Some say LIFE BEGINS AT FORTY. Well, I have nearly 2 years and 9 months before that happens. So itís time to get my act together.
Where to begin... I'm so grateful a friend turned me onto Sparks.
Even if all I do is put a specific food in to see how it affects my overall nutrition -- it has been a tremendous help. I'm seeing TRULY what I eat and where I need to make changes.
I want to be able to enjoy my life to the fullest. 40 isn't that far away and I want to be able to have the ACTIVE life I feel I've missed in my teens, twenties and early thirties because of my weight. Iím ready for roller coasters and parachutes. Anyone else? =D Heather

Fitness Minutes: 7,869

My Goals:
I'd love to be able to fit into a size 18-20 again. To see two zeroes in my weight [200, not 300!!] or have my weight begin with a 1 instead of with a 2.
I know losing weight gets more difficult as we age so I REALLY want to do this before I turn 40.

My Program:
Tracking what I TRULY eat is really helping.

Personal Information:
Born and raised in North Carolina. Love to visit other places, but there is no place like home.

History -- lost my mom to lung cancer is 2003; just lost my dad to lung cancer last year [07]. I'm the youngest of 4 -- there is a HUGH age difference between me and my brothers/sister [13, 15 & 20 years!!] Up until this year so much of my life was concentrated on others I [ME] got lost in the shuffle. Time to focus on ME!

I haven't found my 'soulmate' yet, so I have fun with my friends and I am mama to two SPOILED ROTTEN kitties. Love animals and would have more if I had a farm and someone to take care of them for me. LOL I'm getting a puppy as soon as I get a house.

Love to read murder mysteries or comedies; making my co-workers laugh; cartoons; nearly anything to do with animals; generally just being silly; UNC Tar Heels!!

Other Information:
For a great laugh from a Southern woman's perspective, pick up Celia Rivenbark.
