I'm a 51-year old female from Houston, Texas, who has changed my lifestyle in the past 25 months and lost 162 lbs. I would like to lose another 60 pounds.

Member Since: 3/4/2009

Fitness Minutes: 9,599

My Goals:
I want to lose another 60 lbs. to achieve my desired weight. Achieving my loss of 162 lbs. has been great, but it's only motivated me to keep it up as my body and mind feels so much better.

My Program:
I walk everyday which is a minimum of 12,000 steps. I do strength training every other day which is my favorite. I just began jogging 40 minutes a day. It feels so good to work out even when you don't want to do it. I have been eating healthy for about 3 years now just fruits, veggies, very little meat mainly fish and chicken, no fried foods or soda, lots of whole grains and nuts.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
Here's a Checklist for a Positive Life that I read in a book sometime ago:

Today I will search for my own identity and better define
what I stand for.

Today I will give some of the best of myself to others.
My body is healthy, strong, and vibrant.

Today I have the power to change what needs to be changed
in my life.
Today I will listen to myself as well as to others.
Today I will trust in myself. I will look for the joy in this day.
I'm a problem-solver, not a victim.
Today I will stop reacting to everything.
Today I will claim some time for myself.
Today I will accept people for who they are and not who I want
them to be.
Today I will change what I can and accept what I can't change.
Today when I'm overwhelmed by responsibilities, I'll think of
one thing at a time and concentrate on changing or altering
that one thing.

Today I will broaden my own horizons.

    Long time since I've stopped by...sorry, been dealing with the flu, but finally over it...yeah.

    I've been going to therapy for my right knee and in a couple of weeks can start working out at the gym they have in the building.

    How is it going for you? Staying focused? Let me know how things are, we have some catching up to do.

    Take care,
