. I m learning to crochet to keep my hands busy while watching tv. I love tv shows like the csi shows and army wives. I dont watch much tv because commercials are just too long. I play golf in the summer and x-country ski in the winters.

    Still not retired but maybe in a year or two, although government cutbacks may push me into retirement in a year. We will how things move along. Always busy it seems. Have agained about 10 pounds but plan on lossing it; it always creeps up slowly(haha).

    Take care of yourself, sounds like reitrement is a blast and gives you lots of time to bond with grandkids too.

    Have a happy Easter !! emoticon

    right now it's just random 4th year (senior) humanities courses to finish off my bachelor's degree... the autism courses won't be until fall (if i can finish these first and work out how to pay for them of course!)

    Thanks for the flowers. Oscar really left a hole in our family, not just in my favorite chair. It's funny how one small dog could take up so much room!
    We are still lost but it's only been a week.

    long time no chat my friend! here's the super quick version of what's new: last year was really rough - henry had a really bad leg break and spent 4 months in a wheelchair and 9 months total in a cast. the specialists thought for a long time that finn had autism (some still do), but we figured it out that he just has a very bad temper, no patience, and a mean streak!
    now for the positive: nolan is doing AMAZINGLY well, henry is finally all healed and growing up WAY to fast for my liking, finn is speaking and developing normally, and i am back in school full time - the plan is to be a behaviour interventionist for kiddos with autism by the end of 2013... phew, now that's an update! your turn! :)
