I was losing weight until I quit smoking (back in 2007). I put it all and an extra 24 pounds on. I need to re-lose those, plus the 10 I hadn't lost yet to get to my goal.

I gave up all soda in 2013 and am working on going Whole Food Plant Based.

2020 Update: Backslid up to the mid 150s. Time to get back on the horse and eat on plan. Need to start tracking again to be accountable.

Update 2019: Down to the low-mid 140s, bouncing a bit. Still doing the 5% Challenges since the first one worked so well. I just need to get back on track and actually DO what I say I'm going to do.

Update 2018: Joined my first 5% Challenge to see if I can get these last 10 pounds off,

Update 2017: Have succeeded in going WFPB with very few slips. Down to the low 150s, but need to lose a bit more as I am only 5' 4.5" tall.

My Goals:
I want go get down to 130 pounds.
I want to learn how to meal plan - I get by so far by not keeping stuff I shouldn't eat in the house, but I don't always eat the best proportions of grains and beans to veggies and fruits - and nuts can be dangerous.


My Program:
Have been eating Whole Food Plant Based 99% of the time. I have been reading about Intermittent Fasting and tried the eRTF (early Time Restricted Feeding) version where I ingest all my calories between 5:30 AM and noon. That stopped being workable when work got too busy to eat all 3 meals at work, so I am going to try doing the other end - no eating before noon and done by 6 pm.



Personal Information:
I am a voracious reader who enjoys Ren Faires and science fiction / fantasy conventions. I have 2 long-haired cats and one son who is ASD.

    Kerry hopefully special need students are more so in person where /if its safe enough.

    The pandemic ,,,, there's just no good answer to the classroom. Many of the kids on the afternoon program are special needs to a degree. I do one on one with a student who's focus isn't well on most days they'll go a bouncing across the room, on the bed, might come back LOL might not.

    It's fun to engage them on topics that they enjoy. The other day a different student mentioned how much they HATE fractions, but since I know they love to cook, we worked it from this angle which is easy enough with a 3rd grader, that would not work well with one in HS.

    OH ALL OF US ARE HOPING come Sept we are ALL Back in the classroom!!

    Thank you for sharing your story on my last blog.
    When I was in college, there was exactly ONE computer class. Fortran for 1 credit.
    In the 70s as part of my Masters program more were available including COBOL, RPG and machine language.
    When I finally retired from teaching in 2007, it was BASIC, Pascal and C++.
    I fulfilled my teaching license renewal requirements with those every few years.
    We have taken so many different paths and here we are together on the same journey to a healthy lifestyle. I am happy to have learned a bit more about your life and background

    Kerry, it took me almost 6 years to purge my book collection. I am now down to 1/2 of one small bookcase, a few favourites that I will read again, five cookbooks and some of my DH's art books. Over the years I have donated at least 5 full liquor boxes annually to the local university women's foundation whose book sales create bursaries for needy female students. Now I enjoy the benefits of the library.
