I live in Iowa; I knit, spin, weave, sew. If it has fiber I am all over it. Except for quilting and baskets; not enough time in the day.

In the fall of 2016 I decided I was old enough to be a "little, old, blue-haired lady" and had it dyed. Dearly Beloved likes it so it has stayed.

SparkPeople was off my radar for a long, long time. But after finding a new way to go I am using it again. In April 2012 I reached my first goal of losing 60 pounds and have been at maintenance ever since. Which is not quite true. If you talked with my coach I was maintaining. But I gained weight back. Right now I am not 160 but 200. It was four years returning but it returned and now I am working to take it back down without the program I used in 2011-12.

According to BMI and current weight charts (which are totally inaccurate and illogical) I was still counted as obese at 161. But right now I do not feel as good as I could. Sooooo, on the trail to lose what I have gained and perhaps go a bit lower to see how that feels.

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to limber up and gain more stamina. The fact that pounds drop off is an added benefit.


My Program:
I have added more walking; taking the stairs going up. It is bumpy going with being consistent with weights.



Personal Information:
Grace
Iowa City, Iowa
Enforced retirement in February 2017 which makes me very happy for a number of reasons: 1-more time with DB; 2-able to walk more and not be tied to an office; 3-fibre related things, creating, conferences, etc.; and 4-be outside.

Find me on Ravelry as tully; Instagram as gtullyrav; and Facebook Grace Tully to see what is going on day to day.


Other Information:
"Make it work" has become a talisman for me. Many times I want to walk away but Tim G's voice in my head will not let me and so I go back into the fray to try and make it work.

    In every culture throughout time there have been saints, mystics, sages, shamans and prophets who have come to the same conclusion: all things in this world are deeply interconnected and ultimately are only diverse expressions of the one original source energy. Dr. Jonathan Ellerby

    . . . say “I love you” to all the people in your life whom you care deeply about and do it often. You might assume . . . people know you love them, but this is much different than speaking the words. Andrew Schrage

    There are 2 main questions you must ask yourself: were you able to bring joy to others? . . . were you able to find joy yourself? If you can answer (yes) to these 2 questions, you can deem your life a success Andrew Schrage
