After years of yo-yo dieting ... I even lost over 100 pounds 8 years ago (and gained more than half of it back) I am excited to have finally found SparkPeople. I've always thought there should be some way to handle fitness on the computer, but until I found SparkPeople everything fell short. SparkPeople is my dream! I am so excited about it and have been telling everyone I know to check it out. I look forward to keeping track and keeping connected through this site. There is so much I have yet to discover, but most importantly, I am discovering much about myself as well.

My Goals:
Most of all I want to get healthy. Losing weight is important, but being nutritionally healthy and physically fit are more important. I want to be able to enjoy life to its fullest with my husband, with my children and grandchildren.


My Program:



Personal Information:
I live in Lino Lakes, Minnesota, a suburb of the Twin Cities. My husband and I have two grown and married children and two (soon to be three) granddaughters. Our son and his wife and daugher live nearby. They are expecting another baby in September. Our daughter and son-in-law and their soon-to-be two daughters live in Kauai, Hawaii.

We also have a beautiful yellow labrador retreiver named Palin. She is now our "baby" and we love taking long walks with her and playing with her in our yard.

I have worked in a church office for over 14 years and love my job.

I love to read, walk, cook, play games (board games, yard games, etc.), camp and spend time with friends. Currently I am redirecting my cooking passion towards cooking more healthy.
