Fitness Minutes: 19,361

My Goals:
I have 50+ pounds to lose and am determined to stick with it. I joined Spark People with the mindset that I would keep myself accountable. I will set S.M.A.R.T. goals to achieve the best version of myself by adopting a lifestyle that includes a fitness and nutrition program. My goal is to become the best version of myself.

My Program:
Grow Young Fitness (an online fitness program for seniors)
Gym membership
BL/BLC challenges

Personal Information:
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart. We have a son and daughter and 2 grandchildren. We are both homebodies because we moved a lot when we were first married. We lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Middletown, Ohio; Chicago Illinois; Beulah, North Dakota; Yuma, Arizona; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I am a retired elementary school teacher. I loved teaching and love retirement. I enjoy cooking, reading, gardening and spending time with friends and family. I love sunshine and the rocky ocean shores.

Other Information:
When I was little I used to cry because I was so skinny. HA! Until I was in my 40s I could eat as much and whatever I wanted without gaining weight. Then, my metabolism slowed down. Yikes. I had never had to control my eating before. I tried losing weight on my own but until this past March (2018) when I joined Spark People did I actually get serious about it. I tried some spark and calendar challenges but it wasn't until I joined the White Rabbit BLC37 team that I actually felt I would have the support and encouragement to be held accountable in developing a healthy lifestyle change.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Chat.
