I'm 54 years old, have been overweight for nearly 15 years, am sick and tired of it, and READY to change permanently! I've lost 59.5 pounds and although I have a signficant amount to lose, I'm encouraged. I REALLY dislike exercise and this has been my greatest challenge. Despite this, I'm trying to find small ways to get in physical activity. I'm looking forward to good health, weight loss, learning new strategies and making new friends.

Member Since: 1/16/2008

My Goals:
During the next 6 months, my physical goals are to lose 1 pound a week and increase my exercise minutes.

My health goal is to lower my blood pressure.

My emotional goals are to feel better about myself, gain confidence, and spread my own spark to my community. To that end, I've committed to doing 12 months of full time volunteer work beginning in January 2009. It's a risk financially, but I'm excited about it!


My Program:
Eating healthy: 1250-1500 calories a day.
Exercising: I'm not currently formally exercising but am trying to get physical activity in on a daily basis by walking and making extra efforts.



Personal Information:
I'm single, don't have children and am a professional clinical social worker. I have tons of good friends and family, so I'm never lonesome! I love to travel and my hobbies are reading, soapmaking, baking, and crafting. I'm excited to be on the path to a healthy life and am looking forward to learning and incorporating new skills.


Other Information:
Favorite Quote: "Leap and the net will appear."

    Susan,
    I was in Italy - I am not heading there now. I do know two couples who are going though and they are touring around on their own. They are seasoned travelers. I was there (gulp) 26 years ago, age 35. I was in Venice, Florence and Rome.
