Strength Training 3 days/week at least 20 minutes
Walk 5 miles every day (weather permitting)
Elliptical workout on the days when I'm not strength training

Track my food daily and stay within my calories. I aim for 10 or more servings of fruits/vegetables per day, with at least half of those servings being vegetables.

Maintenance! I'm back to my goal weight of 130 pounds, and this time I am not just visiting! I'm here to stay!

Weigh in weekly
Support my teammates
Try new things
Participate in all the challenges, and see it through to the end! (Because commitment means Commitment!)

Member Since: 8/21/2007

Fitness Minutes: 247,104

My Goals:

1. Join a challenge
2. Track my food and stay within my calories
3. Exercise daily
4. Include at least 3 days of strength training per week, 20-30 minutes.
5. Weigh in weekly
6. Maintain +/- 3% of my Goal Weight of 130

My Program:
My food plan is to follow a balanced diet and try to meet the optimum grams of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, fat and milligrams of sodium, and be within my calorie range. Focusing on Fruits and especially VEGETABLES, and laying off the sweets!

Personal Information:
My fitness tracker is not connected with my calorie adjustment. If I'm exercising too much, I'll adjust it manually. I think fitbit calories are overstated.

Other Information:
I have a chronic bad ankle - I am unable to do any running. Walking and hiking are OK. Riding a bicycle is fine.
I work full time as a bookkeeper. I use a stand-up desk so that I'm not sitting all day.

    Welcome to the Biggest Loser Season 4. I will be posting additional information in the next week about how everything will be running. Right now I am just trying to get the word out about the group I hope to be up and running on Sept. 11. Please feel free to invite anyone you would like to join. The more people we get the more fun it will be.
