Hello from MEDFORD, OREGON. My first look at SPARK was Sept 2012 and I've been getting healthier ever since. It's been a slow but steady journey while managing both health and self challenges, but I've come a long way with the help of my SPARK PLAN and SPARK FRIENDs. I've become more self motivated and more self accepting. I'm taking more risks and I've learned to be more assertive in my own beliefs in order to be more successful in my new way of life.

Have a wonderful day!

Start 9/2012 265
1/2013 down 15 lbs 250
4/2013 down another 15 lbs. 235

restarts: (usually after a slack period in my life)
1/2014 gain 8 back -- beware the Holidays ={ 243
6/2014 down additional 15 lbs 220
11/2014 stress eating added 5 back starting family and friends group -- for MOJO 225
1/2015 215
6/2015 blasted new scale, hormones and good food.... back up to 225? must try harder

12/15 256 -- no excuses just life changes and poor choices.
1/16 253 -- recommitted to self, goals and choices. NOW!
2/16 250 -- slow, but steady
3/16 248 -- in the right direction
5/15 246 -- moving forward

one cup of Hersheys dark chocolate coco powder and put in a sauce pan with 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk. add a bit of vanilla and enough stevia to sweeten(using Truvia, not 100% stevia but no calories).... boil and start to thicken it and add one tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken more. then pour into a pam butter sprayed 9 X 4 pan. put in freezer. When frozen and craving a bit of chocolate break off a piece.

My Goals:
My goal is to be the best me I can be for myself, my family and my GOD.

This year my goals include: Doing more for me, taking risks, accepting change and reaching out.

All these things are necessary for me to loose the last 50-60 lbs.


My Program:
My program involves: tracking my moves with a FITBIT Zip and my nutrition with SPARK, running with PODRunner and learning to try new exercise moves.

I don't believe in FAD DIETS and don't like pills or medications.

I believe everything is good - in moderation - so nothing is totally off limits.

I generally follow a 80/20 plan for a healthier lifestyle-- 80-90% of the time I'm focused on healthy nutrition and ways so that 10-20% of the time I can enjoy life without worrying about numbers. (Life happens and this way I don't have any guilt over it.



Personal Information:
Residing in Medford, Oregon.

Born in Kansas and raised all over -- to include Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington and Germany

I'm a US Army veteran and served most of my time in South Korea.

I love my family -- to include 1 husband and 1 cat, 2 children and 3 grandchildren. I love to craft and learn new types of crafts (yarn and thread types mostly, but I also have an interest in paper and children crafts). I work in a high stress, ever changing environment. I want to get into better shape so I can keep up with the wee ones.
