"[This journey] is not about achieving perfection. It's about achieving a mental and physical TRANSFORMATION. It's about optimizing your strengths, navigating around your vulnerabilities, and goin' for it! ...There can never be, and should never be, perfection in a living thing. There is nothing human about perfection, nothing to endear or inspire." PAMELA PEEKE



"Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad? DR. JASON FUNG

If you can identify with the above statement even a little, you need to watch this series of videos. They changed my life, and they can change yours, too:

...and, if you are interested in healing your metabolism to the point of not having to worry about your weight again, then read this 28-part, and counting series (HINT: starvation mode is a lie that keeps you fat):

Member Since: 1/9/2008

My Goals:


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

- 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 55 years old, married 16 years to my very best friend and biggest supporter, and mom to a most amazing 11 year old daughter. I live in central Canada.

For the beginning of my journey, and for personal details see:

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 -

"Justification and rationalization are only mental masturbations - in the end, you only screw yourself."
- GMACAMI -

"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we really grow up."
- JOHN MAXWELL -

"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of; the hell with sugar and spice."

    Screw starving ourselves fat and being held prisoner by our scales.

    Here's to our health!

    When you CHOOSE your perception, participate in your own rescue, and love yourself enough to allow the experience to educate you, you will grow by leaps and bounds! Colette Baron-Reid
