Hi and welcome to my SparkPage.

It's about time that I update my page.
The pictures here are from the summer after I lost 46 pounds...give or take, for my daughter's wedding. The wedding was wonderful but now, 6 months later I have gained some of my weight back. I am hoping to get back into the swing of things and lose the 20 lbs I have gained back.

It isn't easy. There can be so many ups and downs, but I know to stick with it because in the end I won't be ...
Hi and welcome to my SparkPage.

It's about time that I update my page.
The pictures here are from the summer after I lost 46 pounds...give or take, for my daughter's wedding. The wedding was wonderful but now, 6 months later I have gained some of my weight back. I am hoping to get back into the swing of things and lose the 20 lbs I have gained back.

It isn't easy. There can be so many ups and downs, but I know to stick with it because in the end I won't be sorry!! It was wonderful the first time around....this time, I'm a little better off because I know I can do it.

My First Welcome Page....
In the last 5 years I have been going through menopause and then last Christmas I lost my mother.

I have been so down about myself. I hated the way I looked and tried to lose the weight. My intentions were good but my habits were horrible. Then, of course, with my mom's passing everything went out the window. In July my oldest daughter got engaged so that gave me a little more motivation but still the habits and the scale stayed the same. Then I saw a spokesperson for SparkPeople.com and it sounded interesting plus it was for free so there was nothing to lose but the weight! Once I checked out the site, it seemed to be a real boost to my attitude. I could do this!

So far I have lost 31 pounds. I can feel the difference in my clothing but also in my attitude and well being. Sooooooo, if you are over 50.... YOU CAN LOSE WEIGHT!!! It was really difficult for me in the beginning but little by little the pounds are coming off.

I am so glad that I have found SparkPeople! Thank you to everyone who have been so kind and have walked with me on this path to a healthy lifestyle.

My Goals:
I have reached my goal and it is amazing how much different I feel about everything! Now I have to keep the weight off.

My Program:
I have been exercising 6 times a week. Three days are spent on strength training and cardio. The other three are mainly cardio. I've been using the Leslie Sansone walking tapes and I walk 6 miles each day except Sunday. The only requirement I put on myself for Sundays is that I exercise for at least 30 minutes.

Personal Information:
I am the mother of three adult children. I am so proud of all three of them. My oldest (Nicole) is a school teacher, our middle child (Melissa) works at Cintas (the uniform and safety company) and my youngest (Joseph) works for a construction company.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading in the summer and putting puzzles together... seems there is more time to do that stuff in the summer for some reason. I also like to be outdoors if possible. I love the warmer weather. I am hoping to do some bike riding this summer. I never could handle it before so it will be interesting to see how it all works out.
