I am a 48 year old happily married to a wonderful man in St Paul Minnesota. We both started this journey about 1 1/2 years ago when his cholesterol & my blood pressure rose. He was put on medication and I decided it was time for a change, I do not want to be on medication. Since then we have lost a combination of about 130 lbs, his cholesterol is down and my BP is great. I work as a physicians coordinator and sit at a desk most of the time. The reason I am starting with SPARKPEOLE is I have been stuck in what I call my weight rut. I've struggled with my weight all my life and have decided that it is only me that can change me. So it now time for me to do it for me!!! The goal I have now is to tone up and lose that extra weight thats just hanging around yet. So after hearing what this site has done for a friend of mine (she looks stunning by the way) this place is the place to help me reach my goals. So here we go!

Member Since: 1/31/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,542

My Goals:
About a year and a half ago I started at 243lbs
(I know I was more but couldn't get myself to get on the scale) but when I finally did it read 243 which was not good since my BP was going up so the weight had to go down.
I have not set a date for my goal weight yet so I guess that it is one of my goals.
January weight 179lbs
Goal weight now is: 150lbs

My Program:
Cut out high fat food - and learn to eat good tasting healthy food. I used to always call healthy food rabbit food but now I must have become a rabbit cuz I love the taste of it and get sick to my stomach when I eat high fat foods.

Personal Information:
I hit 85 lbs today!!!!

    Are you coming back to spark???

    And my status was because I got up early every morning last week and worked out for at least a half hour- then Friday came & ate everything in sight... and Saturday there was a stop at KFC w/ their potato wedges... just a lot of empty calories that totally undid all of my workouts! And I leave in a week for Florida with my very skinny friend... :(

    How are things going with you?

    I hate that you are succeeding without being on here. And I hate that you aren't even having to work too hard to get back to where you were.

    BTW, Saturay was fun! We will have to do it again when we can spend more time in the stores. Next time, don't let me eat so much though!!!

    What did Mike think of the wraps?

    Time to reconnect on here, lady. The scale is being a b**** to me, so I know that I need spark more than ever - as well as my spark friends and my other friends.

    Join me and lets make 2009 better than 2008.
