Well, I'm back...again! It's time to get serious. I really don't want to spend the rest of my life in this condition and the longer I wait the harder the journey back will be. I've recently gotten to know a friend from church that is a fitness trainer, so Sandra is going to hold me accountable! If any of you are in the Phoenix area, check out her website at www.kptfitnessandkarate.com I can't say enough good about Sandra!
“I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:23-24

Carefully watching my diet and monitoring what I eat; calories are limited to between 1200-1400 daily with fats no more than 40. I've started a fitness program at KPT Fitness and Karate; my good friend Sandra is my trainer and have friends going through the program with me. Close friends holding each other accountable. I've made amazing strides in the last few months; have trimmed 30 pounds off, workouts are at least four times a week and frequent mountain hikes.
My name is Suzette and I live in sunny Arizona. I'm married to a wonderful man and have just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. Our "children" are two very spoiled cats; Mocha and Velcro.
I lift up my eyes to the hills -- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Hi Suzette. Thank you so much for my spark goodie. I need a little pampering after moving from one coast to the other.
Now living in sunny California. We have been here for about
3 weeks now. We ended up buying a brand new two-story house with a mountain view. Beautiful. Our house surrounds a courtyard which is kind of cool. We both fell in love with this house when we saw it. I have my own separate office which is detached from the house, also kinda cool.
Hopefully since we only live about 6 hours from each other now, we will be able to meet up once in awhile. Would love to get together.
My house is slowly coming together. Had to get some new furniture which will be delivered on Monday. Once I get the basics together, the rest will come easy.
How have you been? How are your kitties? I lost one of my Bengals, Kobe, who was 2-1/2 a couple of weeks before I moved here. I was devastated. He was my favorite. I took him for his rabies shot. We were sitting in the waiting room waiting to be called back and I was petting him. He let out a cry then a bit later let out another cry, stiffened out and that was it. They never could revive him. I was terrily upset. My husband was livng here in CA. I called him sobing my heart out. I miss him so much. He was such a good boy. I may end up getting rid of Ruhi, he had started spraying in our FL home and has done it once here. If he keeps it up, I will have no choice but to get rid of him. Really hate to do it, he is so lovable. Have never had a problem with cats doing that and have had cats all my life.
So,what is up with you? Put on 7 pounds over the move :( Started back with the diet and exercise today. You are so lucky you have people to hike with. I have made a few friends here already, but they are not into exercise. I definitely need to figure out where I can meet some friends at, hopefully ones that like to exercise. Where did you meet your fellow walkers at?
Hope you are doing well. Let me hear from you :)

we are planning our first Arizona Spark Rally (get together). We're in the early planning stages, looking for those who are interested so we can estimate the # of attendees. From that, we can size, find, and reserve the location.
If you want to find an exercise buddy or convince your best friend to join SparkPeople with you; if you want to laugh with your on-line friends and make new ones, this is your chance.
Date: Saturday, April 14th
Invited: Family friendly - bring the kids!
Venue: Central Phoenix valley area park where we can get to know each other, do a little walking/hiking and let the kids play
If you are interested, please respond via SparkMail or within one of the team threads below with a guesstimate of the # of people in your party (party! I like parties!). Follow the threads for regular updates; later, you'll get a SparkMail asking for a firm commitment .
Here is the thread for the SparkArizona team:

We're in it to win it!
I love running with the pack - ok, ok, so I'm walking - but I have the "pack" mentality!
