Hi! Thank you for visiting my page...

I'm a vocalist/performer. I have neen performing on cruise ships most of my career.

I am now a size 14 or so. For performers like myself, that is too much weight for the stage. I'm wearing costumes to hide the "blubber". I've been gaining & gaining through the years & I'm here to put a stop to that & change the way I live. To follow a healthier life style. To be strong & healthy.

Hi! Thank you for visiting my page...

I'm a vocalist/performer. I have neen performing on cruise ships most of my career.

I am now a size 14 or so. For performers like myself, that is too much weight for the stage. I'm wearing costumes to hide the "blubber". I've been gaining & gaining through the years & I'm here to put a stop to that & change the way I live. To follow a healthier life style. To be strong & healthy.

I'm very active on stage and would love to remain active for a while. I want to go back to 135 pounds and at least a size 10, preferably a size 8. But I understand I need to make realistic goals while leading a healthy life style.

There have been so many changes in my life of late, including family issues. But I must remember that even so, I must take care of myself. There's an old saying in my family... "You must stay healthy, so as to continue to fight the battles." In other words, if you keep putting everyone else before you, you have nothing left for yourself. Sometimes you may gain weight or get ill, etc. If you take care of yourself, you'll be healthy in all ways to be able to support & assist others. It's all about finding the balance.

I decided to take this journey with Spark People because nothing else is working. Especially on my own. Usually I start off with exercise & watching what I eat. But the motivation only last two weeks. And I'm not home enough to have meals delivered(all other diet programs), etc. I just want to feel more energy, look & feel better.

So far, I've enjoyed the support from all SP members & all the articles. And now I am a full time Zumba Instructor. I got certified two years ago in case the singing work slowed down & it did. I'm loving it! Very passionate about it & it keeps me fit!

This is the first time I've put up a blog & I'm actually enjoying it!!!

Hope you're having a fun summer! I've been MIA from Spark in July, but I'm determined to have a better August. I, too, have been missing my Spark friends

Happy Tuesday! Hope your summer is going well. Enjoy the opportunity for outside fitness fun - hiking, swimming, gardening, etc. This is a great time of year to burn those calories outdoors!

Press On!

Hi:
Thanks for your note, and be sure that we are all in support of your weight loss efforts. Where are you traveling in Europe? Our son has lived in Germany (Heidelberg) for the last 10 years. He's coming back to the states in a few weeks for a one year stint at the Pentagon - blessings, Larry - emoticon
