With the ups and downs of life, comes the ups and downs of weight loss. The important thing is to stay positive and never give up.

My goal this year is to use Pilates to strengthen my core and correct some imbalances that contribute to pain. In addition my cardio will be Zumba fitness, it's always fun! Plus some weight training to keep those calories burning.

For meals I am going to focus on more healthy clean-eating meals and more meatless meals. When incorporating clean eating I was never feeling hungry or craved sugar. But will enjoy treats in moderation. Most importantly, I would like to see my cholesterol levels go down by using food as a tool more than I did last year.

I am excited to be here with my friend MaryJo and newest member Maria. I look forward to cheering each other on to reach our goals to be healthy, fit, women.


In 2004 I made it a committment to myself to exercise one hour a day and work on my eating habits. I was ready to improve my health and wanted to be a role model for my family and friends. With consistency and persistance, I lost 40 pounds. In 2005 my story was chosen for a magazine and they featured me on the cover.

I then set my goals even higher and participated in 5 fitness shows. After the last show, my Mom was diagnosed with cancer, 4 weeks later she was gone. It was a difficult year, and during that time, some of the weight slowly returned.

This year I am ready to focus on some more fitness goals. My long-term is to stay healthy with nutrition and exercise. My short-term goals is to run a 5k in March. My small goals will be drinking more water, tracking my food, and being cosistent with my exercise.

I have learned to stop focusing on the scale. Instead to set big and small goals, surround myself with others who have similar goals, and take it one day at a time. Spark has it all right here, articles, support, motivation, nutrition, meal idea, strength workouts etc. Best of all, I will be continuing my journey with my best friend, who lives in another state, by communicating through our spark page.

Turned 50 this year. New goal to be healthy and fit and see my son graduate.

    I would love to do the Mayor's Challenge with you. It sounds like so much fun. I know you will get a lot out of it, meet new people and have a lot of fun. Someday we will do a challenge together.

    I went to Gold's with Jolene. There is a cinima room with rows of cardio equipment and a big movie screen. It is dark and has surround sound. We walked in just when the movie was starting. It was awesome. Time went by so fast. I don't know the name of the movie (didn't have my glasses to read the list on the door), but it was good.

    You are more than half way to goal. It's great watching that tiger move. Keep it up and you'll be there before you know it.
