I am now under my WW goal by 7 pounds.


That's because I pick a higher number to cause less stress.

Member Since: 4/26/2007

Fitness Minutes: 82,525

My Goals:
Just to be at a healthy weight and in good shape so I don't end up turning into one of those little short roly poly grandmas someday.

It's a battle.

I started out as an infant on the wrong side of a healthy weight.

My Program:
Guess I should update here more often. I'm not following the low-carb plan. I didn't like the low-carb plan.
Common sense. That's what I'm trying now. After all, those "diets" that are strict really don't work in the long run and the grand scheme of a lifetime.
So, I'm trying to keep everything balanced.

I'm using SparkPeople and the inspiration I get from those here with me.

Personal Information:
St. Clair County is my main homefront. We also have land in da UP N. of Newberry and another home in Atlanta, MI.
I'm married to Steve, have 2 wonderful daughters by a previous marriage.
We have fish in 1 in-house tanks, fish in the pond, and a fat cat named Iggy Thunder,
and Mildred Violet the Dog. We walk outside just about everyday for our exercise. Iggy Thunder - now known as the Fat Cat should join us.
I'm working at Ford Sterling Axle in Sterling Heights as a housekeeping supervisor.
Someday soon I hope to be retired at an earlier age so I can get back to enjoying things I love to do and being able to keep up with all these chores.

Other Information:
I knit for myself and have a shop on Etsy where I'm hoping to sell more of my pieces. It's been slow.
My current reading consists of two rather large books on nutrition that were written by the Mayo Clinic and the Dietetic Association. I did learn that I don't need to buy vitamins since we really don't need the amounts of each vitamin and mineral that we're told. Save some $!

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 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.
