My name is Karen, I'm 70 years old, and I'm DONE being the fat girl! My highest weight ever was 250 lbs. I started my Spark journey in Oct. 2010 at 230 lbs and lost 80 more lbs down to 150. Gained a few of those back to 158 but as of March, 2020, I'm down to 142. My goal weight is 137.

Dieting doesn't work for me, but eating healthy foods and moving a little more does, so that is my plan. I am so thankful for SP and those here who share this journey to health and fitness! Welcome to my page - please leave a note to let me know you were here.

Fitness Minutes: 112,367

My Goals:
A permanent lifestyle change with more fruits and veggies, more activity, less junk food. Moderation, NOT deprivation!


My Program:
1000 to 1300 calories a day. Walk 2 to 3 miles outdoors, or indoors with a Leslie Sansone DVD, or use my recumbant exercise bike, at least 5 days a week.

I'm a FitBit Versa user. It motivates me to keep moving and reach my step goal of 7,000 steps a day.

Personal Information:
I live in western NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and a 6-year-old housecat named St. Pat. I'm blessed with a husband of 51 years who loves me no matter what. We are enjoying his retirement since October 2014. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 16-year-old daughter.

I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.


Other Information:
A favorite pastime is crocheting. It's relaxing and helps me to keep my mind off food. I belong to a local knitting/crochet group that meets monthly. We donate the items we make to local charities. Love to do online jigsaw puzzles and word puzzles.

I enjoy country music, especially the older music, and also southern gospel music.

I love to read, and am addicted to my Kindle Fire. My reading interests include a variety of fiction genres and depending on my mood, non-fiction historical books, and inspirational. I read 50+ books a year.

    Thanks for the support on my weight loss. I sure wish it was actual weight loss though and not weight loss from gaining 10 lbs so far this year along. Sigh...still its the right direction again and gives me hope.

    Happy Friday! Look what the cat dragged in – me! We are ending the week here on a sunny note, and I'm feline fine. Thank goodness because it’s been raining cats and dogs here for the last week! I hope you all are feline fine today.
    Have you guessed what today’s jokes are about? Well, it’s time to let the cat out of the bag, and cat this show on the road! In case, you're still wondering . . .
    I'll let the cat outta the bag . . .
    I hope you think these are just purr-fect:

    What is a cat’s favorite car to ride in?
    A fur-rari

    Did you hear about the cat who swallowed a whole ball of yearn?
    She gave birth to an entire litter of mittens.

    What’s a cat’s most important trait?
    Its purr-sonality, of course.

    What does a cat think when it looks in the mirror?
    I’m paws-i-tivly a diva!

    How do cats like to shop?
    In Catalogs

    Why does the cat sit next to the computer?
    It’s keeping an eye on the mouse.

    What do you get if you cross a cat with a lemon?
    A Sourpuss

    I hope you thought these jokes were the cat’s meow! Have a wonderful weekend!
    Bye bye for meow . . .
