"Journal and put your feelings on paper not your fork" Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 210 lb in September 2011. I changed by eating habits by adding more fruits, vegetables, lean meat like chicken and fish. I am doing the Summer 5% challenge I have done the challenge in the past with success while I had fun doing healthy habits, exercising and eating right. Update: I lost 75% of my 5% weight loss on the Summer challenge and now going on to the Fall 5% challenge woohoo August 2020 down to 156 lb from 210 lb, long term goal 135 lb

Member Since: 9/18/2011

Fitness Minutes: 128,393

My Goals:
I wear size 10 jeans and I want to wear size 8.


My Program:
I am doing the Every Other Day Diet by eating 500 calories every other day. I love fresh fruit and raw vegetables. I eat mainly chicken, whole grains and vegetables, with a little cheese.

I exercise by walking almost every where I go. I also am going to an exercise class once a month



Personal Information:
I live in Sacramento Ca with my hubby of 12+ years.

2015-Hubby is also working to lose weight and is helping me stay on track.

2017-after hubby's fall he lost weight while in care homes, he went from 230 to 177 at 6'2". He would only eat a few bites of the meals he was served and also got sick with C-Diff. On coming home, with the help of his VA doctor I got him over C-Diff and he started eating good home cooked meals. He has put back on some weight but is still thin.

    Dear Changing Turtle
    I read your blog on what's happening in your life. So glad you passed that kidney stone, that must have been awfully painful. My husband had a kidney stone and had to go to the hospital. They analyed the stone and it was found that he had to much calcium in his system. He use to drink a lot of milk - now he just has it w/his cereal. I hope you can find out what is causing your kidney stone. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi there, for details on ELAB -- I would recommend signing up for the 3 day challenge and she spells out exactly what to eat. That is what I did and I am almost 20 weeks in, 65 lbs down.

    Good luck!!

    Thank you for reading my blog.
    Reconnecting with Spark has made a positive difference in this very challenging year.
    I'm glad I turned around the Covid induced trend before it got out of hand.
