I'm a new yiayia (grandma) and it's time to get back in shape! Here's our beautiful Sophia.

I am so happy to have met all my friends here at Spark People. You are my motivation and my strength!

Member Since: 5/30/2008

Fitness Minutes: 4,806

My Goals:
My short term goal is to lose 10 pounds by July 31.

Then, I will lose 10 more by September 30, with 105 pounds by the end of October.

My Program:
I LOVE sparkpeople. I cannot believe I stumbled upon this site. It is so cool! I am really motivated to track my nutrition, fitness and goals. I'm wearing my pedometer and walking as much as possible. I even have a reminder on my outlook calendar to get up and walk the halls of my building at work every 30 minutes. I realized I sit all day long because I'm so busy. No more! I'm getting up no matter how busy I am. Unless I'm in a meeting. :)

Personal Information:
I'm a 43 year young Greek woman. I have 4 children and one brand new grand baby - Sophia. She's a doll. And, I have the best husband in the world. I'm from Wyoming but live in the arctic in Alaska. I have a wonderful life, but the extra weight I have really holds me back. I'm ready to do something about it!

Other Information:
I would love to meet other women who are motivated to lose weight and get fit! I'm also short (under 5 feet) - so I would love to meet anyone out there who feels being short is an extra challenge in losing weight.

My favorite author is Amy Tan. I love all her books.

My favorite quote is, "Why would you ask the advice of someone whom you would not wish to be like?" ~ St. John Chrysostom

    Hi there! I hope everything is going well for you and your family. Do you have any plans for this weekend? In my husband's culture it is a big holiday this weekend. Also, my son has a 4 day weekend from school so we were thinking of going to Montreal and celebrating this holiday weekend with friends. I hope you have great weekend. Take care.
