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!

    Ugh. I would hate to be stranded in my office. I hope you can get back home soon.

    We have tons of cats dumped here too. The neighbors on one side have 3. The other neighbors have at least 6.

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    emoticon Sorry I missed your birthday! I knew we were kindred spirts! I just looked at you and thought you were a sensitive and caring person. Now that I know a little more it is confirmed! emoticon . I finish my ADN in June and have no idea where I want to work. I have a scholarship that says I have to work two years in an underserved area. I also like psych nursing, but worry I am too much of a psych case myself lol, I mean that playfully, but inside not so much you know? Anyway, I am buried in homework this quarter. All the extra time exercising and Sparking is taking studying time I guess. So I have to go, but I look forward to sharing this journey with you. I have confidence in you. If you have any questions feel free to drop me a note, or email if you want privacy. Until then Spark on!

    PS. Maple bars are a rectangular raised donut drenched in maple flavored icing. Pretty common in California and the Pacific Northwest. Guess not so much elsewhere lol!
