I've been on a constant battle with weight pretty much all my life. . . and after losing 60 pounds with the help of Sparkpeople and becoming a gym rat, I ended up needing surgery on both of my knees. I did get through both my children's weddings before the surgery and the surgery's ended up being 6 months apart. Now I've had a year to recover and gain back 40 lbs, and it's time I got back to a regular exercise routine. After stationary biking since the beginning of December, I finally feel like my knees can take some pounding so that I can get back to walking and the treadmill. I did go the Nutrisystem route for 3 months last summer, and lost 15 lbs, but that food is really tiring after awhile! So I'm ready to get back to life, counting calories, exercising and eating right!! Yay!!

My Goals:
To be a better me! I want to feel better physically ( and mentally! ) and hopefully add a few years to my life!

My Program:
I need to keep going with my exercise goals each day and keep my calories in line. I'm not in this to deprive myself of my favorites, because I know that is not life. I'm learning how to judge what I need to do to make the best me that I can!

Personal Information:
I work at a desk on the phone all day - not good for much activity! I have two adult children who inspire me and a wonderful husband that I've been married to for 31years!

Other Information:
My husband and I love our vacation time and travel in our RV when we can. A couple of my hobbies are gardening, and scrapbooking - and spending time with my family.

    Hey Deb glad to see you're back! Sorry to hear about the knees...replacements?? Anyway, it is definitely difficult to get back full swing, I've been trying to do that for over a year, but thankfully, seem to have finally gotten to that point. It was hard to do the spin, at first, but I've figured out what worked and what caused to much distress...this past week's classes have been awesome since I've made that revelation! Here's looking for continued success for us both!
