I've never had to exercise a day in my life... at least not before 40! I used to be called Olive Oil. Now I have to work at it. I'm definitely not used to "work" when it comes to loosing weight. I'm my own worst enemy/critic. Lots of people say they wished they looked like me, but I guess most of us are not happy with "us". I'm a high school teacher and I chaperon most formals as you can see in one of my pictures. I hate to admit it, but I can't fit in some dresses I bought only 5 or so years ago. I can't zip them up. I seem to have enlarged my chest measurement and some of it is back fat!!!!!! UUUUGGGGGG then there is my "pudgy tummy" you see when I wear a bikini. Is it wrong to want to look like I have a 20 yr. old body? (buff) Is it possible at 50 and aging? I have no issue with age... I'm a toys r us kid... but I also want to look it (toys r us kid) not an "old" lady. :)

Member Since: 8/15/2007

Fitness Minutes: 526,068

My Goals:
To get rid of the unhealthy fat percentage in my body and to look great in a bikini again. ; )

To begin and maintain a consistent exercise program to look my best and maintain my health.

My Program:
See food and eat it... but making as many healthy choices as possible and sticking to a calorie limit. ; )

I want to hit the gym 3x a week. Work out on the treadmill for 20-30 min. on 2 min. interval walk/jog. Then focus on different body parts each day of my workout plan.

Personal Information:
I currently live in Corona, CA. I am an advanced SCUBA diver I try and take at least one awesome tropical dive trip/year. 2011 took me on a cruise of the Western Caribbean where I went diving in Costa Maya and swam with the dolphins in Cozumel. Also went to Cabo alone and had 2 days of diving. : ) Summer of 09 took me to Australia, and Belize for diving of course. Summer of 08 I went to Turks in the Caribbean. We enjoyed Jamaica on our honeymoon in '05 (2/2011 filed for divorce for domestic abuse which didn't stop) and got advanced certified in Maui in '06. I love to travel and my 3 timeshares help to make it very affordable especially in exotic places.

Other Information:
Calvary Chapel Chino Hills is my current church home and where I also serve. I used to attend Saddleback church at the new Orange, CA campus meeting at the Grove of Anaheim... you know the one.. Pastor Rick and "The Purpose Driven Life", "The Purpose Driven Church" and "40 Days of Purpose". He also prayed at Obama's 1st inauguration. Just finished my Grad studies for my MA in education with an Admin. credential May '11. Now I would like to be a VP at a middle school. March '11 took me to Argentina on a mission trip for 10 days to serve in local churches.

    Just want to say thank you for the beach pics you post on the Community Feed. I don't know how anybody can look at hearts in the sand, blush-colored seashells, soothing waves or glorious sunsets and not feel that it will be a good day!

    Hi. If you want/need a little push...consider joining us for an 8 week challenge. Why not join the X-WEIGHTED CHALLENGE? We're all ages, all fitness levels, all striving to live a healthier life. There is always something to learn from each other. These teams are also a great source of motivation! We can become healthier by working together and making new friends as we go. We compete in weekly nutrition and fitness challenges. It is similar to the Biggest Loser team. There are 3 teams that compete within the X-Weighted team. We do ATC (All Teams Challenge) various challenges (nutrition, fitness etc.) The main requirement is to post your weight weekly. The ATC challenges and/if individual teams have challenges are optional (however, very beneficial). If you have any questions, please let me know.

    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    If you would like to be a member of this challenge you can copy and paste the the link below, or click on my username and leave me a message or click on the BLUE BIGGEST LOSER Icon on my page. Join the team and sign up for the next challenge on the Spring Waitlist thread.
