My name is Laurie and I joined Spark People with my sister, Tamie on June 26, 2006. We can't wait to get started, and start losing fat.

I am 51 years old and 6' tall, and my start weight is 260. My first goal is to get down to 180 by April 5, 2007, then I will set a new goal hopefully. I am really excited about losing the weight, and have already started an excercize program. I am 50 years old, married with two boys ages 20 and 17.

I am glad I joined Sparks, and KNOW I will be successful. I am on my way to being FIFTY-ONE AND FABULOUS.

Member Since: 6/26/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goal is simple. I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I am tired of being tired and run down all the time. I think I am now heading down the right road.

My Program:
I joined Fit Zone which is a local gym club for woman only and have been going religiously almost every day. I am more motivated than ever to lose this weight. I have already lost 35 pounds since August of 2005 just by excercizing. I can't wait to get off work so I can go. Excercizing not only helps with your weight loss, but it also helps clear your mind and relieve the stresses of every day life. I love it.

Personal Information:
I live in Michigan in a suburb of Detroit. I have lived in Michigan all my life. We had a recent life change though. My husbands place of employment closed due to the economy so he now has a job in Circleville, Ohio. He lives with his sister in Columbus, and I only see him on weekends. It is working out, but I really do miss him.

Other Information:
I am a left over Osmond fan from the 70's. I followed them around as a teen, and now as an adult I finally have met them and work for them. Actually I work for Jimmy Osmond on his website, and Alan Osmond on his. My favorite Osmond has always been Merrill who was the lead singer of the group. Are there any more Osmond fan's out there like me?

    Hello. !! I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
    I wanted to take this oportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
    It is a forum that my wife (ticklemepink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability.

    The link is located on my sparkpage, and the main discussion room is still named "disabiltiies group".
    I was noticing some successes here on your page, and that is what the forum is all about.
    People post their successes in life, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, and there's even a thread for jokes.

    I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room, & maybe share some of your own successes, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

    We hope to welcome you! (PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people congregate"!! )
    I hope you will click the tab that says "sparkmail" if you need any questions answerred, and either sparkmail myself, or Carol. We are willing to help.

    Michelle pictured here. and daughter Lael Amelia are doing fine, baby is getting prettier everyday. Michelle sisters, Jeanna and Paula, are excited about becomming a real Aunt. This child has more foster Aunts and Uncles than any child I know. The Churh brothers and sisters have taken Michelle under their wing, after baby father started presuring Michelle to adopt the baby out. This was a long, stressful pregancy for Michelle. She Seeked out a lawyer. That made her feel much better. We are all truly, over joyed about this baby. Much love, from her family and friends. She doesn't know if the babies father will be apart of the childs life or not.

    Have a good day and weekend.

    I love your new picture, such a happy smile!

    As you can see, by my new users name, I am a Grandma! Sunday August 13, at 8:32 a.m. My daughter Michelle labored 6 hard hours, giving natural birth, not extra bleeding or tairing. baby and mother are fine. This little baby will be much loved. The whole family will be raising her, the church thinks that the baby belongs to them also. Michelle is much loved by the sisters and brothers at her church.

    I went shoping last night. Was fun. bought, several T shirts and a halter with leash, for allowing the baby to walk with out Michelle holding her hands. A safety thing. Will send pictures once I get my scaner set up and ink bought.
