2020 a new year to get this right. 2019 was not a friend and I gained a lot of weight. I got up to 268 lbs I believe that is the highest I have been. I broke my shoulder, am prediabetic, had pneumonia and bronchitis and am tired of always being tired. It is time to make some changes. I now work for several eye doctors and work longer hours than I used to but I am going to make an exercise schedule that works!

Member Since: 8/30/2009

Fitness Minutes: 107,259

My Goals:
*lose 90 lbs
*educate myself more on health, nutrition and fitness
*learn how to help others to reach their goals
*Help my husband lose weight
*learn how to become a published writer

My Program:
is to stick to my walking program and improve my speed and distance
eat smaller portions and be more mindful of what I eat
track both food and exercise
and read an article or part of a book that will help me reach my goal at least 3 times a week,

Personal Information:
My name is Cherie Putterman and I live in a suburb of Milwaukee Wi. I have been fighting weight problems.addictive personality and an over eating disorder as long as I can remember.
I have 6 wonderful children who I love and am very proud of. I work as a veterinary receptionist and most days I love it.
I love reading,writing, kayaking and hiking although my weight has been getting in the way lately and the latter of the 2 make me feel like I am dying when I do them.

Other Information:
I am so happy to be part of Sparkpeople, I have come back so many times and each time I find friendship and support. If I would learn to not turn my back (or not turn off the computer notifications) I know I would find my way to my goals!
