Busy Mom who is finally happy!

Update October 1, 2012-
I am 90 pounds down a feeling so positive!! My goal is to be 150 by my bday on Dec 15, 2012 and I feel I can do it. My program is sumed up in one word "CLEAN". I eat clean (non- process foods), I do daily activity (biking, walking, running, zumba. As well I am trying new things to keep things fun and interesting.

SO far I have tried running (not great but I did it), hulla hooping, cave diving, boot camp, kick boxing, and trampoline.

Update- I had a starting weight of 274 and as of August 2012 I am 194, that is 80 lbs down. I am super proud of myself and I am pushing to hit my goal of 150 pounds by my birthday Dec. 15. I know I can do this. My program is built out of reading a lot of weight loss books, blogs and newsletters, I eat only real food, no lite foods, no shakes, no pills. I do a lot of different activities to keep me moving forward.

I am a Mom of 4 with a part time job and no more excuses. I married my high school sweetheart and we both are blessed with Four beautiful busy kids. We have a 12 year old daughter and then three sons aged 11 , 8, and 6.
Sounds like everything is perfect so WHY AM I FAT?

The easy answer is I eat too much. The real answer is I have never loved myself. I have been the hardest on my looks, abilites, parenting, wife skills and every other aspect of my life.

My journey is about self discovery and an awakening of a beautiful, successful woman that has up until now locked herself in a fat prison.

I am a fun loving Canadian Redneck who is probably the cheapest or most frugle person you have ever met.

I started my journey on my birthday Dec. 15, 2011 and I plan by my next birthday to be dam close to my goal weight of 150 pounds. The biggest change I have been working on this how I think? I need to change all my negative ways and re-learn to enjoy my fantastic life.

I love to chat so feel free to spark mail me or post on my page.

Remeber we ar eall in this together!!

Update August 1/ 2012- I am 195 and I am so happy to be in this new fantastic body. I have a lot more energy and I find I am no longer sore all the time. It's been an amazing 6 months and I could not have done this without Sparks people.

Maria’s Onderland Party is finally here. Friday we are throwing Maria (Fusion Fitness) a dance-a-thon at 6pm Standard Time, Maria’s web page http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=F
USIONFITNESS3 Just cut and paste this address in your browser. So same time as California in the States. She likes music from the 70’s so we will be having a Disco Party. It won’t be a party without great Spark Friends stopping by to celebrate, dance a bit and offer Congrats to her for all her hard work to get to this awesome goal. If you don’t mind bring a Spark goodie with you to share at the party. We will have Video web addresses for the songs we will be dancing to, so everyone can get some fun partying in, and cardio at the same time. It would be great if you can take a picture of your dancing and if you are up for it throwing in some Hippy outfit or maybe just a Peace sign and post it on your page or a blog so Maria can see everyone having fun at her dance-a-thon. John Travolta will be there you can count on that! I am looking for some flower power, maybe even a cool peace sign lol. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all Skype a dance party? Anyway please come if you can and make it a Special time for Maria!! Hugs Susan and Peace & Goovieness

Maria’s Onderland Party!! We are throwing Maria (Fusion Fitness) a dance-a-thon party on Friday Feb. 22nd at 6pm Standard Time, At Maria’s web page. So same time as California in the States. She likes music from the 70’s so we will be having a Disco Party. It won’t be a party without her great Spark Friends stopping by to celebrate, dance a bit and offer Congrats to her for all her hard work to get to this awesome goal. I am giving a week notice so you can save up some spark goodie points if you don’t mind to share at the party. We will have Video web addresses for the songs we will be dancing to, so everyone can get some fun partying in, and cardio at the same time. It would be great if you can take a picture of your dancing and if you are up for it throwing in some Hippy outfit or maybe just a Peace sign and post it on your page or a blog so Maria can see everyone having fun at her dance-a-thon. John Travolta will be there you can count on that! I am looking for some bell bottom pants and some flower power, maybe even a cool peace sign lol. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all Skype a dance party. That would be a blast, but unfortunately not an option yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if that creation was just around the corner. Anyway please come if you can and make it a Special time for Maria!!
Hugs Susan and Peace

Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with blessings!

So we wish you all the best.

Makes us feel that we've been blessed.



So we'll share with you our feelings
At this special time of year:
May your holidays be a delight,
Filled with happiness and cheer.

Thanksgiving – All In A Word

Author: Unknown

T for time to be together
Turkey, talk and tangy weather.
H for harvest stored away
Home, and hearth and holiday.
A for autumn’s frosty art,
And abundance in the heart.
N for neighbors and November,
Nice things, new things to remember.
K for kitchen, kettle’s croon.
Kith and kin expected soon.
S for sizzles, sights and sounds,
And something special that abounds.
That spells THANKS – for joy in living
And a jolly good Thanksgiving!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy Thanksgiving!
