I live in Iowa; I knit, spin, weave, sew. If it has fiber I am all over it. Except for quilting and baskets; not enough time in the day.

In the fall of 2016 I decided I was old enough to be a "little, old, blue-haired lady" and had it dyed. Dearly Beloved likes it so it has stayed.

SparkPeople was off my radar for a long, long time. But after finding a new way to go I am using it again. In April 2012 I reached my first goal of losing 60 pounds and have been at maintenance ever since. Which is not quite true. If you talked with my coach I was maintaining. But I gained weight back. Right now I am not 160 but 200. It was four years returning but it returned and now I am working to take it back down without the program I used in 2011-12.

According to BMI and current weight charts (which are totally inaccurate and illogical) I was still counted as obese at 161. But right now I do not feel as good as I could. Sooooo, on the trail to lose what I have gained and perhaps go a bit lower to see how that feels.

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to limber up and gain more stamina. The fact that pounds drop off is an added benefit.


My Program:
I have added more walking; taking the stairs going up. It is bumpy going with being consistent with weights.



Personal Information:
Grace
Iowa City, Iowa
Enforced retirement in February 2017 which makes me very happy for a number of reasons: 1-more time with DB; 2-able to walk more and not be tied to an office; 3-fibre related things, creating, conferences, etc.; and 4-be outside.

Find me on Ravelry as tully; Instagram as gtullyrav; and Facebook Grace Tully to see what is going on day to day.


Other Information:
"Make it work" has become a talisman for me. Many times I want to walk away but Tim G's voice in my head will not let me and so I go back into the fray to try and make it work.

    Florida has its plusses and minuses. Minuses: it’s HOT and HUMID much of the year. We get the occasional hurricane. My part of Florida has been exceptionally lucky not to have had a direct hit in years. Palmetto bugs (big roaches) are a Florida critter I could certainly do without. Plusses: beautiful tropical plants like our maintenance-free orchids, mango and papaya trees. The pool will be usable about two third of the year, more if husband figures out what he wants to do about heating it. We have a plethora of parks, from tiny Wee Scot Park to magnificent Honeymoon Island State Park that can be reached only by ferry. We have some diverse local history; Cuban heritage in Tampa, Greek sponge divers in Tarpon Springs, Scottish heritage in Dunedin, Vietnamese in Pinellas Park, more recent Hispanic mostly Mexican clusters, and a rich Black heritage. It is indeed an interesting place to live. However, I would move north if I could. Husband, however, was born in Canada and never wants to see a northern winter ever again.

    I had heard that I-80 and I-35 were closed in that area for a few hrs. due to blizzard like conditions. At least we didn't have that in the Twin Cities. Thanks for stopping by.
