My name is Connie. I am 52 years old. I am married to a wonderful man and I have 4 kids and 6 grandkids. I enjoy reading, spending time with my grandkids, and learning new things.

Five years ago I lost 60 pounds but have managed to gain back all of it. This past year during the Holidays I was so uncomfortable in my clothes and my own skin that I vow to make the 200 Holidays much more comfortable and happy.

I am so disapointed and discouraged with myself. My biggest struggle is getting to the gym in the morning. I am currently taking college courses that keep me busy in the evening and so must do my workouts in the morning. I am NOT a morning person and really struggle with that. If anyone has any ideas, inspiration, or suggestions, I would be happy to hear them.

I am really glad that I have the Spark site to go to and my Spark buddies to chat with. We all know that we are struggling through the same issues and can be here to help each other through this.

I am always open to meeting new people and sharing trials and triumps with everyone and anyone interested.

This is the year!!! I am going to do this..just watch and see!

My Goals:
My goal right now is to take it slow and steady. I have a tendency to want things too fast and then end up disapointed and discouraged. I am giving myself all of 2011 to lose 60 pounds.I don't have any mini goals right now but, will probably set some shortly.

My Program:
My program is eating every 2-3 hours. I eat a healthy carb and a protein which keeps my metoblism running higher and keeps my blood sugar in check.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Utah. I haven't ventured out much past that. I did spend a year in Idaho but, that is it. I guess I have lived a rather sheltered life. My weight has always fluctuated. I struggled with weight when I was in school and again after having my kids. I lost all of it and maintained my weight for about 18 years. We had a tragedy in the family and that was my ticket to eat. I gained 70 pounds and have spent the past 4 years trying to get it off and keep it off.
