I look at this person looking back at me in the mirror and I ask her, "Where did you come from?" After marrying my high school sweet heart at the age of 20, I had 4 children and then spent the majority of my energy/life raising them. In the past 3 years we have added two wonderful son-in-laws, gorgeous grandson with two more buns in the oven (one girl, Ryleight Marie and one boy, Nathan Lucas). Prior to my second daughter’s wedding I started to work out by walking/running on the treadmill. I managed to lose 28 lbs. by May of 2010. Unfortunately, I put 8 of that back on last year. With the assistance of SP I have succeeded to lose 15 more lbs. Spark people gave me control and support that I desperately needed at this point in my journey. I want to feel healthy and when I look in the mirror I want to feel good about the person that is looking back at me! This is not a diet it is me making better choices to be healthier. The glass is half full and each day is a new chance.

My Goals:
Lower my calories and workout three times a week!

My Program:
I log, log and log. That is what makes me aware and gives me control.

Personal Information:
I am a woman that wears many hats... I'm a wife, , mother, paraprofessional, cosmetologist, cook, house keeper, mother inlaw and grandmother. I live in upstate NY. After a year of trying to eat better and adding exercise to my week, I was introduced to SP (the first week of Oct 2011). This tool has really helped me to be aware of just how important being healthier is to me. It's a daily struggle against myself but I can do this. Not over night and not even in one year but at my own individual pace. I wish I had done something like this years ago!

Other Information:
The passion of my life has been my family! I am so proud of them all. Life is a work in progress and everyday brings with it a new beginning. Thank God for beginnings!
