I'm happy to be a member of SparkPeople. I'm here for motiviation and support. I have a chronic illness that I discovered the hard way. It caused to me to lose a drastic amount of weight several years ago; I chose to control it through diet which led me to exercise vs. the traditional steroid and drug therapy. Once I learned to live with the illness, and learned what the triggers were, I now know how to take care it. Now, several years later, some of the weight has come back! Not nearly what I was struggling with for the majority of my life, but enough that it bothers me. So, here I am... I need to get my mind back in shape in order to get my body back in shape! I'm much older now, so I think I'm going to need help. :)

Member Since: 1/12/2008

Fitness Minutes: 4,316

My Goals:
I'm looking forward to losing the few pounds that I've gained over the last couple of years. Gaining weight is worse on my mental state and buget than it is on the waistline. I've learned to accept my body for what it is and who I am, but it still doesn't change the fact that my clothes are getting tight and I cannot afford to replace my entire wardrobe!! So, until I drop the pounds - I'll be uncomfortable in my suits. :(

My Program:
I do not make (New Year's) resolutions - but I do set goals. I plan to make a real effort to eat better and take care of myself more. I don't have a complicated plan to improve my health - ultimately losing the 15 or so pounds that I would like to shed. I know from experience, that accepting myself is the basic foundation to feeling better - emotionally, physically and mentally.

Personal Information:
I am a happily married mother of two (step) sons. My husband and I own a couple of small businesses. I have a full time job as a leader in my community, which is fabulous, stressful and everything in between!

I am a shopping fiend with a special fondness for shoes and purses. I love to bargain hunt and am known to flaunt any good deal or 'steal' to anyone who'll listen!

Other Information:
I love to cook, bake and create things. I have extensive experience in event planning and non-profit fundraising - which is my passion. You can do so much good in the world by just giving a little bit of your time.
