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 :-)

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Giving of An Apple emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
    Her Mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile:
    “Sweetie, could you give your Mom one of your two apples?”
    The girl looked up at her Mom for some seconds,
    then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other.
    The Mom felt the smile on her face freeze.
    She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
    Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her Mom, and said:
    "Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."

    You can't judge me until you know me.
    You can't underestimate me until you challenge me.
    You can't talk about me until you talk to me!

    Past~~Present~~Future

    Past is Experience.
    Present is Experiment.
    Future is Expectation.

    So, better use your experience
    in your experiment to meet your expectation.
