My profile shows a Sparkpeople Start Date of 07/11/07 but believe me when I say that there was no Sparking going on until the summer of 2009. That was when I created this page: I was 52 and I'd had enough of shopping in the fat-lady stores. So, I tried to walk 10,000 steps each day and attempted to make intelligent food choices.

Now it's July 2011: I'm 54 and I'm maintaining a 60-65 lb weight loss. I intend to stay this weight by living a Spark-inspired lifestyle. I may be spending less Spark time online but sticking to a healthy lifestyle is always uppermost in my mind.
It was difficult to keep Sparking, food-wise and exercise-wise in the winter, (even with Charlie the Wonder Dog's daily encouragement) but the good weather is here now and I'm looking forward to increased daily physical activity.

My Goals:
I don't want to be embarrassed by my bulk anymore. I want to get to a weight where I can look at my whole body in the mirror (and not just neck-up) without wincing. I will never again wear clothing in a size that includes an X.

My Program:
Eat More Healthy Food, Eat Less Junk.
Walk More, Lounge Less.

Personal Information:
A proud Torontonian.
