Hello, I'm Lorie, I am on a quest to become Fit by Fifty, I have just about 4 years to do it. My goal is to lose about 130lbs give or take. I have spent more than 30 years battling mental illness, weight gain, and a bunch of health problems. After years of taking care of everyone else, I have finally decided to take care of myself. As if this new healthy lifestyle change was not enough of a challenge, I also recently embarked on an exciting adventure of becoming an author. I have dreamed of being an author since well, forever, but now with a push from some new friends (authors and readers) I met in an online Book Club, I finally gave it a try. I have penned two stories so far, one is a 23K FanFic and a 5K short story that was published as part of a collection early this month (March 2018). I am currently working on what will be my debut book with plans for a Fall 2018 release date. I treat every day as an adventure and every moment as a gift, one never knows when that last moment will come so you should take time to enjoy all those little moments... just because.

My Goals:
To be Fit by Fifty by losing 130 lbs and living a healthier lifestyle.

My Program:
I am using Spark People as I have used it in the past and lost an amazing 105 lbs over a year and a half. I'm now back (7 years later) with most of that 105 lbs right back where it started. The key to success will be to continue this healthier lifestyle after I hit my goal.

Personal Information:
Not sure what I'm supposed to put here...

Other Information:
Uh? I got nothing.

    I'm awed by your imagination! It will be interesting for us to be around for the unfolding of your writing as well as your new eating life. It's unlikely that's as obvious what its future is as it is for your characters! (But their story might change. too. ) Most people take quite awhile to find the right adjustments, but that doesn't mean they're suffering or failing the whole time!

    emoticon to the San Diego team. I am on the team too! I noticed that you left Sparkpeople and you are now back at it. I did the same thing. I left last October and came back too. I wish you much success! Hopefully we can encourage each other! emoticon

    Did you get any welcome message from the San Diego team? I've recently been added as a leader and don't know what has been set up before. tx
