Welcome to my page. I am a 60 year old high school teacher who has an amazing husband,two wonderful sons (40 and 30), and two amazing granddaughters. I joined Spark People awhile ago, hoping to move forward in my quest to be in great shape. I have made progress, but mostly in strength and health. I had always been a healthy eater- both in what I chose and how much. I have felt too heavy for most of my life. Then, I gained 30 pounds over a few months two years ago. After being tested for several possibilities, I was told that the likely cause was stress. I look at pictures from 30 years ago (when I thought I was fat- but wasn't) and I yearn to be the weight that I was then. I am very active and have worked out and dieted for years, but apparently not intensely and consistently enough. I Generally, I have always put many people, my career, and my volunteer activities first. Yet, I know that I need to take my weight goals as a higher priority. I am almost 60 and it's time for me! I want to be able to bike across the country and climb mountains with my husband. I want our retirement years to be filled with our dream activities. So, I better get going!! So, today I start- striving again for intensity and consistency. I am "rekindling the spark" as I move into the towards "60" and looking forward to more noticeable progress by the end of the coming year.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 11 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
