I have been away from sparkpage quite a while. During that time I was pregnant with my fifth and last baby! While pregnant I had gestational diabetes and this was a wake up call for me. Diabetes runs in my family on both side and I don't want to be next in developing diabetes type two because of my weight and lifestyle. My pregnancy was a blessing in disguise, because I had to change my way of eating cutting carbs to less than half of what I had been accustomed to eating and no sugar! that was hard but, the best thing was that I lost twenty pounds and had a beautiful healthy baby boy! I feel really good and I feel like I "got this" I can lose the weight and change the way I eat for good.

Personal Information:
I am Puerto Rican, and was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. In 1998 I moved to Hawaii with my husband. He was stationed here (military). We moved back to NY and felt so homesick for Hawaii, we made it our goal to come back and finally in 2005 we did so, here we are! We are happy and loving it with our children.

Other Information:
I really love Canoe paddling, it is a wonderful sport and old tradition of Hawaii. I like going to the gym (if I could get there regularly)!
Love art, museaums, Mac makeup, looking at the moutains, and learning about interesting people, places and things!
