Hi my nickname is Cricket and I am originally from San Diego. I moved to the state of MO in 2007 and have found that the past 2 winters have lead to weight gain.( Well, that was my excuse for the weight gain)
I joined SP as my first step towards NOT procrastinating. I have made the commitment to myself to walk every day. Please help keep me motivated!


Member Since: 11/18/2009

Fitness Minutes: 50

My Goals:
I will be 14 pounds lighter by Feb. 15th 2009

My Profile picture is of me and my granddaughter Kylee. She is 11 months old now and in the pic she is 3 months

My Program:
I will walk every day for 30 minutes

Personal Information:
I am a Mom of 6 and Grammie of 6 with another grandchild on the way in May of 2010.

My son who is almost 17 lives with me in my little house I bought here in MO in 2007.
My daughter and granddaughter just moved back in temporarily until her fiancee can find work. He just got out of the Army after serving 3 tour of duties in Iraq. (you'd think they would have better programs for VETS).

I am looking forward to getting some snow. Seeing that I am a native Southern California girl (San Diego, California) I love that white stuff!

I also love the FOUR DISTINCT SEASONS we have here in Missouri!

Other Information:
I am a liberal democrat and proud to be so.

I feel health care is a human right and we need to get single payer into our government system.

I think it should be criminal to profit off the health of humans like the FOR PROFIT insurance corporations do.

    Welcome to Sparkpeople and to the Jefferson City team. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of activity on the Jefferson City team right now, but I am hoping that will improve. There is alot of activity on other teams, however, and I hope you find some teams that you enjoy and that can be of help to you. The team I hang out with most is the Christians with Fibromyalgia team and I would love for you to join with us if you would like to. You can get to that team easily by going through my sparkpage. Go to my teams and click on that one if you'd like. Feel free to send me a private message or stop by my page and send me a message there.
