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 your comment on my Investigating New Exercise blog. I "borrowed" the motivation pneumonic too! I just love it. I have it taped to my bathroom mirror in big full page colorful words. I READ IT every day and sometimes more than one time a day. It has come to mean a lot to me. I call it my recipe for success lol. How often in life do we get instructions to something that is so important to us? Anyway, you keep on Sparking ok? It gets easier and more meaningful the longer you hang out in the community. And the trackers? Well you know I rave about them so I won't go off on that... Spark on sister!
