I am looking forward to continuing towards my goal of a lower weight and becoming more fit.

One of my passions is breast cancer awareness and raising funds for breast cancer prevention. My best friends 24 year old daughter, Ashley, has stage IV breast cancer and I hope eventually no one will have to go through what she has. I have had many other friends and patients with breast cancer also and one day we will end it!

My NOVA Sparkers team is AWESOME and I've enjoyed our monthly meet ups and our team doing races together. You guys are the best! You all helped me go from barely walking to being much more active and completing races!

The Ruby Teams are also awesome! The motivation and support with Rootin' for Ruby is unbelievable. I was lucky enough to meet a group of Ruby-Lites a few years ago and it's a day I will never forget!

I'm a 51 year old female, trying to lose weight and get healthier and more active. I lost 50 lbs in 2009, but I have about 30 pounds left to lose to reach my goal. Would love to find friends to share struggles and triumphs with.

I have really enjoyed being involved on Spark People and meeting so many wonderful people both online and in person!

I am a HUGE Washington Capitals fan and Washington Redskins fan. Unfortunately, neither team has done well as of late, but they are still my teams!
