January 2019 update:
Still working on those last 10 lbs...
2018 was a lazy year, as far as physical activity goes.
I'm lucky I was able to maintain.
I'll be building more activity into my days in 2019.
Strategy is to plan it, schedule it, do it!

January 2018 update:
10 unwanted pounds have found their way back onto my hips and thighs... Goal is to lose those again.
It's slow going.

Member since March 2007.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 10+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

My Goals:

My Program:
1. Eat mostly clean and unprocessed
I believe there are no "forbidden foods". Instead I am focusing on the quality of what I eat.
2. Drink plenty of water
This has been a challenge - always.
3. Be active
Zumba, yoga, and hiking are my favorite pastimes.
4. Get enough sleep
Goal is 8 hours.
5. Manage stress
My stress managing methods are exercise, music, and meditation/yoga.
6. Positive attitude
Turn can't into can, and don't into do.
7. Gratitude
Appreciate who I am, where I am, and what I can do.

    Thanks for your comments on my settling in blog. Right now, this is for 4 - 5 months and our permanent home is in NY outside NYC.
    Can't wait to try Zumba here; not only for the exercise but it seems that the women who take the class would be fun to get to know. this is a big golfing community and we don't play golf. Going to croquet intro on Friday. Need to get to pickle ball too.

    Very active group here which is really great.

    Kendra, thank you so much for your kind words about our little furry ones. They arrive this Sunday. Whoopee!

    I hope you are doing well in every way.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. Funnily enough, maybe the frustration was the motivation I needed. I quickly dropped a couple of pounds.

    I hope you have a good week!

    One thing about the avocado egg recipe I posted: you have to use an extra large avocado and extra small egg, and really hollow out the avocado half before putting the egg in, to keep the egg from overflowing. Someone suggested scrambling the egg and then putting it in the half. They look pretty.
