Get started as if you are motivated. Pretend. And the motivation will come!

Member Since: 7/29/2007

Fitness Minutes: 147,733

My Goals:
I would like to lose about 25 lbs. However, I do not want to focus on the number.

1. Eat a more plant based diet.
2. Eat more fiber - over 35 grams per day
3. Move every day



My Program:
5% Summer Challenge (2019) Exercise Commitment

Aim for 60 minutes of weight bearing exercise per day per doctor's instructions.
Swim one day a week, usually Thursday.
Aim for 15-20 minutes of Yoga per day.

5% Summer Challenge Nutritional Plan

Incorporate more calcium rich foods into diet per doctor's instructions.
Track food and measure foods instead of estimating portion size.
Continue to aim for 35 grams of fiber a day.
Aim for 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables.
Stay within calorie range 1500-1700.
Eat until 80% full,
Weight Loss Goal - 9 lbs.



Personal Information:
I am 58 this year. Five years ago I had a hysterectomy and four years ago I had knee surgery. I have put on some pounds. I do believe that the hysterectomy has thrown all I know about eating and weight loss out the window. What I used to do in not working anymore.

I work as an accountant in a CPA office so much of my day is sitting in a chair. As I get older I have noticed more aches and pains. As I age I want to be active so I can travel and enjoy life. My parents are home bound and I can see their struggles. I do not want that for myself.


Other Information:
I have two dogs. Corkie and Maximus.

I am married to a retired firefighter. We have been together 36 years.

    Things change, people change, but you will always be you, so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone. Zayn Malik
    Be Yourself
    Good advice for your Tuesday; never lose sight of who you are and of your values. Live them, don't be what you feel other people want you to be, be yourself!
