Hi there...I'm Mary, and I'm a 42 year old stay at home homeschool Mom who is just beginning this journey with Spark People....I'm soooo excited!! I am at my highest weight I've ever been at in my life...sigh....and I'm ready to make some changes. I have two bio daughters ages 16 and 11, and last year my hubby and I adopted two children from Haiti..girl age 10 now and boy age 3. Life has been crazy, and I've been eating whatever I want, and my metabolism is all over the place!! My Dad just got diagnosed with adult onset diabetes, and I don't want that to happen to me!! I'm excited to have this wonderful service totally free with all the great support!! Thanks sooo much!!

My Goals:
Well..I have 100 lbs to lose. I have been reading over lots of the profiles and success stories, and I know that I can do it. I''ve set my goal for my birthday of next year which is 9/25/07. Which is now officially one year away!! Wow!!

My Program:
I''ve just started, so I''m going to have to keep you posted!! Today was my very first day!!

Well..I think all is going fairly well..I''ve lost 5 lbs, and I''m feeling great!!

Okay...I''ve been on SP for about three weeks now, going on 4 and have lost almost 8 pounds. It''s been going very well....the key has been....TRACKING EVERYTHING....that crosses my lips!!! That has been super eye opening, I didn''t realize how many calories I was taking in when all the while I thought I was doing really well!!

Personal Information:
I am a Bible believing happily married (18 years!!) homeschool Mom to a wonderful self employed carpenter!!

Other Information:
I love the Bible verse: Jeremiah 29:11-13. "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you, and not harm you, plans to bring you a hope and a future. Then shall you call upon me, and you shall go and pray unto me, and I will listen to you. You shall seek me, and find me when you shall search for me with all of your heart!! I love camping, and scrapbooking, and being with family!!

    I've only been in Salisbury a few years, so I don't know a whole lot of people...mostly the few I know from work.
    When we bought the house and moved there, the moving company tried to tell us there was no such place, lol. so I am surprised that you know where it is...even more surprised if you'd ever heard of my hometown...Warren.

    I hear you on the just getting up and getting it done...used to be one of my strengths, lol, but lately getting myself out of bed in the morning seems to use up a good chunk of my will power and energy.
    So I end up going home, forcing myself to do it at the end of my work day, while hubby's whining away about when we're going to eat, totally frustrated because the time I should be spending doing other things is the time I end up exercising. I say, that's it, starting tomorrow, Im just going to get up and get it done...only to do the same cycle all over again.
    I live in town west of Franklin, 2 towns north of Concord.

    Hi Mary, Sorry for this silence had some problems with the internet it was restored only now after six months! lot has happened meanwhile my husband got transfered to another state all of a sudden it took a lot of grace and faith to let him go...Our only trust is in Lord and His Promise that all things happens for good...(Romans 8-28).Meanwhile The Lord had helped me to loose around 8kg .please do keep our family in your daily prayers.I am planning to update my page with some latest snaps check them out! love to family and fellow believers .God Bless

    Hi, Mary! I know you're involved with missions, and i trust you're having some wonderful experiences. Hint - keep a journal, don't depend on your own memory ! Take lots of pictures, and then when you get a chance, post them in your Spark Gallery! Blessings - Shel
