Good day! Welcome to my page, and thanks for visiting. Please feel free to support me, receive support from me,and keep positive self-talk and comments to others up as a lifelong process! I'm excited to embark on this new adventure of success, and I wish you well on yours. Enjoy the day... each one you have!

Wow, it's officially fall! My favorite season and the best season to get outside and walk, run, play, relax! Just wait until it gets all golden outside from the waning sun... bask in it! We love the cool in my home.

Supposed to snow the week of 10/8... I'm OK with it, but folks at work are already disappointe...


Member Since: 9/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
To go from 200 to 140 is my goal; to be in midrange of a healthy BMI for the best chance of erasing chances of preventable disease!!!
Also to keep a positive outlook on the outside and positive self-talk on the inside. I would like to spread bright hope to others!

I really want to be healthy before beginning nursing school, and before my hubby and I try to conceive here in the next couple of years.


My Program:
I am tracking food and exercise, staying motivated on Sparkpeople, and my husband is supporting me and may lose weight as well. He would like to go from 240 to 200. I am using the message boards, articles and other Sparkpeople resources for motivation, as well as Prevention Magazine and Cooking Light. I love to cook, so I''m looking forward to trying some of these Spark Recipes! The banana bread in particular, I''ve made and enjoyed.



Personal Information:
My name is Tina and I was married this June 24, 2006. We will be looking for a house next year, and live in an apartment right now, and we have two cats; I live in Minnesota. A very exciting time! When we get a house, we would also like to get a dog. I work for Wells Fargo here. A very lucky and happy life!
I also volunteer at a hospital and am looking into alternative careers in medicine, nursing and public health. Physician, heal thyself!


Other Information:
I love to read fiction, drink loose-leaf tea, take baths, take walks with my husband Josh, run and jog, watch Netflix movies, play World of Warcraft (surprising?) and drive to my beautiful hometown of Grand Marais, Minnesota to visit my family.
My favorite books to read besides fiction are books about women''s health, pregnancy, and children! I may become a labor and delivery nurse, nurse-midwife, or OB/GYN someday! It''s just too bad I don''t have the flexibility to become a doula.

    I love the quotes in your signature, especially the one from Oprah. Way to go with your positive, upbeat attitude.
