I''m a successful dieter, having lost all my weight many times in my life: from 40 lbs. at a time all the way up to 80 lbs. lost twice. I haven''t been so successful at keeping it off. But I''ve learned from my successes and mistakes, and I know myself and what works best for me. I understand a lot about nutrition and the body''s metabolic processes. I''m still optimistic and persistent and believe that I WILL succeed. This journey is mine alone, and no one else will make my choices for me.

Member Since: 9/8/2008

Fitness Minutes: 10,540

My Goals:
I need to release about 100 pounds of unhealthy fattage from my poor body and reclaim my natural biological weight once and for all. I'd be happy with a 75 lb. loss, but I'm glad to settle in at the weight that my body settles naturally into. I'm anxious to unzip and step out of this horrible fat suit.

My Program:
Ideal Protein. It's easy to stay in ketosis on this lower carb plan. And the money I spent to join is a great incentive to stay on the plan. I have a chronic digestive disorder, and can't eat many veggies. Sad, but true, so I'm modifying my plan and will do my best within my limitations. That's all I can do, after all.

Personal Information:
I'm a homemaker from the weird state of Utah. Happily married for 25 years to a wonderful man. Mom of two beautiful young-adult daughters (now both married!), and a new empty-nester. And now a proud new grandmother!

I love to garden, crochet, read, listen to music, play the piano, banjo, and violin. I am a non-denominational christian and have a deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ.

Other Information:
Favorite books: Organizing, scriptures, Jane Austen spinoffs and sequels, Time-travel, Fantasy fiction, Mystery.

Music: Classical, Bluegrass, music from all the decades. Love Alison Krauss, Dixie Chicks, Nickle Creek, Folgelberg, Moody Blues, Sarah McLachlan, Linkin Park, Evanescence, and Desperado by the Eagles.

Favorite movies: Avatar, Pride and Prejudice (both versions), Harry Potter (but liked the books better), Somewhere In Time, Lord of the Rings, anything epic but not scary!

    Did you ever try to catch fire flies? I used to love to watch them light up the nights (when I was a little girl). My sister said that the fire flies have come back to the old homestead, as they had been gone for decades!
