Welcome! Thank you for stopping by my page.
I joined SparkPeople in June, 2006, but didn't become an active member until the beginning of 2010.

MY WEIGHT HISTORY:
I've been in the "obese" category since age 8. It was very, very difficult being in school and being "the fat kid".
I spent years "yo-yo dieting". I lost & gained several hundred pounds many times over. My clothing sizes varied from size 28 to a size 6.

MY WEIGHT HISTORY:
I've been in the "obese" category since age 8. It was very, very difficult being in school and being "the fat kid".
I spent years "yo-yo dieting". I lost & gained several hundred pounds many times over. My clothing sizes varied from size 28 to a size 6.

Sometime after my 39th birthday, weighing 290 +,
I started losing weight, without deprivation.
I am 50 years young now and happy to have kept that weight off! I weigh 194 pounds and am in a size 16. My "goal" would be to wear a size 8.

I was a very heavy smoker and am thrilled to say that I stopped smoking 7 & 1/2 years ago : ) !
I was vegetarian for most of my life and now I'm VERY happily vegan : )! That transition happened here with SP.

I look forward to continuing my journey here at Spark People : ) !

My Goals:
I will continue on my journey to become healthier, more energetic and FIT : )

I would love to get off some BP meds.

I love cycling - A LOT!

Years ago, ('04/'05, I was terrified of bike riding on the road -- I just rode around in parking lots.
I was heavier then, and I did not want to be seen riding in public.
I am so very, very grateful that I pushed through my fears and went out on the road -- there really is nothing like it!! : ) : ) !

I stopped smoking in April, 2004 and I am VERY, VERY GRATEFUL!
