My name is Colleen and I'm 43 years old. I'm from North Central Iowa and have been married for 6 wonderful years now.

I've been a member on Spark People for a couple of years now, but have just recently become more serious about my weight loss goals. I need to start feeling better about myself and the way I look.

It will be great to have the support from others from Spark People. Right now I need some real motivation from everyone out there. Being held accountable for everything you do is probably a good way for me to start back at it.


Member Since: 12/22/2006

Fitness Minutes: 7,201

My Goals:
I'm trying to make small realistic goals. I don't want to overwhelm myself with something that is unattainable. I'm trying to just go month by month. If I can lose 5 pounds a month I will be very happy with myself (of course, if I go beyond that will be even better)!


My Program:
I'm really watching portion sizes and generally what I eat overall. I've decided to stop eating anything in the evenings after a certain time (I think anywhere between 7 and 7:30 pm will be it for the evening). My husband and I purchased a brand new Bowflex at an auction (it was put together but had never been used so we got a great deal on it). I'm working really hard at doing that 3 days a week and then doing some type of cardio 3 days a week. So far, so good!



Personal Information:
My name is Colleen and I'm from a small town in North Central Iowa. My husband's name is Brad and he has 2 boys from his previous marriage. One of his son's and his girlfriend just had a beautiful baby boy. (I have a photo of myself and Carter on my profile.) He has become a new joy in both our lives - it's amazing what a baby does to your life!!!

    Hubby and I got new iPhones for Christmas so I downloaded a free app from iTunes called 5K101 by Running Mate. It starts you out slow with half hour of walking with intervals of short jogs. Each week the jog time increases while the recovery walk time decreases...
    SP does have a couple programs:

    I'm having just the opposite, I'm currently looking for new employment so I probably spend too much time on here! LOL

    All is well with me healthwise. I got my 6 month all clear... emoticon
