My name is Ute, I live in Upstate New York with my husband, my oodle and a cockatiel. Our twin girls were born in 1992. Sarah finished her Bachelor's in Graphic Design in 2017 and lives in the area. Julia finished her MPA Diploma in 2016 and moved to Germany where she met the love of her life, and decided to stay indefinitely. She is getting married in June 2019.
I have been a Spark Member since 2006 and always enjoy the support from my fellow Sparkers. My main focus is to use the tools here to help me lose the excess weight that might lead to health problems down the road, and take pressure off my knees.
