I found SP while looking for a nutrition calculator. I'd lost 25 pounds without much of an idea about what I was doing. I was amazed and grateful to discover that Sparkpeople is so much more than a calorie tracker.

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be allowed to be more important than health. Not studying. Not chores. Not even family demands.

But I am learning that now.

Personal Information:
I'm from Seattle Washington and I LOVE to hike. Love, love, love to hike!


Other Information:
I have juvenile diabetes which puts an extra wrinkle into exercise, like checking blood sugar in the middle of a long run and carrying juice and a glucometer everywhere. Oh yes, and occasionally crashing.

I'm midway through nursing school where I am probably the oldest nursing student ever.

    . . . life is an inside-out game. Our relationship w/ourselves influences everything. How well we know, honor, nurture, forgive & love ourselves is reflected back to all of us in all our outer experiences/relationships. Valerie Sheppard

    The ability to make all things work in conjunction w/one another is the ultimate challenge and goal . . . but the best pay-off ever. June Archer
