My name is Gwen and I've been a Sparker since 2007. It's only been in the more recent years that I've taken advantage of all the benefits offered by Spark People.

I have been on some sort of diet/eating plan since I was 13 years old. You'd think by now I'd have it figured out. I know what to do....just gotta do it. A few years ago, I ALMOST reached goal and became complacent. Don't let this happen to you! Now I'm really back at square one as I did not take advantage of staying on track during the summer break.

Personal Information:
I have been married to my Jerry, my husband of 31 years and have 3 biological children (2 sons and 1 daughter). I also have 2 stepdaughters, one of which has 3 children. My middle son has a 2-1/2 year old daughter and a 9 month old son who have stolen my heart. So 5 kids and 5 grands in total.I just have to figure out a way to see them more often as work schedules (mine and theirs) don't line up enough. We will be official empty nesters when our youngest son graduates from college in December. I am a drug dealer (legal as a pharmacist) and as a manager have long hours on the days I work. Having said that, getting in the exercise is sometimes a problem but I know where there is a will there is a way.

    Gwen - One of the things I don't do too often is check in on my Spark page so I've just seen the emoticon workout clothes that you send in celebration of my Capital A Day and weight loss to date! emoticon for your great support. Love flying on the A's with so many GREAT people like you!
