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.

    Welcome to the January Resolutions! I don't know if moving counts as cardio, but it certainly qualifies for strength training. Who all did you move?

    Hello there friend. Long time no ride, we gotta fix that now that I have a single. We can hit the woods, or woods roads anyway.

    Sara: Congrats on the weight loss!!! What a great start -- that's exactly how you do it -- 2 turns 10 quickly --- you'll see!! I like your decision to do post a "No return" on the lbs. lost -- that is great!! I also love the pix -- especially of you and Jacob -- THAT is what this is all about -- so we can be there for them and watch them grow up. Take good care of YOU -- and if you need assistance uploading and stuff, just let me know - although you appear to be doing wonderfully with that, too. {{{{{Sara}}}}}}}}}}

    Sara: Please read my reply to your Spark mail. I also wanted to tell you what an honor it is to be your **very first** Spark friend and I have taken the liberty of adding you to my SPark friends and family. Together we can do this, Sweetie -- with every step we take, with every conscious healthy food, with every day that we make ourselves our Number One Project --we will do IT!! May I also recommend the CRUNCHERS Team (see the icon on my page) and if you'd like, join a great , loving group of chicks who are totally committed to stepping up their game in a positive and loving atmosphere. Lauren is our Team Leader and we couldn't have a better person to procvide a great place to learn , grow, exercise and have fun!! It'd be awesome to be a co-member with you cuz will rock as we get hot!! lol Hugz, to you Girl!! You can do it!!
