My name is Fredielyn and I am a mother of two grown children and a grandmother of two. I live just outside San Francisco, in Marin County. I love art and have a business of interior design. I redo rooms in homes using what my client already owns. I just re-design creating a fresher and updated look. I have been on SparkPeople since early February 2, 2015. As of August 2015 I have been weighing in at 119 lbs; I lost a total of 51 lbs. I have been on maintenance now for over 3 years.
My hope is to inspire sparkers to live life to the fullest! It isn't just about eating less and moving more. It is about living life on life's terms. It is about how you deal with emotions. It is what to do when a curve ball strikes and you are overwhelmed. Dealing with the truth without overeating is what makes losing weight successful. Best of luck everyone! ;o)

Member Since: 2/9/2015

My Goals:
My goal is just handling maintenance the rest of my life. That's the deal now.

My Program:
Though I do leg and core exercises at night; I take very long walks every day of the week. I am also active all day long. I eating clean, loads of veggies, protein and try to drink a lot of water.

Personal Information:
I am a native San Franciscan and now live 20 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County.I volunteer for Hospice at their resale boutique once to two times a week. I am also a member of a sorority where we assist needy and handicapped children and young adults.

Other Information:
I thrive on being creative. I have completely decorated the cottage that I live in now reflecting the gift I have with an artistic eye. I love my profession to make my clients dreams come true by re-organizing (de-cluttering) and re-decorating.

    Well, we don't have quite as many opportunities as you do in California but they do make most of it pretty easy. They could use a few more places to recycle electronics, oil (for your car) and propane bottles. We have a collection of those things that need to be taken all the way to Bloomington (about 50 miles from us) but they will get there eventually! Have a great day.

    Yes, I totally agree. Daisy is such a large part of our life. Unfortunately I think there are a lot of places who don't seem to get that. It's still hard for me to find places to stay when we travel with her!

    So glad to hear you eat a small amount of carbs. In my heyday I was model thin but ate 0 carbs but never felt right. Much older now I feel healthy but my weight is not. I really have to examine the amount of certain types of carbs I eat. Your opinion is important because I think you look GREAT! Yes it is a lifestyle. I like reading what the people here eat especially if they are normal weight and active.
