My name is Terri & I live in Huntington Beach, in coastal Orange County, California. I feel like I need to get serious about my health.

I plan to start the new year by continuing to eliminate sugar, walking more, trying Zumba-type exercises, and anything else that will get this sorry ass moving more!!

Goal #1 - lose 10 lbs by Valentine's Day. - Done!
Goal #2 - lose 10 more lbs by Easter.
Goal #3 - lose 10 more lbs by July 4th.


Member Since: 10/29/2010

Fitness Minutes: 224

My Goals:
I am a single mom to a teenage son. I want to lose 65 - 70 lbs., but more importantly, I don't want to be a victim of my family history of heart disease, diabetes, and other weight related illnesses. As it is, I am a klutz and always falling and hurting myself. (Think - Help I've fallen and I can't get up!)


My Program:
Baby steps:
1) cold turkey - cut out sugar - ongoing but on track;

2) try to get some walking in - park farther away from my stops and use the treadmill when the weather is nasty;

3) stay within my caloric levels - so far so good with help from SP!!!

4) eat more high fiber foods - ex. hummus with whole wheat pita for a snack - yummy!

5) stay positive and motivated - this time of year it is challenging but with the help of my new Spark friends, its easier.



Personal Information:
I am 59, work part-time as a bookkeeper, love living in "Surf City" but I don't surf. I make artisan jewelry with agate, jasper, freshwater pearls, turquoise, Swarovski Crystal, etc.

    It is time for us to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever, the one who recognizes the challenge and does something about it.
