After a few years of on off losing/gaining...I have been consistent onSparkPeople for the past 3.5 weeks. It is so helpful, to post what I eat, track my exercise and stay motivated. The ease with which to do it, really keeps me motivated. I want to check and see how I am doing. The different reads and sites with the interaction of people is ever so helpful. I'm a little below goal in my calories, but it just happens when I seriously start losing weight and I compensate with extra vitamins. I think my stomach just sort gets smaller and says "I'm full". No Sugar, water, no oils/fats, dairy (for now), meats (for now)...veggies/fruits/grains/beans/seeds/n
uts... I feel full and able to maintain the energy for my exercises...as to keep firing all the spark plugs..., so that I can lose the weight.

Fitness Minutes: 45,602

My Goals:
Most of my adult life, I have been overweight and I look forward to winning the battle of the bulge and reclaiming an ideal weight for 5'3" tall. I'd feel healthier.

I plan to put SparkPages through a work-out and do it!


My Program:
INTENSE:
3 days of weight training: upper and lower.
3 days of Aerobic excercise: Biking, walking/hiking

Eating less calories: but with a plan and purpose. High protein: eggs, egg whites, fish, chicken, turkey, lots of green veggies, a fruit a day, less than whole milk and plenty of water.



Personal Information:
I live 30 minutes from Birmingham, Ala. I'm from Florida. My husband is from Birmingham. We've been married a long time. We have 5 grown children and one grandson.


Other Information:
Proverbs: 3: 5&6 is one of my favorite verses, because I have always needed to be reminded of doing what it says.

I enjoy reading, sewing, and working out with friends. Cycling has become a wonderful past-time for me. Joy is Jesus, My family and friends and others, and me. Sometimes I can get it all backwards.

    Thank you so much for your emoticon comments on my surgery blog. You gave me a whole lot of great suggestions. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this help.

    I will keep you updated as soon as I can get on the computer after the surgery.

    I am adding you as a friend as we are both on the Rotator Cuff Team. I am three days and a few hours before surgery. Wishing it was already over and done.

    I plan to go read some of your blogs. Let me know how you are doing. Unless you already did in your blogs.

    Nice to meet you!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog!! I'll have to look for those items because now that my Hubby is Sparking, I think we'll be doing a lot more riding!

    I'll have to catch up on your blogs to see what's up with your shoulder. Hope you're recovering well!

    That sounds like a good idea. I just am in love with the outdoors, so try to do all I can outside. But spinning will take place on the trainer, outside. My sweet husband is going to get it all set up for me. Burn calories, burn! emoticon
