SparkPoints: 105,386

Fitness Minutes: 4,710

My Goals:
Get fit enough to keep up with my dogs.

My Program:
Control portions, exercise consistently & explore food groups other than chocolate.


Goal 1 --hit 247 by 7/4/15 (BMI 39.9)

Goal 2 - break 200
March 2016?

Goal 3 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#)

Goal 4 - BMI = Normal (154# or less) Sometime this millenium...


Personal Information:
I'm a SWF 50-something native Oregonian. My dogs are my kids & my reason for getting fit.

I enjoy gardening--flowers by preference & veggies for health. I love old dogs & old movies, reading British cozy mysteries, non-fiction history, and all-things-dog.

I spend probably too much time reading dog training lists, books & Sparkpeople!

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
