Hi and welcome! I've gone up and down with my weight for most of my adult life and have lost and regained over three hundred pounds collectively. In 2012, I was in a good place, worked out consistently, lost seventy pounds and completed a half marathon which never in my wildest dream would I have thought possible. I was also nine pounds short of being at a healthy weight (which I haven't seen since my late teens), and at my strongest and healthiest than I've ever been. As time went on my old ways set back in again. I don't know if it was out of laziness, complacency, over confidence or all of the above but I gained the weight back and lost my stamina and muscle condition too. Hopefully with the support of SparkPeople I'll regain my determination, commitment and focus to be in the best shape possible. Thanks for stopping by and best wishes for a successful and rewarding journey.

1/2020 - joined the 5% winter challenge with the Rowdy Rebels and my goal is 196 lbs.

Quality sleep (at least 5 solid hours without tossing and turning in between)
Adequate hydration (at least 64 oz water, green tea)

Personal Information:
I enjoy scrabble, jeopardy (when I get 3 in a row I feel like a bad @ss), Stephen King books, jigsaw puzzles, ziplining, horseback riding, poker, discovering yummy fragrances, dancing, OSDM, interior decorating, herbal and naturopathic medicine, and all things bohemian. Currently re-learning spanish, french and eventually japanese for fun and for brain health. I quit smoking twenty two years ago, stopped drinking soda and alcohol six years ago and will be celebrating my 40th wedding anniversary this year (2020).
