Here I go! No looking back, I have conquered things in this lifetime that would've killed many, so now its time to lose some weight!

My Goals:
By the time I'm 'done' this I want to be able to walk wherever I'd like to go ... and then be able to walk back!

My Program:
My start date says 5/10 but that was only the day I first looked at the site when it was mentioned to me. Now that I'm in a 'fairly normal' place in my world: today and everyday I will ride a minimum of 5 mins. on my elliptical trainer; stretch at least 5 mins. before leaving my bedroom in the a.m.; walk at least 100 steps ea. day; and cook at least 4 SP recipes for dinners during the week; and no longer rely on my power chair for all ambulation!

Personal Information:
I live in the 'top of' Maine where life outdoors is almost mandatory it's so beautiful! I have a supportive wonderful husband and four fabulous kids who have helped me through some very rough times and now we're on the upward swing with the grace of God and the love of family!

Other Information:
I love to read, craft, swim, fish and watch movies. I am a lower extremity amputee and appreciate any and all workout tips. I look forward to being an active member of my teams and am happy to cheer you on too!

Hi, I am the new leader on spark spokes. I see that you are still a member. Kayakfishing is unable to be the leader right now as noted in my letter to all members. I hop that we can look forward to your support. We all need each other, that is what spark is all about for us, each other. The team goals are quite simple and your tracking let's us know how we are doing as a team. Let's get fired up and support the team. If you would like to add to the goals let me know. Or take away, or whatever. Maybe you would like to suggest a challenge....Your part of the team so you are welcome to make suggestions. Thanks for continueing on your spark journey. You are an encouragement.

Thanks for stopping by and the encouraging words. It was good enough for me to go out and go for a walk anyway - another 45 minutes of exercise. Thanks for the help!
