What a blessing that we have Spark People. Thanks to Chris for creating this wonderful site!!

It's me time in my life now. I have two grown kids. And a dog I love. A couple of cats and a kid in grad school round out the house. I am back in school, and just about finished with my associate degree. I like to play guitar and sing. It's time for me now. Time to be healthy, happy and fit.

In the past I have set weight goals for myself and have not met the numbers. This time is different. My goal is to get to a place that feels right. I'm not really starting over. It's a new year, a new day, and time for a new me.


Member Since: 12/10/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,864

My Goals:
Brand new year earns me a fresh start:
With the help of Zumba, get to a nice weight that feels right for me.

With the help of eating healthy, get to a nice weight that feels right to me.

With the help of the workout DVDs I own, do 3 hours a week of fun fitness at home.

Instead of strict goals, this feels right for me to say what I want. It is not a number. Just a feeling. I know how I will feel when I am the right weight.


My Program:
Inspired by Fat Smash. 4 - 5 small meals per day. Tofu, beans and 3 ounces of fish or chicken for protein. Lots of fresh fruit and fresh vegetables.

300 exercise minutes a week.

Stay off the scale except for once a week (Yes, I am a scale addict)

Accept the fact that I will have days when I go off plan. I will move on and go right back to my program as soon as I can

Treat myself with respect and honor myself.

Do not look at myself in disgust and say "You are fat", "You blew your diet", "You are weak".

Instead, treat myself with love and acceptance, and know how beautiful I am.

See myself as lovely, with a pretty face and a nice figure.



Personal Information:
From Chicago, the windy city.

    My pleasure Sandy, and I'm cheating the weather, because I'm down in Mesa, AZ for the holidays. It's quite nice here!

    Re the weight loss: Thanks, I feel great!

    Hi, you may be able to do it because you really don't use your back... you kind of move forward and backward and it doesn't really take that much effort with these hoops because they are heavier and larger and I had on problem keeping it up, I thought I would...

    If you can find a class that would be great, if you could go to a store where they sell hoops and maybe try it out in the store.

    I had a slipped disk, lower back with sciatica radiating down my left leg years ago... I was fortunate enough not to have to have surgery, the disk went back into place with intensive physical therapy that lasted for about a year... I still have to be careful and make sure that I lift things right, etc... so I understand... you do what you think is best... there are plenty of other activities you can do that won't re-injure your back...

    Have a nice evening... ~ Dee
