Hi! My name is Moni and welcome to my SparkPage!!! After my second son was born, my weight was out of control. One day reading an article in a Woman's magazine there was a write-up on SparkPeople. I logged on but did not really work the program. Well one day I was fed up with being fed-up and started working the program. My heaviest weight was well over 275 lbs. At first I would drink water. Then I worked on eating fruits and veggies. I would do 10 mins of exercise daily and now I am up to 60 mins. plus of activity. I also sign up for 5K races during the season!!! From a Couch Potato to Walk/Jogging 5Ks!!! I know I still have more work to do but I love the way I feel!! I love that I have energy and I love that I have a smile on my face from ear to ear. If I can do it - so can you. I am working on the new me one baby step at a time. So join me on this awesome journey. You won't regret it!! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Moni :-)

    Hey you! So tickled to see you back in the kennel for our final run out! After the initial shock of Boom It is Over,,there was that ahh nothing lasts forever!! I am not sure about the new Spark site..problem it does not allow our international me that is a big problem!
    I have been checking out several other sites, MFB seems to be the one I might stay with.
    At least we have time to try out other sites and see where they lead us.
    For now a focus on this final 8 and wrapping up our sites , kinda like packing to leave home!

    Oh the FOOLISH Commercial was so WRONG!! its NOT "MILK does a body good!" It's "HAVING MONI DOES THE BODY GOOD!"

    Hi's the hives doing? My neighbor started two hives but she is so busy I am not sure if she tends them or not. I have folks here highly allergic so not something I could pursue..but if you were closer I would be on your doorstep whimpering and begging for fresh honey!!
    Doing fair..medical changes and adjustments to life. Took a tumble that knocked me for a loop..knee still iffy! But pushing thru. Any races this year are you doing in general ..and OMG kiddo I do miss you !!
    Wanted to at least let you know I am thinking of you ..wishing you success in all you do..always there for ya!
