My next milestone date is August 14th, my goal for my first milestone date was so badly missed it's was unbelievable. So I am 54 and have not been able to win this battle I have been struggling with from days of my youth. The best thing I could say this has taught me is I am no quitter. I am very optimistic with my efforts this time because this is the first time that I have been seriously committed and most consistent in my efforts. While I did not meet my goal in the last period I know why and what is needed to do so this time. I will meet my goal this time and I am confident enough to predict that I will exceed my goal. Now with those bold statements made my goal is to get to 250 by the milestone date.

Member Since: 9/7/2007

Fitness Minutes: 29,875

My Goals:
**For the 12 week period I will eliminate soda & alcohol from my diet while adding more fruits and veggies.
**Implement intermittent fasting with an eating window between 11am to 7pm and a 24 hr period sprinkled in periodically throughout the period.
**I will walk for thirty minutes for no less than 5 days per week. I will incorporate weight training 2x per week for a minimum of 20 minutes.

My Program:
I will work on my own until I accomplish my 2nd weigh loss goal, 1st goal 250lbs and 2nd goal 200lbs.

My efforts as stated above will consist of a 30 minute walk primarily from Monday thru Friday.
On Tuesday & Thursday I will complete a minimum of 20 minute weight training routine online.

I will greatly reduce my reliance on fast food, to eliminate entirely is not realistic so I will not fool myself.

Personal Information:
I am a Bahama Mama from the island of Grand Bahama, celebrating in October 29 years of marriage, a mother of four and grand mother of four. I am presently unemployed due to both hurricane Dorian and Covid 19 which has shut down tourism the major industry of my country. So with all this extra time I am going to concentrate on changing my life for the better by getting healthy once and for all.

Other Information:
“I would rather stand with God and be judged by the world, than stand with the world and be judged by God.”
~ John Chrysostom, bishop of Constantinople; sermon, ca. 400
