I've been a SparkPeople member off and on for years, but I didn't commit to using the site until January 2013. I am just one of many SP members who recommend never giving up on yourself - even if you just lurk around this site for a long time!

If you want more detailed information about me, you can visit the blog I write about my adventures in getting healthy:

Otherwise, you can learn more about me by checking out (just some of) my goals below, in no particular order. Goals have been KEY for me during 2013! I have them posted online, listed on a poster in my bedroom, and detailed in my journal. I hope some of mine inspire you to create your own.

Thanks for visiting my page, and remember, one small change can SPARK enormous change in your life!

Member Since: 6/11/2012

SparkPoints: 12,160

Fitness Minutes: 7,298

My Goals:
To continually examine and adjust what my body needs to get, feel, and stay HEALTHY mentally, physically, and spiritually.

My Program:
Spending 80% of what I eat on what's good for me.

Drinking a LOT of water.

Exercising every day.

Getting more sleep.

My focus will ALWAYS be health - not weight. I've never cared about my dress size, but I do care about having a heart attack or diabetes.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from San Francisco, living elsewhere now.

I am a writer, although not a published one, and I also love to read. I really enjoy people, road trips, creating art, looking at other people's art, music, and old movies.

I'm also a really, really, REALLY big Bjork fan.

Other Information:
I have lived with Clinical Depression for 15 years, so I truly understand the difficulty of trying to get physically healthy when you're not mentally healthy. Although it has such a stigma attached to it, depression - or any mental illness - is nothing to be ashamed of.

emoticon I just KNEW you were a sister! You have such a kind and beautiful face so I know it radiates in and out. All the best to you in 2014. I lost 30 lbs but gained 7 back and also deal with depression (bipolar). But, as a recent retiree much of my stress is gone and my room mate is a very spiritual sister also. We have two cats. Feel free to peruse my page. Have a great day!
