My Goals:

- eliminate 100 - 140 lbs (not really sure what 'normal' for me should look like)... or whatever gets me to 20% BMI... currently I've eliminated 15%!


- be as generous and loving with myself as I am on behalf of others.


- WRITE: because I owe God an answer!






My Program:

* READ/LEARN: to transform my mind. Where my mind goes, my body will follow!


* PARTICIPATION on SPARK People to keep me motivated and moving forward






Personal Information:

I am Ramona! I am 53 years old, married 15 years to my very best friend and biggest supporter, and mom to a most amazing 10 year old daughter. I live in central Canada.

If you really want to know even more about me than is already reflected in my blog, just ask! :)


NOTE: My weight tracker is not a truthful representation of my weight. Instead, I am using it as a tool to help me visualize my goal as though it's already been achieved!

"Lifestyle is unencumbered by obstacles. This means that the things I keep tripping over are something other than obstructive. They are instructive, and part of the directions on my map. Lifestyle is intentional and specific to me. Lifestyle is experiencing, expressing and enjoying every aspect of my life intensely and ardently to the full." - ME -

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE AVOCADO AND THE INFORMATION. RIGHT NOW I AM DOING EXACTLY WHAT I AM NOT SUPPOSED TO BE DOING AND IT HAS GOTTEN NEARLY 100 POUNDS OFF ME. AND MY HUSBAND EATS NONE OF THE THINGS I DO ANYHOW SO IT WOULD BE EASY FOR ME TO TRANSITION TO SOMETHING ELSE. I WILL LOOK INTO IT. THANKS AGAIN.

So excited to have you comment on my status. A glimmer of hope that you will be back sparking soon.

We are have a beautiful streak of fall weather hear and I just do not want to go to work. I also have been feeling off - so I think I am fighting off something. So Fall fever is both good and not so good.

Have you been able to take some time to watch the Women's WL conference?

I NEED my Ramona fix. You've been missing too long. Here is a hug and a promise I will hunt you down if I need to. You are needed here.
