I came to Sparkpeople to make a positive change in my life. I was unhappy with my weight and my outlook on life had become a bit grim.

I began menopause a few years ago and I battled depression along with it. The hot flashes, night sweats and depression were getting the best of me.

I was so blessed to have found a group of women that I have come to know as friends. We are not only on our Spark Journey together, we are taking our Menopausal journey one step at a time.

I am six pounds from my goal weight, I went back to school and I am becoming a professional photographer. I am mapping my goals and strategies for myself to help me accomplish all the good things I am looking forward to in life.

I have learned so many things while I have been here at Sparkpeople. I still fall off the wagon and I occasionally have my bad days, but they are few and far between.

I focus on being healthy and happy. I have left the negativity and depression behind. I thank Sparkpeople and all the wonderful people who are on my journey with me for that gift.

Member Since: 5/11/2006

Fitness Minutes: 1,921

My Goals:
I would like to complete a mini-triathlon and a marathon in the next year.

My Program:
I am watching my caloric and carbohydrate intake.

I also work out on my elliptical three to four days a week. I swim with my grandbeauties as much as possible. They tend to make swimming more of a strength training workout than cardio.
The ability to swim nearly year round is one of the best things about living in Florida.

Personal Information:
I have been married to a pretty wonderful man for twenty-nine years.

We have three grown daughters who are still the lights of our lives, an awesome son-in-law, and two grand daughters who are frustrating, beautiful, funny, mischevious and did I mention beautiful?

We are so lucky that we all live within ten miles of each other. I get to have my empty nest and see my kids all the time. What could be better?

Other Information:
I am an amatuer photographer who would like to become a professional. I am working towards that goal now.
