Greetings everyone! To those of you just starting, this program does work and does become a new and healthy way of life. I am finding walking is much easier-not laboring as I did when I started a year ago from this past summer-I have received so much positive support from both friends and family, which has been motivational as well.
Thank you Spark for your continued commitment to helping people get their lives back on track :)

Member Since: 7/9/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,899

My Goals:
Now that I am proud to say I have lost just over 40 pounds, I am now in a size 10-a size I thought I would not see again!
So, my goal is to stay in this size and even more importantly to stay on healthy habits. Thank you SparkPeople for keeping me on my toes!!

My Program:
Currently, after being able to maintain for over a year, I am tryng to keep myself between a 3-5 lb gain but no more! If I see more coming on, I immediately cut back on carbs--my weakness! Being back to work, I am not exercising as much as I would like but try to fit it in whle I can--mostly walking!

Personal Information:
I have lived in New England all my life. Most of my friends and family are here and we enjoy a special closeness in this small town community. I am always looking at ways to better educate myself and right now, I have to work really hard to get back on track with weight control and my eating habits. I also want to become stronger/healthier to be around for many more years for my grandchild(ren) and family :-)

Other Information:
Nothing like a great summer beach read-fan of Elin Hildebrand novels. I enjoy romantic comedies, love rock and roll and some country, too. I enjoy spending time at the beach with family and just chillin' with friends and family, too!
I also have been a teacher for almost 33 years and I love working on my teacher website when I have time. I also have become a fan of Facebook and its many games-too addicting! LOL!!

    Hello to everyone who I am thanking ahead of time who visits my page! I am so glad to be back to Spark-While I took a little break, I told myself that I would definitely get back on my fave site I have recommended this site to so many of my friends. This is the best place for reading others successes and trials as we all know that weight loss is not for the weak-willed! I congratulate people who have made that commitment to take charge. That was me 1 year ago. I just knew I could not keep putting off getting myself back into shape- I can thank Spark people and the wonderful folks I have met on here and look forward to more as the time goes by:)

    Thank you for commenting on my blog today!

    I went into the winter as a realist - I discussed it with my DH, it is possible I could gain up to 5 lbs during the coldest part of winter. We both agreed that it would be temporary if it happened.

    I have gone up to 123 one day and 122 a couple of times but I always get back to 120.

    What I am trying to say, if you look at it realistically you will not regain the weight. It will only be temporary if at all. Spring is coming and with it we get warmer weather more conducive to outdoor activities!

    I know you can do it! Maintenance is just another word.

    Love you,
