Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my Spark page.

I've just passed my two year Sparkaversary here and Spark People has really changed my life. When I started, I was 230 pounds down from my all time high of 236. I lost 6 pounds on my own before joining SP on 1/3/11. I lost 50 pounds by August 2011, just in time for my sister's wedding. My all time low was 180.4 in March 2012.

I was about 185 for a year and just could not lose. I have to admit that even though I was exercising a lot, I wasn't eating as well as I could. I still watched my calories and ate tons of veggies but it just was not enough. And then over the Christmas holidays 2012, I gained 10 pounds due to zero exercise and pigging out for a month. Then in March 2013, I was suddenly laid off from my job and that meant all my routines were thrown off. I gained even more and now am back where I started. :-(

My Program:
I've always been a big water drinker, so I'm easily drinking 8-12 glasses of water a day.

I joined a gym where I can do the elliptical and use their weight machines. When at home, I walk with Leslie Sansone videos.

I'm also tracking what I eat and severely limiting my alcohol. I'm trying to eat plenty of protein and limit carbs (but not doing low carb or anything) but it's hard!

Personal Information:
I live in Milpitas, CA which is a suburb of San Jose (Silicon Valley, Northern California).

I have a husband, Bill, and 2 kids (Jeremy is 15 and Jenny is 13).
