Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 210 in September 2011. I needed to lose 75 pounds. I lost 50 pounds with adding exercising, eating more fruits, vegetables and eating way less fast food. June 2016 hubby fall and broke his neck, with the stress of him in the hospital and care homes for 7 months I put back on some weight. I am married to a very supportive man who with his help I think I can do this. I love to cook and he inspires me to make, healthy low calorie meals., I have learned to love exercising. I walk most every day. I like walking and walk at least one mile in my morning walk. Many times that turns in to 2 or 3 miles I just enjoy it so much. I also do Spark workout videos those are really fun too. I do mostly the strength training ones as strength training is very important. I look forward to learning more things every year to be a good role model to others on this journey. --------------------- July 2018 Joined the 5% Summer Challenge and am very glad I did. One of the tasks was to track every thing you eat. I found out I was going way over allotment even though I was doing portion control. I started eating on the low side of the allotment for the day and the weight started coming off WooHoo.

Personal Information:
I live in Sacramento Ca with my hubby of 12+ years.

2015-Hubby is also working to lose weight and is helping me stay on track.

2017-after hubby's fall he lost weight while in care homes, he went from 230 to 177 at 6'2". He would only eat a few bites of the meals he was served and also got sick with C-Diff. On coming home, with the help of his VA doctor I got him over C-Diff and he started eating good home cooked meals. He has put back on some weight but is still thin.
