Failte! Welcome to my SparkPage!





This is me at my wedding -- think I can get that thin again?





Everyone should be blessed with a friend like Layah!

Hi, I'm a 44 year old mother of 6 teens/young adults. I work as a CNA and am in nursing school. I wasn't always overweight, but started gaining weight after being pregnant, suffering a back injury, and suffering from some bouts of depression. Now I can hardly recognize myself. I want to get myself back in shape and be energetic again!

My Goals:
1. To get my weight down to 155 lbs by graduation (May 2013).
2. Strengthen my core muscles.

4. Learn to jog.

My Program:
I will be walking, drinking more water, and eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

I eat smaller meals every 2-4 hours, with a total caloric intake of 1350-1750 calories per day. Saturday is my free day when I don't count calories. The other 6 days of the week, I keep a food journal of everything I eat. If it goes into my stomach, it goes into my journal!

Personal Information:
I'm a 44 year old mother of 6, a nursing student, and a proud Irish-American Jew.

Other Information:
I am interested in knitting, crocheting, tatting, embroidery, making stained glass, and ferrets. My favorite singer is Barry Manilow. I love old movies and music from the 20's, 30's & 40's. I love all kinds of music, especially big band, Celtic, Klezmer, country, rock & roll, pop...too many genres to list! But I have absolutely no musical talent of my own. I just listen and enjoy :-)

I barely know how to jog so I'm with you. :)

But that's wonderful that you're working on a 5K!

And an RN! How awesome are you? May I ask, where are you at school? I wish you all the good fortune in the world. Nurses are so valuable.

Thank you, Chana. My mom loved cats too - there was a cat at the nursing home where she ended up, and he'd sit on her lap for hours.

So I'm hoping my mom and Cleo found each other, and are hanging out.
