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 am also signed up for my 5th 5K!!! From 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 :-)

    HI Moni hon !! How are ya? How do you like being with the TM's? Butterflies are so delicate and PURDY !! Your life resembles a butterfly ! At one point you crawled along,, just doing what you needed to get by, with some habits needing attention. Than you decided to take action,, and like the butterfly you SPREAD UR WINGS and WOW Gal !! Just LQQK AT YOU NOW !! YEAH !!

    Are you the ML? You did such a SUPERB job as the ML for us, I have NO doubt your benefiting the TMs ! I read ur goals and they are RIGHT ON !! I want to wish you the BEST along the journey !!!

    I am having surgery in 2 weeks. The foot got TOTALLY RIDICULOUS !! Had an infection in the bone, thankfully that is cleared up. The ulcer has "cleared" up as in as long as I use my knee water as much as possible ,, NOT walk on it, it's easier, but still. The surgery is to remove the big toe on the left foot. They will make a replacement for it in my shoe. So off it goes and the NIGHTMARE of these past 2 yrs will be OVAH !!! Want to pick me up on your wings,, and we TAKE OFF??? Where would you like to go?

    The boyz must be so BIG Now !! WOOHH

    I just can't believe it's fall,
    the most colorful season of all.
    The leaves they will fall.
    and the weather turns cool
    There's so many reasons
    To enjoy this season.
