Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei or IRISH. I live in Ohio!

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, 25 #'s, but then put it back on when I stopped going.
In September 2010 when I discovered Spark People and read the book, it really got me motivated to make a decision. I decided I wanted a healhier lifestyle and knew I needed to make a change. I needed to do this on my OWN.
Spark got me going and kicked in and I realized it was up to me to be STRONG and FOCUSED. Motivation is great on this site.

Last Summer - July 21, 2015 I began a New program on a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. I went to a dietician and wellness doctor. They encouraged me to eat whole grain and healthier meals.
That program was the best so far for me to lose weight. I lost 25# in 7 months with this program. It was very filling and satisfying.

May 16, 2016 - I decided to go back to WW. Have always had good luck when I was going to meeting and being weighed. The program works if you work it. After I had been sick for 5 weeks in Feb.and early March, I was having trouble getting back on track due to some prednisone I had to take for 15 days. So now, with WW's help, I am losing weight again and eating well and very determined to lose the weight I need to, to get to my goal.
I do have some health issues, so sometimes I cannot do some forms of exercise or housework, due to this, but do the best I can and try not to ask for help unless necessary. I am positive and
strong natured person and love life. I will challenge myself and I
will never quit.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my page. Spark friends are really great motivators. I know I can do this. I am stronger now making better choices and so glad I am aware of how important it is to be healthy. I want to be trim and fit and look really sexy in my bathing suit. LOL......I need to get rid of my tire, which I never had before. "The BEST is yet to come."

    Hi Dear friend,
    I have been having trouble with my computer but it seems to be getting better. I hope you got your TWC taken care of.

    Welcome to Summer. I hope you have a Great one with your precious grandchildren. I have only been to the lake a couple of times this year. Now the weather has gotten so HOT. The humidity is making my breathing more labored. Tomorrow's forecast is for 100 degrees with a heat index of 106 to 111. I think I will just stay in the Air Conditioning.

    I am still going to the Dr. every other week for treatments. ( more about that later ). I had my Dental check up last Thursday and I have to have another crown. My appt is Thursday this week.

    I am still on my diet and doing well. Down nine lbs to far.

    Do you have great plans for the summer. I hope your staying healthy and enjoying life.
    Congratulations on the Cav's. How exciting.

    Take care....Be Safe....Have fun this summer...
    Big Hugs to you.
