Hello there! My name is Charlene and I am doing this.
CTY is on it!

Plans for the first half of 2018: Keep this maintenance life going strong (and it wouldn't hurt to lose 5-7 more pounds either) and fine tune my healthy eating just a little more.

Slogan: Keep on, Keto-ing on!

My mottos:

2018: Get Over It and Get On With It

Healthy Diet
Heal Thy Diet
Heal Thyself

2016: Keep on, keepin' on

2015: Don't Delay

Member Since: 8/25/2016

Fitness Minutes: 53,806

My Goals:
#1 goal is 10,000 minutes above my base activity.
#2 collect as many Keto days as possible

My Program:
In 2005 I lost 80 lbs and made it to Onderland by following a strict (and unhealthy) low calorie plan. And yes it worked, but I was gaunt, grumpy, tired and in constant state of craving/hungry. By 2015, the scale crept up 20 lbs so I decided to get get a grip and get to a normal BMI by eating healthy food. I lost 47 lbs more on Weight Watchers and as cool as that is--I have found I was not eating enough calories and some nutrition areas were lacking. So I merged many good habits I learned at WW with the Spark to keep my macros in check. I have finally found a plan that works brilliantly for me and doesn't leave me craving anything but healthy foods. I have sustained a LCHF (low carb, healthy fat diet) since September 2016 (and lost an additional 12 lbs) and can honestly say I can do this forever!
My total weight loss is 133 lbs. I am happy to share my WW and LCHF experiences--just ask.

Personal Information:
I am retired from teaching (Social Studies 7th grade). My favorite color is green and I am a Capricorn!

Other Information:
I named my scale Otis (after the inventor of the elevator). Because my scale has it's ups and downs--but by the end of the week when everyone goes home-- it needs to be down.

    Day four of low carb..... drinking coffee without sugar is tough. No change in energy or weight.....one day at a time! You're my inspiration!

    Thanks for the tips. No grains would be hard for me...but, I have gone gluten free. I like Rice every once in awhile. I know I need to cut something out to get this last 35 pounds off. Sigh. Having bad knees (although they are feeling better lately), makes it hard to do a lot of strenuous exercises. Eating less is the only option and that is so hard to do! I am down to less than 2000 most days and that is with some exercise. Work in progress-something is going to work eventually. emoticon
