My name is Karen, I'm 70 years old, and I'm DONE being the fat girl! My highest weight ever was 250 lbs. I started my Spark journey in Oct. 2010 at 230 lbs and lost 80 more lbs down to 150. Gained a few of those back to 158. Reached my goal weight of 138 in June 2020.

Dieting doesn't work for me, but eating healthy foods and moving a little more does. I am so thankful for SP and those here who share this journey to health and fitness! Welcome to my page - please leave a note to let me know you were here.


Member Since: 10/21/2010

Fitness Minutes: 112,723

My Goals:
A permanent lifestyle change with more fruits and veggies, more activity, less junk food. Moderation, NOT deprivation!


My Program:
1000 to 1300 calories a day. Walk 2 to 3 miles outdoors, or indoors with a Leslie Sansone DVD, or use my recumbant exercise bike, at least 5 days a week.

I'm a FitBit Versa user. It motivates me to keep moving and reach my step goal of 7,000 steps a day.

Personal Information:
I live in western NY, near Buffalo with my husband, our adult disabled son, and a 6-year-old housecat named St. Pat. I'm blessed with a husband of 51 years who loves me no matter what. We are enjoying his retirement since October 2014. Our daughter lives nearby with her husband and 16-year-old daughter.

I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.


Other Information:
A favorite pastime is crocheting. It's relaxing and helps me to keep my mind off food. I belong to a local knitting/crochet group that meets monthly. We donate the items we make to local charities. Love to do online jigsaw puzzles and word puzzles.

I enjoy country music, especially the older music, and also southern gospel music.

I love to read, and am addicted to my Kindle Fire. My reading interests include a variety of fiction genres and depending on my mood, non-fiction historical books, and inspirational. I read 50+ books a year.
