Wish I had a watercolor of this photo from our trip on HWY 1.





Taken in April 2011, around my highest weight ever.





About 35 down. Just in from exercising, sorry about the hair and tired look, lol. :) Oct 2012



I have 10 pics in my gallery

The Page Where Life is Happening!

I am a Christian, happily married, mom to 5, musician, and a MK Independent Beauty Consultant. I am busy with changing my sedentary lifestyle to a more active one, eating a healthier diet, and having fun while doing so... time to quit looking at numbers on a scale and to start living life and enjoying it as I make healthy changes for me!

This is my time.
It is time to focus on my needs
not to ignore others,
but to stop always putting myself last.

This is my time.
It is time to focus on my needs
not to ignore others,
but to stop always putting myself last.

This is my body.
It is the only body I have,
if I don't take care of it now,
when will I?

This is my desire.
The desire to break the chains
of those habits holding me down.
To be free, to soar.

This is my life.
There are a myriad of ways to live it.
The choice is up to me,
And I am determined to live it healthily.

SparkPoints: 44,383

Fitness Minutes: 25,946

My Goals:
To get to know God in a more intimate way.
To get down to a "normal" BMI.
To "find" myself as I transition from full time mom to an empty nester.
To recapture my dreams and live my life to the fullest.
To be able to run a 5K again.

My Program:
When I started my healthy lifestyle journey my weight was 286 pounds, and I was completely sedentary. Much of the food I was consuming was fast food or packaged prepared foods, and other quick and easy choices. The first thing I did was to cut out most of my fast food consumption. Next I added in drinking more water. Finally I added in exercise to the equation (thanks to Spark Guy and his "you can do 10 minutes" concept) Now I am down almost 30 pounds, and a few sizes. I love the energy I have, and the ability to do so many more things!

I am currently following the Whole 30 food plan. My desire is to jump start my body into healthy eating, to get over some of the illness issues I have with food, and of course, to lose some weight in the process.

I am going to live my life to it's fullest extent, I am going to get off the sidelines and start playing again.

Hi Becky. That's horrible about your neighbor shooting your cat. What a miserable example of an "inhuman" being. I'm so sorry! Anyone ever hurts one of my cats they will be one sorry individual. My cats all stay indoors.

As far as being the leader of the WW team, that was kind of by accident. LOL. I will see where I go with it though. I am a lifetime member of weight watchers. It's a phenomenal program. I have pretty much kept my weight off for years, but I am about 5-7 pounds up from my goal weight that I am struggling to get off. I do the points program. I was team leader of on the scale again but gave it up because I couldn't get anyone to participate in anything. So many people join a team and you never see or hear from them again. Vicki
