I live in Iowa; I knit, spin, weave, sew. If it has fiber I am all over it. Except for quilting and baskets; not enough time in the day.

In the fall of 2016 I decided I was old enough to be a "little, old, blue-haired lady" and had it dyed. Dearly Beloved likes it so it has stayed. Until the pandemic! Now it is the gray that you see in the photo to the left.

SparkPeople was off my radar for a long, long time. But after finding a new way to go I am using it again. In April 2012 I reached my first goal of losing 60 pounds and have been at maintenance ever since. Which is not quite true. If you talked with my coach I was maintaining. But I gained weight back. Right now I am not 160 but 200. It was four years returning but it returned and now I am working to take it back down without the program I used in 2011-12.

According to BMI and current weight charts (which are totally inaccurate and illogical) I was still counted as obese at 161. But right now I do not feel as good as I could. Sooooo, on the trail to lose what I have gained and perhaps go a bit lower to see how that feels.

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to limber up and gain more stamina. The fact that pounds drop off is an added benefit.


My Program:
I have added more walking; taking the stairs going up. It is bumpy going with being consistent with weights.



Personal Information:
Grace
Iowa City, Iowa
Enforced retirement in February 2017 which makes me very happy for a number of reasons: 1-more time with DB; 2-able to walk more and not be tied to an office; 3-fibre related things, creating, conferences, etc.; and 4-be outside.

Find me on Ravelry as tully; Instagram as gtullyrav; and Facebook Grace Tully to see what is going on day to day.


Other Information:
"Make it work" has become a talisman for me. Many times I want to walk away but Tim G's voice in my head will not let me and so I go back into the fray to try and make it work.

    emoticon for your nice comment on my emoticon "Come from a Long line of Livestock" blog. Not really--but with the many mixed messages growing up, it was sometimes confusing for a young and impressionable child. (I am sorry to hear how that teacher made you step on the scales in front of the entire class and called out the number! .. In the primary grades, i got brought before the entire class, had to raise my dress up with panties exposed for the teacher to give me some hard whacks! I don't know what hurt worse---the paddling, or the humiliation in front of my peers) ... (It's amazing we survived through some of those things!)

    There is a fine balance between honoring the past & losing yourself in it. . . . you can acknowledge & learn from mistakes you made, & then move on & refocus on the now. It is called forgiving yourself. Eckhart Tolle
