Welcome to my page. I am back to finish what I started!
Spark people has been wonderful for me.
When I use the tools on this site, I get results. When I don't, I jump back up in weight quickly and easily. I'm annoyed that I have the body type (Endo) that will ALWAYS require me to eat clean and stay active.

About me:
I'm engaged to a great guy who I can't imagine life without. He is my biggest support and encourages me when I need it.
He also can eat whatever he wants, and doesn't gain weight. Boooo to him..haha

I'm a native of Las Vegas, a bit of a nerd and my current and immediate goal is to lose the 50 lbs I gained after a total knee replacement in 2013.

Before knee surgery, I worked very hard to lose 100lbs, over a long period of time. To gain 50 of it back took no time at all. Lesson learned. I don't have the luxury of slacking off.

I love lifting weights and strength training, I study and practice different techniques nearly every day.
Last year, I started studying with the American Council on Exercise. I will complete my certification in 2015. That is a very important goal for me.

I love MMA style fighting and boxing. They are the only sports I watch. I have been lucky enough to get to see live events from time to time. There is nothing like it in person! The energy, the crowd, I love it! I collect fight memorabilia and autographed photos of the athletes. The discipline they show, inspires me. They really know all about focus and determination. Something I can always be reminded of.

I was an addicted video gamer. I played online MMORPG every spare moment of every day and night. I absolutely loved it. I couldn't seem to find a healthy balance, so I stopped playing. This time, I will use me as the character, in my own game of life. I will set challenges and quests for myself to complete. As I complete these challenges and quests, I will reward myself with things that will help me continue on this journey of health and fitness. I wish I had thought of this, but this idea of leveling up my own life came from a website called nerd fitness. The guy who started it and Chris Downie of Sparkpeople, are geniuses in my book!

I really can't wait to reach my goal weight! When I reach it, I will be booking a trip to Ireland and Scotland as they are places I have always wanted to visit. The best reward I can think of for my hard work.

Please feel free to add me as a friend! I'd love to read about you, share stories and work together in our goals!

YOU can do this! We CAN do this ! We WILL do this!

My Program:
My nutrition program is simple. Eat whole, natural un-processed foods. I prefer, and my body responds positively to a lower carb, protein based diet. I feel the most "normal" when eating this way. Its a challenge for me to choose nutrition over convenience at times, but I am trying.

I also enjoy quiet time for myself, meditation, postive thoughts and affirmations and my willingness to continue learning how to be a better human being.

    It is in the moments of decision that our destiny is shaped.- A. Robbins

    Life is filled with decisions and often times the difficult ones involve change. And although change means leaving our comfort zone and working out our problems so we can move forward in continual growth... it can make for learning who we are, an interesting and inspiring journey. Trust in the process. Embrace this part of life, and life will embrace you back•¨¯`💕
