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.

Fitness Minutes: 46,231

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.

    Thank you for your input on my “honest question” blog
    There’s a lot of wisdom here among Sparkers
    "each of them got it into their head that they were X size in McCalls or Simplicity and nothing could change that"
    I know exactly what you mean. I used to make costumes for community theater. One lady insisted she had 38 inch hips and refused to let me measure her. OK, that's what she got.
    When they didn't fit, someone else took her part. Not my problem!
