I am 49 on the 18th of Jan 2011. I refuse to turn 50 telling myself "this is the year you get it together and become healthy and really live the life you choose" This is the year I will stop this slow suicide I've been on for the past 30 years. I am not a victim. I created this reality and now I am creating my new reality. I have 137 pounds to loose to be under 200 and bout 50 more after that. I am starting this new adventure with my husband Roy, who also has 100 plus pounds to loose. We are doing this and so can you!

Member Since: 1/14/2011

Fitness Minutes: 2,140

My Goals:
I do most of my overeating in front of the TV or in the car to and form work. So my goal is to not eat at all in front of the TV and to not eat fast foods in the car on the way to and from work.I figure that will do it.

My Program:
My plan is to stay present when I eat with what I eat. Just like a smoker. If I have to overeat I will do it with just me and the food. Aware I am stuffing the food in and harming myself. I plan to eat keep it simple. Eat only when I am hungry and stop when I'm full.Just like normal weight people! :-)

Personal Information:
I'm not really comfortable at this time sharing my personal info. If you want to contact me do it via sparks mail and then we can share.

Other Information:
My favorite color is Yellow. I love animals. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats and no kids by choise. We love kids just never felt we would be good parents. ( all our animals are rescue) We just moved back to my home state and to country life from arizona. We lived in the zone over 20 years, I miss it some. But this new life is good!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! How have you been? I'm so swamped with nursing school right now my head feels like it is spinning and I'm constantly feeling like I've forgotten something lol! Can you remember that feeling? I miss Sparking but I know that school will be over this spring and I will be on a new routine where I can catch up with everyone. I hope you are being good to yourself. Be your own best friend!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. This journey has been incredible and Spark Friends and the community were such an important part of it. Posting a blog touting a 50 lb. weight loss was something I used to only dream of. Thank you for being there as my dream came true! Spark on!
    Have a fabulous day!!

    What kept me going was those goal jeans, and being able to shop outside the plus size section. I felt so great I didnt want to stop!

    I'd hate to be camped out at work. It snows in my part of AZ but not very much. Today was cold and windy and sun shining. I don't know if I could ever live anywhere else. I've thought about leaving several times but nowhere else seems to be better. I was born and raised here. And in 54 years I still haven't seen all of AZ. How could leave AZ?
