Hi! My name is Moni and welcome to my SparkPage!!! After my second son was born, my weight was out of control. One day reading an article in a Woman's magazine there was a write-up on SparkPeople. I logged on but did not really work the program. Well one day I was fed up with being fed-up and started working the program. My heaviest weight was well over 275 lbs. At first I would drink water. Then I worked on eating fruits and veggies. I would do 10 mins of exercise daily and now I am up to 60 mins of activity. I also sign up for 5K races during the season!!! From a Couch Potato to Walk/Jogging 5Ks!!! I know I still have more work to do but I love the way I feel!! I love that I have energy and I love that I have a smile on my face from ear to ear. If I can do it - so can you. I am working on the new me one baby step at a time. So join me on this awesome journey. You won't regret it!! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Moni :-)

    Showing my teeth as Dawgs do so WELL at the Falcons. I am SURE you know how we feel about the Steelers. It was a PLEASURE watching them being intercepted over and over again. I MUST admit we went CRAZY !!! LOL we had to MUCH FUN !! I keep telling myself "have people over !" But, yet I really enjoy it when we are all in contact, but not all over here. Likely I'd have to pick up a few,,, than bring them home after. Not so sure about doing that.

    How are things going? I am now able to walk AS MUCH as I LIKE !! YEAH !! From June 14 until the start of Nov 16 where such trying times. If the Dr had done as he should of and just removed the big toe (lf ft) ALL would of been HONKEY DOREY ! But, now that's in the past and Moni , I know much you value the freedom to take a step out of the house and just enjoy that you can !! GOOOO PATSSSSS GOOOO !
