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.
