To Flourish - "to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way".





Member Since: 4/1/2011

Fitness Minutes: 277

My Goals:
I want my senior years to really be my "golden" years!

I want to be a healthy weight and have grace and balance.

I want to be able to fit in seats again; whether it's on a plane, a hockey arena or a theatre.

I don't want to feel pain walking and I want to be able to take stairs normally.

I want to be able to kneel down and garden.

I want to be a success story so that I can be an example to other survivors of CSA who struggle with food addiction as a result of that abuse.



My Program:
I followed the 17DD for 4 rounds in 2011 and lost 50 lbs. Now I'm taking those principles of carb cycling and clean eating and doing my own thing.

I also learned that - "I can do it". It takes constant vigilance, but it's doable.

Recently started Keto and IF (Intermittent Fasting). Haven't really made much progress in the last few years but this is a new decade and I'm determined.
I also learned that a sensitivity to gluten was a major roadblock in my previous weight loss efforts. I would never have learned that without the 17DD.




Personal Information:
I'm from upstate NY, married, no children. We have two dogs and one cat all rescues.
I have fibromyalgia/CFIDS. I'm very into organic gardening and like to travel. My husband and I have a small travel trailer. I'm an avid reader (fantasy fiction, psychology books and mysteries). I like New Age, classical and oldies music, and am very into meditation and mindfulness practice.
My DH and I are both retired.


Other Information:
I believe in the power of the individual to create their own reality.

Anything on MBSR - Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction by Dr. Jon Kabbatt Zin is well worth checking out if you suffer from chronic pain like I do.

    Hi Gabby, I just wanted to stop by and give a great big welcome for the RVers. I am fairly new to the team also. They are a great group of ladies. Hope you come often where we can get to know you. I am celebrating because I just broke out of the 300's, never to see them again, today at WII. So we both have a long journey ahead of us but we can do it. emoticon

    Thank you for visiting my Spark Page and for leaving
    the lovely comments.

    Visualization is a major part of Jon's approach. He
    even offers a free download of his evening meditation
    with his book. It was very helpful to me in actualizing
    my intentions.
