I'm 41yrs old, live in the Berkshires and enjoy life as much as God allows me each and every day. I do have Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, a Traumatic Brain Injury w/ physical disabilities(which have gotten easier) and am still determined and actively losing these unwanted pounds! I am a Team Co-Leader for the Can't Do This On My Own team, a member of other teams and active Sparker who you will see posting whenever the Spirit leads. Sometimes that may not be for days, other times you may see me daily!

Always looking to make your weight loss journey easier? Me, too! Let's master that by using Spark People to guide our path the right way, together! Always looking to lend and share support and friendship!!

My Goals:
After giving my child for adoption 20yrs ago I want to be healthy and fit the day I get to meet him. This may never actually happen, but Ben, I'm trying....He lost 40lbs to qualify for and be sworn into the U.S Marine Corps-if he can do it: you'd bet I can!!

I will lose and become more confident! I am going to be able to trust that I can make a walk to the grocery store without fearing that dreaded failure! For me, that is huge! (updated 10/12/16 walking briskly and distances far beyond my wildest dreams!)

My Program:
At this point (09/25/15) I am doing 2 fruits, 3 veg and protein 5 times a day! I find if I eat 5 small meals my body works best! Metabolism kicks into gear and the losses happen!
(on 10/12/16 my eating is this no longer and losses are much different! Needing to get back to this style me thinks!)

Personal Information:
Living in N.Adams ,Ma. and loving it! Have been here for 6 yrs after growing up in Wilmington, Ma where I lived for 30+ yrs, off and on. Have lived in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey- England, and Atlanta, Ga. U.S.A as well...

I have been a musician since the 3rd grade and a mezzo soprano by rite, giving my voice recital on Oct. 1, 2016 quite successfully after suffering a vocal paresis for 20 years. Once again, my God and Healing Father brought my gift back and I am using this gift to serve Him.

Other Information:
I am a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) survivor and have just celebrated 23yrs of still being alive. I learned to walk, talk, eat and be potty trained again at age 21....not easy, but I did them all! Time to learn how to eat again...the best way for my body!
