I've been a big girl most of my adult life. I do not know (or remember) what it is like to be fit & trim.
The years of carrying so much weight for so long are finally taking their toll. At my age, weight & genetic disposition...eating healthy & exercising need to become A WAY OF LIFE. There's a lot of life left & I want to live it healthy & fully.

Member Since: 10/24/2007

Fitness Minutes: 41,401

My Goals:
175#s & UNDER
25 on BMI & fat %
Started SPARKPeople @ 290#s

I'm seriously sick of this nonesense. I've been up & down so many times, I'm like a dang teeter-totter! Seems like, just when I get it right, something goes down & I lose it. And, in the meantime, I ain't gettin' any younger.
Eventually I'd like to REACH my goal weight; but as long as I'm eating healthy & getting my fitness in, I can't get hung up by the number on the scale.
Now it's just a matter of actually doing what I need to! ;p

My Program:
I'm fond of Beachbody workouts, LesMills COMBAT, ZUMBA & walking.


Personal Information:
I'm a 47 year-old 'Meemaw' trying to keep up with life & all that it entails. I live in beautiful Northern Utah with my Husbee & work at a nutraceutical and probiotic manufacturer as an A/P clerk. (But my grandkids think I'm a SUPERHERO!)

Other Information:
Things I like but usually don't take time for:
Reading, coloring, & various crafts that I never finish and watching TV with my Honey (I do this one...maybe to excess!).

I'm reading:
