... doesn't always have to be a lifetime on your hips ;) Hello everyone, I am so excited to find this site! I am a 46 year old single female who has struggled with weight issues most of her life. You may check out some of my Spark teams to see my interests and issues, but my main goals here are to continue to gain knowledge and motivation to strive towards my weight loss and fitness goals, and to meet some great friends along the way! God bless you all and good luck on each of your journeys!

Member Since: 4/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 1,463

My Goals:
Limit caffeine to before noon only, and ONLY 2 cups of coffee and/or one 12-ounce Diet Soda!

Increase exercise to 4-5 days a week, 45-60 minutes a day (currently at 2-3 days/wk at 30 min)

Get in 5 fruits and vegetables a day (again- had this down at one time, believe it or not!)

My Program:
I have started to absorb a LOT from the site!

Organizing and saving recipes from site and other resources.

Recently I started working with a heart rate monitor with the help of a personal trainer... am still learning those workouts but I'm enjoying them! Now its time to rev up a lil weight training!

Log EVERYTHING that goes in my mouth every day!

Tell myself I'm worth it, for God doesn't make worthless! :)

Personal Information:
My main reason for committing to better nutrition and fitness is my health. I have had high blood pressure since my early 20's. I also had my thyroid removed last year, and found out I had thyroid cancer. In trying to regulate my thyroid meds it has been a challenge with my metabolism. Also I'm starting to feel some aches and pains with age :)

Other Information:
Other important things in my life: My faith, my family, my career as a mental health professional, my piano students, and my passion for animal rescue and rights.

    Just stopping by to see how you are doing. Hope you’re enjoying being part of the team.

    Also your kitty reminds me of our Odie. She was a cream colored tabby with gold eyes. We miss her. We now have a tortoise shell calico, named Turtle, who is sitting right beside me.
