My name is YVETTE (Rachelle), I'm 54 years old, married and mom to one 31 year old son, step mom to two, 23 year old daughter and 21 year old son. I am also a Grammy to my five year old Grandson! I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and I now live in Atlanta. I am so excited to be here with you guys as I travel down this exciting road to all of the goals I've set for myself in 2015-2016.

This is the start of the second phase of my life and I am taking full advantage of it! I have a few major goals that I am working to achieve, the first one is to get serious and be consistent regarding reaching my goal weight of 140-145 solid & TONED pounds! I also am going to get back to spending more time on Spark! Hanging out here keeps my journey on my mind and it helps to keep me focused! Oooh, how I love earning those award points!

I am going to continue do more of the things that I'm passionate about as I figure out what I really want to be when I grow up...lol! I once heard someone say that whatever it is you enjoy doing in your spare time for FREE is exactly what you should be doing for a living...why not, someone else is already doing it? For me that is the definition of doing your LIFE'S WORK! I believe that God blesses each of us with special gifts and I also believe that HE expects us to use those gifts to give back to help others.

Being overweight is like travelling thru life with a cement block strapped to your leg, its a heavy hindrance both mentally and physically...it stops you from being your best YOU!! I believe that when you look at yourself and like what you see inside and out, you feel good, when you feel good you're more confident and when you're more confident you're more comfortable going out into the world and taking charge of your life.

With all that said, 54 is almost here and I will continue to take charge of my life, look my goals right in the face and smack em down with CONFIDENCE!!!!!!

Peace and Blessings!!

    I actually now have about 350 Fitness DVD'S now, lol! I am a HUGE addict! Its hard to say who my fav instructor is because I have a few. I really like Jessica Smith (she has several Walk DVD's out) and also really like Chris Freytag, Leslie Sansone is cool as well because I tend to do her DVD'S when I don't want to work hard and don't want to do a lot of different steps! Her DVD'S are all basically the same four or five steps, no thinking required. I like Marie Forleo as well because she makes dance workouts fun. When it comes to working out I am VERY moody. I want to do what I feel like doing that day or that moment, that's why I have so many different DVD'S. I stand a better chance of doing something IF I have many choices...something on that shelf will fit my mood for that moment! Sometimes all I wanna do is grab my Ipod and headphones and head to our nearby Park to get totally engrossed in my music while I walk. I will walk at least an hour when listening to my fav playlists! I have a lot of 10-15 min DVD'S as well for those days when I don't want to do anything...we can do anything for 10 or 15 minutes right? emoticon
