Just looked over my page and realized it has been almost 7 years of maintaining my "happy" weight. I have started to believe in myself much more since taking the plunge to get to a healthy weight.

Looking back at pictures of myself at my heaviest I realized that while I may have plastered a smile on my face I never looked truly happy. Now that I have found a healthy weight again I am finding myself smiling more. I have also found the confidence to move on from a job that has had a strangle hold on my for the past few years and am looking forward to the change.

I have found such great support and friendship here at Spark and hope that I have returned those qualities to the community. If I can do this anyone can. Remember veggies are our friends ;)
My motto:

�I don�t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.�

Putting it here so I can look at it each day and remember it.

A quote to help me focus on things:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

My Goals:
I'm hoping to go from 147 pounds to about 130 in the next 6 months.

**March 24, 2010**
To maintain my weight in and around the 120 pound mark.

***Revised Goal- to get to 120 lbs. by December 15th, 2009.***

***Another revision on my goal. I want to reach 120 lbs. by my birthday in January (I think the 120 by Dec. 15th was a bit ambitious)***

Reached 127 lbs on Dec. 14, so original goal met!

Reached 120 lbs on March 8, 2010. Didn't reach before my deadline but I am HAPPY!!

My Program:
Right now I am using a combination of Wii Fit, My Fitness Coach (Wii), Golds Gym Cardio Workout (Wii) as well as various DVD workouts (eg. Walk Away the Pounds and Pilates). I also use a reel mower to cut my lawn each week (45 minutes of this and I am a sweaty mess).

Personal Information:
I am from British Columbia Canada, married with 2 girls and 2 cats. I have a love of all things Zelda and Guitar Hero/Rock Band related and of course my Wii gets me working out :) I also LOVE my XBOX Kinect!!

Other Information:
I love to knit, crochet, read and I also enjoy cross stitch and video games. My favorite author is Stephen King. My favorite games are for the Wii and the Nintendo DS. My favorite time of year is Hallowe'en and the heart of autumn in general (October is my favorite month).
