A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I saw THE SPARK online at Amazon and bought it on impulse. I read the whole book cover to cover and here I am. I finally decided to get busy and begin my own Spark program. I was a the Doctor and her scale diagnosed me at as a hefty 192 pounds and I am 5' 3". I knew I had become extremely inactive, and I felt guilty about that. I needed a change, so I came here. That was several years ago, and I have been coming and going ever since. Now I am more determined than ever to make a go of things.

Fitness Minutes: 1,083

My Goals:
--Consume a healthy, balanced, healthy diet, low in fat and tasty without refined flour or sugar.
--Make at least 10,000 steps a day (just starting out at this point) on my fitbit. Doing this by walking, biking and doing aerobic exercise.
--Come to Spark to commune with others with similar goals for fellowship and friendship.

My Program:
Since beginning in January of 2016, I started at 202 pounds, now I am at 166 pounds as of 9-4-16. I eat no white foods: Flour, sugar or potatoes. I eat lots of fruit and vegetables, no cheese, 3 cups of skim milk a day, a moderate amount of lean protein, and as little fat as possible. I use a fitbit, and have just begun exercising--walking, biking and dancing aerobically daily. I target for at least 10 K steps per day.s

Personal Information:
I'm from Bolingbrook, Illinois, I was raised in the area, and have lived here my whole life. I'm not married, never have been. I have no children, but I have a niece and a nephew, who are my pride and joy. I also have a kitty: my big boomer, Brego Yoder.

Other Information:
I have several challenges to overcome. I have bipolar disorder. I am in recovery from alcohol addiction, sober since 10-21-2006. I have tumors in my abdominal cavity which are inoperable which cause chronic pain, which is being managed medically. I do my best to accept these conditions as best I can: Life on life's terms. One day at a time is the only way to go.
