I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. They are a big piece of my life now so I need to be able to keep up. I'm striving for routines and habits that are sustainable over the long run. I actually started with SP in May, 2010, but under a different user. I've been taking part in the 5% Challenges, currently doing the 2020 Fall Challenge, and they are great. Even if I don't reach the loss goal, I still stay motivated to keep trying.

Member Since: 11/20/2014

Fitness Minutes: 179,584

My Goals:
UPDATE September 2020
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2020 Fall 5% Challenge
I will track my food daily eating in the calorie range of 1200-1500 calories
I will do 30 minutes of strength exercise daily, alternating core and upper body
I will do the exercise bike/treadmill 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week
I will drink 8-9 glasses of water daily
I will walk 2 miles minimum, daily



My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 2 miles minimum every day. I do strength exercises every day, alternating the major muscles. I will stick to my food plans of 1200-1500 calories which do not include ultra-processed food.



Personal Information:
I just moved to the same town as my daughter's family because they are a big part of my life. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, trying out their new soccer equipment a couple falls ago). I am a dyed-in-the-wool cat lover.

Reading and playing the piano are my favorite pastimes with computer games right behind them. Trivia bit: I used to sing opera at various recitals. I’m also a Navy vet (Vietnam).

Walking is always my go-to physical activity. I don't have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment so I walk the halls a lot and do have hand weights. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store.

    Thank you for your input on my “honest question” blog
    There’s a lot of wisdom here among Sparkers
    Companies would do well to survey and listen to US!
    Yes, I do remember when beauty contestants' bios included their measurements.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my “Hope” blog.
    DH & I know we have been very fortunate, especially to have found each other all those years ago.
    I await the day that the world returns to normal and I can cook that turkey for family.
    Be sure I WILL post a photo of that.

    Thank you for your comment on my maintenance anniversary blog
    While I MIGHT have been able to lose the weight on my own, I NEVER could have maintained it without Spark and the support of the people here. Everyone I’ve met has contributed in some way to my success.
    I agree with you about "sizing creep" but have to admit that over the decades I was perfectly happy deluding myself. The fashion industry knows I am not alone in this which is exactly why it happened. The reason we need a size zero today is because by the measurements it used to be a size 6-8.
