Two years ago, I got married and moved across the country to California. It has been very easy for me to get caught up in everyday life and forget about being healthy and taking care of myself.
Between starting Nursing school again, working at a local zoo to make some extra cash, and balancing life at home I've fallen into the pattern of making a lot of unhealthy diet choices and getting next to no exercise. Not to mention, the never ending battle with my sweet tooth!
Starting June 21st of 2010, I am determined to lose weight, eat healthier, take better care of myself, and become a more organized & confident individual.
-Lose 76 lbs.
-Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet
-Become physically fit and toned
-Become more confident within my body
-Prevent future possible illness
Still ironing out those details!
My name is Maria. I am 23 years old living in Southern California with my husband, Devin. He is my bestest friend and my constant support!
I am also a Nursing student and I work part-time at a nearby zoo.
I love animals! I enjoy spending time with my pets (2 dogs and soon to be a Rainbow Lorikeet) as well as doing volunteer work at shelters.
I also love cooking, baking, traveling, photography, writing letters, fashion, make-up & beauty, playing video games, watching good movies, reading..

I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

Welcome the the Spread the Glee Team!
I love animals, too. Which zoo do you work at?
I used to live in Irvine, CA. We visited the San Diego zoo and Animal park all the time, and of course the LA zoo.
Now we live in a suburb of Philly, and love our zoo here.
