I've been doing this for almost 4 years, 4 years! Can you believe that? FOUR YEARS!

I've been trying to diet and get healthy. I've lost 74 pounds. Not bad, just not my only goal.

Before doing Spark People, I got lost a lot! Ate for comfort, ate for hunger, ate for no reason at all and then I would eat because I was depressed about eating and then I would gain weight because of all that eating! Talk about your vicious circles!!!

I started working out at my local Curves and started to see a change as their ads said, just not as quickly as I would have liked. I tried to diet and eat right but it was hard to keep up with that and my kids and jobs and everything else. Spark People has helped me to keep track of everything that I need to be doing, all in one place. What a concept!!!

I'm doing it now though, I'm determined to lose and stay lost. No wait...not exactly what I mean but you know what I mean.

Don't you?

I intend for this to be my year. Mark your calendar... this is officially my year . . . Mary's year to be all that she is and then some. Look out. I gave you fair warning!!

This time when I finally reach all the goals that I mentally set for myself and I become the person on the outside that I've always been on the inside, the world will never know what hit it...nothing serious...just ME!

Slimmer, trimmer, better, stronger, faster, able to leap tall buildings. Maybe the tall buildings part was too much. You know what I mean...this is my year to sing that old Toby Keith song...

HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW...NOW THAT I'M ON MY WAY...

Okay now, everybody SING! How do you like me now...

My Goals:
My goal is to do this stuff on a consistent basis and not get so side tracked that I end up gaining all my weight back. I've lost 74 pounds so far and with the help of the Spark People, I hope to keep it all off.


My Program:
I eat a sensible diet, a vegetarian diet, that is, and work out 7 days per week. I just exercise everyday and most every free minute that I have so I don't forget to do it. I almost always work out at my Curves Fitness Center 3 or 4 times a week, in addition to walking at different intensity levels to keep it challenging and interesting, and I try make exercise where there isn't any exercise, like parking in the last parking space and walking the extra distance to the door of where ever I'm going.



Personal Information:
I'm a carefree mother of 3 grown up children. (At least that's what they tell me. )

I also have a new grandson who hasn't said he's all grown up. (Not yet anyhow!) He's currently trying to get some teeth so I'm sure it won't be long before he starts talking about being all grown up too!


Other Information:
I have a full-time job that I love. I have a part-time job that I also love.
