Hello and welcome to my page!

I'm 39 years old and have two beautiful kids, a 4 year old girl and an almost 7 year old boy.

I am so happy that Nightair told me about Sparkpeople! I am grateful because I am seeing myself change... negative habits that have kept me in shackles for years are shifting and falling by the wayside. I have tried everything under the sun and have periodically given up hope that I could ever be a healthy person. But something would "spark" inside of me and I would try again. I'm thankful that this time I am seeing changes that will lead to lifelong healthfulness so I will be able to see my kids grow up and hopefully I'll get to experience the joy of being a grandparent.

One thing I am really excited about is trying new physical activities... being overweight all my life I have NEVER really tried new things... I was always convinced I couldn't do it or I'd look foolish or whatever... but I have already started doing new things and I'm so, so happy about that. I feel very empowered when I can do something I didn't think I could.

Thankfully, my family is very supportive. It's very cute to see my little girl tell me she's "doing her steps' when we are at the park! And my son rides his bike when I walk laps or jog... that's so awesome! And he loves to "enter his food". Even my thin husband is helping out and that means a lot because he's seen me fail so often. I know he may still be doubting I will make it to the end because of my long, sordid history with overweight but he will see the light.

Lots of plans to keep me moving and doing different things each day!!!!

Anyway I have a long way to go on my journey so if you want to chat drop me a line!

Blessings to you today as you work towards a healthier YOU!!!

PS I love this quote that says "Great Results Require Great Ambitions"! How true is that???

I'm also doing some Jillian Michael's videos, Biggest Loser videos, using my treadmill and bowflex and doing the SP strength training program and in addition to all that I'm working on the couch to 5K program, participating in the daily GOYAAM fitness challenge and doing the SP bootcamp.

    Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

    emoticon The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for what ever reason, even though this may never be spoken about openly in the family, but the sensitive Scorpio child picks up on it and learns not to trust others. Scorpio always asks herself "what do they want from me and what is in this for me?" She is sarcastic in order to defend herself and "get them before they get me." It is a self-protection that she learns early. She is not a "team player" but will take her ball and go home and play alone if necessary. She does best working for herself.

    Scorpio is a loyal friend, but she has to be in control. In any love relationship she must run what happens so she needs a partner who doesn't mind this. A nice Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, or Taurus works fine. She needs to avoid the "bad boy" although she often wants to show off to other women that she can get the "cheater" to want her rather than them, but them he goes back to his bad ways and she gets jealous and wants to get even. (Demi Moore the Scorpio is dealing with this now with Ashton Kucher.)
    She can have a weight issue, but no one has more strength and determination than she has. She doesn't have to be fat unless she wants to be.
    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensiti e and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.

    The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
    You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
    In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
    You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
    At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
