I am 67. I have been married for16 years. My DH passed on 4-19 of this year. I recently lost our Molly B who was 14 y/o and my loving cat Leonardo of 16 years. All within a week of each other. It was a horrible three weeks. I have 3 dogs, and a horse. Life has been quite rough losing three loved ones in three weeks.

I joined SP July 21, 2014 and lost 37 pounds in the first six months by eating healthy and exercising. Over the next two years, I went through a gain/loss period. I gained all but 10 pounds back.

I began the Ketogenic diet on September 25, 2017. I have currently lost a total of 50 pounds and have now met my ultimate goal weight.

This next journey will be an exciting time. Maintenance is an adjustment not to mention very challenging. One thing a person needs is to use all the skills learned to work thru the bumps of this journey.


My workouts consist of Cardio 5 days a week.
Core exercises with coach Nichole and/or Leslie Sansone 2 or 3 times a week.
Strength Training with Coach Nicole and/or Leslie Sansone 2 or 3 times a week.

I could not have done this without the help of my SparkFriends and SparkCoaches.

    Thank you for the pedometer goodie. I have a step counter on my watch, a Garmin, and find it very helpful. My husband likes to outdo me in steps each day, but I have the advantage of being much shorter and having shorter steps. But he usually gets more steps in anyway. emoticon
