Hello everyone,

I have been with SparkPeople for 3 months now. My weight loss was slow but is now picking up speed. I am now using my new treadmill. I find that I need high intensity workouts in order to see results. I am trying to eat better also. I stay within my calorie ranch but do not always stick with healthy choices. I am working on that at well as my portion sizes. I had a birthday since being with Spark People. I am now 47 years old. I want to be in good physical shape this is my goal for 2008. I want to regain my healthy weight status that I had 1 -1/2 years ago of 140lbs. I am going to do this and do it right. I have a passion for wellness and I want to live it.

My Goals:
My overall goal is to have permanent lifestyle change and lasting weight loss. I want to feel and look better.
I want to run a 10k race and I want to stay in my former size 8 clothes. I want to be an example for my children.

My Program:
I am trying to keep my calorie intake between 1200-1300. I drink at least 10 glasses of water a day. I am consistantly tracking what I eat. I have eliminated all candies and chew sugarless gum instead. I am working on decreasing my portion sizes. I am working through a bible study progam called the Lord's Table to correct my unhealthy eating habits. I am doing 4 days of Cardio and 2 days of strength training. I am focusing on brisk walking and some jogging.

I live in Philadelphia, Pa. I work in public health and I am a former Labor and Delivery R. N. I am married for the second time. And I am a born again Christian. I practice the Christian Lifestyle. I have 2 grown daughters and 1 teenage son and 3 grandsons. I love health/wellness and always looking for ways to improve.

My favorite pastimes are knitting, reading and listening to music and last but not least praying. My knitting has now become a second job. I work full time doing counseling and education for Hepatitis C. I enjoy educating people about health issues.
