THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM

This is my third time with Spark. It works when I stay focused. I have been know originally as Sherrymer and then Mama Hawk.

My 3 sons (fathers of all my grandchildren) live in the Chicago area and my daughter and SIL live in the Dallas Area. I don't see eough of my children as I would like but do keep in close contact with them via e-mail and cell phone.

I don't see eough of my children as I would like but do keep in close contact with them via e-mail and cell phone.

I hav e had a weight problem all of my life. I can't blame it on having children as I had the problem going back to 5th grade. I have done the WW thing back in 1968 and lost over 200 pounds. I have been up and down my whole life. Now I need to lose at least 50 pounds to be able to have knee replacement surgery

With the help of all my Spark friends, I know that I will be able to do this

I am a retired Nurse Educator. I have had diabetes for almost 30 years and have kept it under control. I still take only oral medications.

My Goals:
my first goal is to lose the first 50 pounds so I can have new knees. Then I will be able to do my most favorite form of exercise and that is walk. I will track my food daily and check in with my Spark teams

My Program:
Due to health problems, I can only sit in a chair and exercise. I have many and do them throughout the day.

I plan on tracing my daily intack and water is no problem for me as I love water and it is my drink of choice.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in the Pittsburgh, PA back in 1938 and moved to the Chicago area in 1968 with my DH and 4 little ones. In 1999 my DH and I moved to Arizona. He passed away in 2002. I love to sew, quilt, scrapbook,craft and develop recipes. I have 4 cookbooks with my publisher that are waiting for this economic slowdown to be published.

Fire up your July! July is the perfect month to Ignite Your Spark! Your Motivator’s Firework Challenge Thought for Today is:
“One of the best ways to get through difficulties is to simply persevere day by day. Huge projects don't seem as daunting when we focus on one element ... completing that before we tackle the next phase. As Napoleon Hill said, "Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.” ~ Chelle Thompson
