Hi! Like most of you here, my weight has fluctuated over the years from a heavy 170 (I'm 5'4") to a slim 126. This year, I decided it was going to be all about ME and I was going to make some positive changes, including becoming more healthy. It's a daily struggle, but one I'm committed to now - not just for appearance's sake, but because I want to be active in my old age and I want to be a positive example for my nieces. Life is too short and I want to make the most of it.

My Goals:
My goals are to eat healthy and exercise most days of the week so I can be in great shape for the next big adventure that comes my way.

My Program:
I'm striving to eat healthy foods by using Cooking Light recipes, eating whole foods and eating normal portion sizes. I am exercising most days of the week by using my treadmill, walking outside, riding my bike (weather permitting). Once I feel established in my cardio workout, I will add yoga and resistance bands to my workout for my strength training. I've been using SparkPeople to track my progress, read articles and keep inspired.

Personal Information:
I'm 45 and live in Forest, VA. My biggest passions are reading, international travel and my 2 cats. I also love to cook, scrapbook and go birding, especially in places where I have never been.

Other Information:
Favorite Book: Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

Favorite Movie: O Brother Where Art Thou

Favorite Place: Anywhere I haven't been before

Favorite Non-Fiction Author: Jon Krakauer or Edward Abbey

Favorite Musical Group: Indigo Girls

    I just wanted to stop by your page because I saw that we have the same starting weight and height and similar goals. You have gotten further on your weight loss journey than I have- I hope you don't mind that I'm using you as motivation!

    hey, i just saw your comment on another page about your HRM. i am thinking about getting one. what kind do u have and are they true as to how many calories you really burn. i don't trust looking up calories burned, cause they seem to be to high of a count as to what is burned. thanks for your info.
