2015 is here!

I am looking forward to continuing towards my goal of a lower weight and becoming more fit.

One of my passions is breast cancer awareness and raising funds for breast cancer prevention. My best friends 24 year old daughter, Ashley, has stage IV breast cancer and I hope eventually no one will have to go through what she has. I have had many other friends and patients with breast cancer also and one day we will end it!

My NOVA Sparkers team is AWESOME and I've enjoyed our monthly meet ups and our team doing races together. You guys are the best! You all helped me go from barely walking to being much more active and completing races!

The Ruby Teams are also awesome! The motivation and support with Rootin' for Ruby is unbelievable. I was lucky enough to meet a group of Ruby-Lites a few years ago and it's a day I will never forget!

I'm a 51 year old female, trying to lose weight and get healthier and more active. I lost 50 lbs in 2009, but I have about 30 pounds left to lose to reach my goal. Would love to find friends to share struggles and triumphs with.

I have really enjoyed being involved on Spark People and meeting so many wonderful people both online and in person!

I am a HUGE Washington Capitals fan and Washington Redskins fan. Unfortunately, neither team has done well as of late, but they are still my teams!

The Blue Moon, A Full Moon that happens twice in one month, is a reminder that life is precious.
Love whenever you can.
Remain grateful.
Focus on the magic and beauty that exists all around you.
And remember we are never truly alone.

You know, cutting rock and mountain is a slow work. Sometimes it looks as though nothing is happening.
Speaking the sureness of this work is a must, keeping us focused on this truth rather than what we do not see happening.

Oh, to trust that inner voice rather than the doubt! Speak, speak, speak – let the echoes resound and fill us to full and echo again!

Keep pushing - never give up!

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

I believe in YOU, so remember to believe in YOURSELF!!!
