I am such a work in progress - I turned 50 (again) and I'm back to SparkPeople (again)! Some things never change (except my weight). I could describe myself as being a "hot mess" since menopause really has tested my limits, let me correct that, it's really peri-menopause since this crap hasn't stopped yet. Sooooooooo here I am again. Thank you for your continued support (esp. Hickok and Mamishel) during my silent spell... I was watching and listening just not really present. I'm ready to rock this thing (again)!!

My Goals:
I'm really doing this for my health. I pay attention to numbers and at my last doctor's visit, my numbers were not good. My goal is to get the numbers back to a healthy point: weight, BMI, cholesterol and get out of the pre-diabetic range!

My Program:
If you eat it, you need to count it! Count the calories, count the carbs, count the sugar (in all its forms), count the exercise minutes and count the calories burned!

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. The weather in the Bay Area is NOT to my liking at all. I am happy to be in sunshine and look forward to the summer! I've carried extra pounds most of my adult life. I've tried just about every weight loss program short of having surgery. Now I'm doing it on my own with the help of SparkPeople and the support of a million plus Sparkers!

Other Information:
It IS possible to make positive lifestyle changes that become second nature. I am still a work in progress working toward my own perfection.
