My name is Linda. I am a wife, a mother of 3 grown children, and a grandmother of 4 beautiful girls.

In 2002-03 I lost 50 pounds but have gradually put most of it back on, especially since I retired in 2007. But,as of May 2009 I had lost 35 pounds with 10 more to go. Then in June 2009 my mother passed away and I stopped tracking my food.

All of a sudden it is 2011 and put 25 of those pounds back on. I have a son getting married in August 2011, so want to get that extra weight back on.

I had a wake up call with some health issues Fall 2007, and they have reversed themselves along with the weight loss. My doctors and I are very happy.



Member Since: 1/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 21,672

My Goals:
I would like to get my weight down to around 150 or a little lower so that I can maintain a healthy lifestyle.


My Program:
I am tracking what I eat. It is easier when I can see my progress, also when I can see what I have been eating.

I was a Curves member for over six years, but it was no longer doing me any good. January 2009 my husband and I joined a gym and are trying to go as often as we can. I am finding that I am getting in more exercise time, and a variety of exercise. Plus, it should help my husband also.



Personal Information:
My name is Linda Dersch. I live in DeKalb, IL. My email address is ladersch@comcast.net.

I am 62 years old and retired 4/30/2007 from Northern Illinois University where I was a financial aid administrator.

I am a born again Christian and attend BSF weekly. I am also the treasurer for my local church.

I am a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan. Maybe this will be the year. Go Cubbies!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Linda! I'm so glad I navigated my way to your page. I love me some Cubbies!! They're the best, even if they don't win. I thought I would never see them win their division. Now I hope I see them win the NL pennant and be in the World Series - they don't have to win - just be in it!! emoticon

    Thanks Linda. I went ahead and bought the book on my kindle. I have been really good about exercising but struggling with the eating. I have under or over never what exactly I should be with the calories. I need motivation. Hopefully the Sparks book will light a fire under me. Thanks again!

    Hi Linda,
    I saw you bought the Sparks book. I was wondering if it is worth the cost. I got a kindle for my birthday (which I'm loving) so it's probably cheaper than the actual book. Did you learn anything different or was it helpful? Just wondering. Thanks!
