I am starting a new chapter in my Spark journey. Thanks to Spark, I have more structure in my life. I have the tools to move forward with the consistency I will need to reach all of my goals.
Although the challenges I face are major, I have confidence that I can use my energy, intelligence and experience to achieve the great measures of simplicity, security, peace and love that I seek.

Member Since: 12/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 9,022

My Goals:
My goals are to be a healthier weight. This will not only reduce the stress on my joints but will increase my self-confidence to succeed in the personal and professional areas of my life.

As I move along I know that I have to maintain my sense of urgency and my vision of how I will look and feel when I have reached my goals.

My Program:
I am achieving a balance between structure with accountability and flexibility.

Building in rest, relaxation, and recreation are the oil that will lubricate the stress caused by my health/fitness and financial goals and my reinvention of my attitudes.

Personal Information:
I am a life-long resident of Brooklyn, NY. I started my own business, about four years ago and have the best job in existence--I am a Certified Image Consultant/ Fashion Stylist/Makeup Artist and have fulfilled one of my dreams--dressing models back stage in the tents in tents in Bryant Park.

I also teach kids at Wagner College on Staten Island--in one class I edit a magazine we call Fashion Trends. The kids write articles and are "models"--all heights, weights, fashion sensibilities. In another I teach etiquette. I am now going to do an adult class teaching women how to optimize the wardrobes in their own closets to enhance their life goals.


I am also putting together a series of private seminars to teach techniques for being your most Sleek, Chic and Sophisticated Self.

Prior to this, I ran an out-patient mental health program for seniors for almost 20 years. I received my Masters in Social Work from NYU when I was abo

Other Information:
I have a 21-year-old son who is a senior in college. I am so proud of him!

    I think the BootCamp Team coach sent out a sparkmail message to everyone today... did you get yours? She gave all the details of how it would work.

    Hey, Merry! Yeah we should definitely buddy up... especially since we are both signed up for the boot camp. I have found that I do a lot better when I have a good support group. It is so much easier when you can talk to people that are struggling along with you! I noticed there has been some movement in your weight loss ticker... is that weight you have already lost since joining SP?

    Okay. I did it. I had been contemplating joining the Jan. bootcamp team. So, I'm in. It's a good thing, too because there's only 2 weeks left to the Biggest Loser contest in my hometown and I need some more motivation.

    Thanks for the blog comments! You know, at the beginning of the week, I dropped 1.5 lbs and over Christmas gained back 1 lb, leaving my total loss for the week .5 lbs. So, this week, all I could think was, "I gained a lb" and was kind of down for the entire week. Then, I realized that I did not gain a lb this week! I lost 1/2! I just wish I could have had that mindset all week, rather than beating myself up over the lb I had gained! emoticon

    Hi! Just read your reply on the "I worked out today blog"~thought it was a great response and also motivating. Sometimes people just say the right thing and it helps. Best of luck on your journey!
