I have not been so successful at losing weight all my life. I can barely remember being thin.

NOW though, I am slowly losing weight. I have 100 # to go. I was recently "fired" by my medically induced program for not being too successful and by not losing as rapidly as the DR wanted. I am able to succeed, just not by her standards. I have lost 32# to date. I will be continuing to lose on my own. Nov2008

Help me achieve both my goals: Losing weight and earn my Disney World 2010 trip: and place an online order.

My Goals:
My one goal and mission is to live healthy and achieve and maintain a healthy weight for years to come. I dont want my perfect babies to live as I have and to learn healthier eating habits to help them stay healthy long-term.

My other goal is to win the Disney World 2010 trip through online parties and cooking shows in my Pampered Chef Business. Please look at my web at if you would like to order.

My Program:
I started with a medically supervised program, but the doctor prefers only successful patients, that lose weight rapidly. Needless to say, that I'm not!

I'm glad that I found Spark People through! It is really great and a fantastic tool that I can share and use in my weightloss journey.

Personal Information:
I'm from Washington State, 98501.

I work fulltime with Pampered Chef, also with the State and also mom, maid, chef at home.

My husband recently lost his job and is seeking work. He is disabled and is working with the DVR program to achieve work.

    Welcome to the Lighter Side!
    I know about the weight loss Dr. who only wants successful people. I wasn't exactly "fired" but he made sure I quit. Funny how a free online program has helped me more than the expensive weekly shots-in-the-butt/ pills Dr.'s program.
    Good luck with your weight loss.
