I've been away for quite a few years but I'm Back and once again I'm on a mission to change my lifestyle and become a healthier, happier me! I need all the support I can get and am willing to help others along the way.

On July 27th I witnessed my husband of 32 yrs have a severe heart attack in the ER lobby. It's a miracle that he is still with us. From that day forward we are together on a heart healthy diet and doing all we can to live healthier and longer.

If you need a weight-loss buddy to help motiviate and keep you going...add me to your friends. Maybe we can bring each other down--to our goal weight that is!! :-)

This was my old info (I'm keeping it for added motivation.)

Joined Spark People AGAIN-
August 23, 2017 Start Weight 229 (on July 28, 2017 I weighed 243, since starting heart healthy diet I'm down 14 lbs.)

There's always lots going on in my life and sometimes I may disappear for a little while but I'm more motivated than ever to losing weight to reach my goal. I'm doing this with and for my husband and family.

Member Since: 3/10/2009

Fitness Minutes: 827

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get down to 150 lbs. That means I need to lose 79 lbs. I know I can do it if I change my diet and get more exercise. But I know I have to look at it more in baby steps and it will take time.

My Program:
I have started taking medication for thyroid and cholesteral. I've been modifying my diet to help. Calories are set between 1390-1740 but it's difficult as I have Celiac Disease and cannot have Wheat, Barley, Rye, and derivatives of these. I also am allergic to melons of all kinds. So my diet is gluten free, fat-free, melon free, salt-free, and low carb.
I cut out most sodas a year ago and have been drinking skim milk for many years now...with all the stuff I've cut out it still hasn't helped a whole lot in losing the weight.
I take Synthroid, Lexapro, Diavan, Crestor, Allergra, & Singulair.

Personal Information:
I am originally from North Western PA. Married the love of my life and moved to CT while he was in the Navy. We now reside in northern VA. We have 4 children (ages 24, 29, 31, & 32) as well as a son-in-law and two grandchildren. Only the youngest daughter is still living with us.
On October 6, 2017 my wonderful husband and I celebrated our 33rd Anniversary!!

Other Information:
I'm not a very active person, I need someone to drag my butt out of the house. I love facebook and online games, chatting with my family and friends online and on the phone or in person when possible. I love to read. My favorite author right now is Jodi Picoult. I have all of her books and have read 10 of them so far.
I enjoy watching movies at home with my family. I love taking pictures and watching my hummingbirds. I have a small flower garden on my deck and a couple of feeders.

    Here is a little poem that I found in Womans World :)

    You're more than good enough! We all go through spells when we feel like we dont measure up. But you do! You are likable and lovable. You are capable and creative. You are strong and brave. For all those reasons and more,you're the kind of person who should feel great about herself,because there's simply no excuse not to!

    Always remember that you light up the word!

    Well my friend I have to ride emoticon my happy butt to my next friends page and tell them hello too. You have a super week...and if the emoticon come dont tell him that I took his fruit and veg you see that my next door neighbor. Peace and Love,Sonia

    You're not stuck.
    You're on the brink of success! Sometimes it may feel like your dreams are stalled. But that just means it's time to rev your engine! You're on the right path: Its been mapped by the best GPS system around---thats your (heart)!
    You have the best fuel there is hope! So don't give up now! Your life's not on hold. Its about to unfold! emoticon

    Hello Happy HUMP DAY!

    Here I found this in a magazine called Woman's World :) this made me think of all my friends and of me too.
    Plus if your like me, then its hard to give your self credit (when credit is due to your self from your self :)

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Give yourself some credit!
    For how much you do and how hard you work.
    For how deeply you care and how strong you can be.
    For how often you put someone else first,and for how little you expect in return.
    All good things you think about others people are true of you.
    So pay yourself a compliment,too.

    Happy memories are gifts that can be unwrapped again and again......Knowing what you want is a giant step towards getting it!

    Peace and Love,Sonia
