My name is Barb. I am a wife, sailor, teacher, and cyclist. I live in Michigan and love being outdoors.Even though I am very active, I am overweight and borderline obese with a BMI of 29.65. I have been struggling with my weight ever since I hit 40. I want this year to be the year I get to my goal of 130 pounds.

Member Since: 5/12/2006

Fitness Minutes: 59,758

My Goals:
My 12 Spark Commandments for Better Living:
1. Remember that love is the most important thing.
2. Be kind to everyone.
3. Don't gossip.
4. Laugh often.
5. Eat vegetables with every meal.
6. Always choose water.
7. Have a plan.
8. Avoid time wasters: watching TV, playing video games, aimlessly surfing the web.
9. Something is better than nothing (exercise, cleaning, saving money, etc.)
10. Don't eat off of someone else's plate.
11. Be mindful.
12. Do it NOW!


My Program:
Exercise Plan
Do 6 workouts per week. Of that 6 times, 3 must be strength training (Cathe STS). On cardio days, I'll do Zumba and cycling.

Food Plan
Shoot for 1200 calories, but no more than 1500.
Spend the weekend preparing portion-controlled meals for the week.

Why lose weight?
I want to be not just active but athletic.
I want to wear clothes that currently don't fit me.
I want to be in photographs with my family instead of hiding from the camera.

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
