I am Adrienne from the San Francisco bay area. I've been married over 40 years to my loving husband, Mike, and we have 2 successful sons, Greg and Jeff, two lovely daughter in laws and four adorable grandkids with the latest #4 my first granddaughter born on 6/4/2018 Wahoo! My banner picture is my friends and I snow shoeing in the Sierras. I'm the one with the turquoise hat.

I reached my ultimate goal of 128 lbs on 3/20/12. I'll remain under 127 lbs for the rest of my life with a belly that will let me wear a bikini again.

Member Since: 6/30/2011

Fitness Minutes: 255,402

My Goals:
New goal: Stay between 123 an 127 for the rest of my life- one day at a time! I'm on track. On maintenance for over five years and still counting.

Lose 20 pounds by Nov 24, 2011- missed it by 5
Get to 130 by 3/31/2012.
I did it! 128 lbs on 3/22/2012 and still going strong

My Program:
Walking much more. Doing Spark fitness program and eating healthier with less calories I recently joined a fitness center called Active Age. I go every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a strength and fitness class. I feel stronger every day.. After sticking with them for 3 years I wanted a challenge so I joined Orange theory. I'm probably old enough to be a mom to most of the participants but I keep up okay

Personal Information:
I'm Adrienne and I grew up in beautiful New York City. I've lived in Yuma Az. but since I've lived in California longer than anyplace else I consider myself a California native.

Other Information:
I love to read, sew, quilt and watch movies which is probably why I struggle keeping my weight down but this time I feel like I'll be able to stay slim for the rest of my life!

    I saw in my Friend feed that you had posted a new recipe, so I clicked to check it out. It looks beautiful; I can't wait to try it. I'll post a review when I do. I just tried Stepfani's quinoa, black bean casserole. It's quite good. Will last a few days too, and that's good this week--I'm super busy. Finals coming up soon.

    Thanks. It was delicious. We belong to a Community Supported Agriculture farm. They give us a bag a week of mixed braising greens. I don't even know what we got but it was great!

    Hey, that's a nifty looking recipe you shared (your picture?) What kind of greens did you use, kale? It sounds yummy--I'll try it as soon as I'm back in my own kitchen after the New Year :)

    Hi Adrienne. I see from your spark page we like the same things -- reading, sewing and quilting. I made a pact with myself that I will only read while I walk on the treadmill. So I get a lot of walking done emoticon

    Let's have a great time - go Clovers! emoticon
