I stumbled upon this site when I was looking for Diet/Fitness/Nutrition Information. I watched a video about it and decided to join. I plan to spend some time looking around and want to begin some kind of diet/fitness/weight loss plan this week ... probably the day after Labor Day (2008).

I have set/reset my goals here several times - I have had successes and setbacks ... but this site seems to keep me 'on track' ~ even if I 'stray' every now and again. I have actually lost 25 lbs. and as a result, reached my goal - but, slowly, over time I got 'lazy' and gained it all back! I find that as you get older, it is more difficult to lose - so, it is nobody's fault but my own, but this will take some work!

Summer/Fall 2018 Update: I've been following Keto practices and have joined the local YMCA and am enjoying some of the group classes and even the machines! I still prefer walking around my neighborhood as my exercise and do that whenever I can.

My Goals:
I started here in September, 2008 with a goal to get into shape and lose 24-25 lbs. I've achieved my goal in the past, but didn't pay attention all the time and I need to get back to and re-focus on that first goal (getting there and sticking to it).

My main goal is to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Healthy, sensible eating and exercise is exactly what is needed!


My Program:
In 2010, I found the 5% Challenges. These Challenges, along with some common sense eating/exercising are some of the things that have helped me most on this journey to create a 'healthier' me.

It is now the beginning of 2018 Spring 5% Challenge and these Challenges are still a very important a part of my SparkLife. I love the Challenges and plan to continue them as long as I'm a SP member. As an additional resource, (and a present to myself), I signed up for SparkCoach and began that feature on 1/1/17.

~~~~~Spring 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment~~~~~
1. MINIMUM Exercise (walk outside or Leslie Sansone DVD's when the weather isn't that great) ... 4-5 times/week (approximately 30 minutes/session)
2. Research and explore strength training options and try to incorporate them into my routine.

~~~Spring 5% Challenge Healthy Eating & Nutrition Plan~~~
I feel that I am 'Carb Addicted' and every time I have gone on a journey to lose weight and become healthier, mo
