Member Since: 10/31/2008

Fitness Minutes: 161,541

My Goals:

My goals for 2021 are:
1) lose 21 pounds, that is just 2 pounds/month and very doable
2) improve my eating habits, avoid carbs, and lower my A1C
3) declutter and organize my house
4) increase sales in my ETSY shop by adding at least 1 item a month from stash

My Program:
I love hike, and try to get 10 miles a week. That isn't always possible, so we have a treadmill for bad weather. I have also had to adjust my diet for a fatty liver condition and pre-diabetes. To do that I will limit processed and prepared foods, concentrating instead on preparing my own meals from scratch with natural products.

I'm a member of the 5% Challenge Casual Travelers team. I've made many friends and received encouragement and support over the past year.

Personal Information:
I am now completely retired and love to spend my time sewing and making quilts. Since my dad passed in April hubby and I have been helping mom with the farm work. It can be difficult balancing farming, sewing time and exercise time, but that is what life is all about.

Other Information:
State of the Stash:
2019 net: +2.5
2020 net: +63.5

    Happy Spotlight Day! I know from being a leader on another team that it's hard doing your own. Great job! Really appreciate the way you monitor the threads and personalize comments. That also takes a lot of time and effort, but makes such a difference. I had to stop volunteering due to health issues that I hope will improve with weight loss. So many people have been affected by this virus. Hope things return to more normal soon and you can resume your volunteering.
