Hi, my name is Vicki King. My husband and I are missionaries in Germany. I joined Dani's spring challenge earlier this year and surpassed my personal goal by losing 11 pounds! My husband and I had both decided to work harder at losing weight in January of this year. I was so pround of him - he lost over 50 lbs. (unfortunately it set off some gall bladder problems and ended up in him having surgery). But he is feeling so much better. We moved to a new city at the end of August, and so this is perfect timing for me to get back into an excercise routine.
My personal goal for this challenge is to lose 10 more pounds. That would get me down within a few pounds of my ideal weight. I am also right between a size 12 and size 10 and so would like to comfortably wear those size 10 skirts again! Our new house is 3 stories (a row house) plus a basement, so I am getting in lots of stairs now. I plan on doing aerobic excercise at least 5 times a week and weights 2 or 3 times a week. Plus I want to cut out the sugary snacks I was enjoying during the summer months. I will most likely have to have vein surgery on both legs before the end of the year, but hopefully I can meet my goal anyway.
