Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei or IRISH. I live in Ohio!

Isn't SparkPeople.com wonderful? I really love it and it sure is helping me in my journey. This website was recommended to me when I asked my doctor how I could lose weight. Wow! I am so glad I asked her that question!

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.
In September 2010 when I discovered Spark People and read the book, it really got me motivated to make a decision. I decided I wanted a healhier lifestyle and knew I needed to make a change. I needed to do his on my OWN.
Spark got me going and kicked in and I realized it was up to me to be STRONG and FOCUSED. Motivation is great on this site.

NOW - July 21, 2015 I began a New program on a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. I went to a dietician and wellness doctor. They encouraged me to eat whole grain and healthier meals. I track daily and this plan keeps me going and motivated. I exercise more often now that I am completely retired and that helps too. I believe this is the best plan for me. Hope i can stay STRONG and get to goal in this new journey.

Good morning EI.
