Greetings! I'm a 40-something stay at home mom. I'm married to a wonderful man, and together we have a soon-to-be-married daughter and a teenage son (I still have all the baby weight from both of them...sigh).

I’ve done Weight Watchers (multiple times), Jenny Craig, LA Weight Loss, and joining the gym.

I've been through many reboots since I joined SparkPeople in November 2008. I love the program, which is why I keep coming back. As of 1/21/15 I realized that my goals of weight loss, health, appearance, etc have never motivated me. A goal of dancing at my daughter's wedding this year is from my heart.

My Program:
Following my SparkPeople program as if my life depended on it because, well, it does!

I will be more active, especially doing the classes at my gym. Climbing stairs, playing Kinect, using activity to beat depression, body aches, non-hunger food callings.

I will do my best to stay within my calorie goals every day while eating healthier yet not depriving myself if I really want something.

I will use the tools made available to me including SparkPoints, SparkTeams, and SparkFriends!

Personal Information:
My faith is important to me. I am a proud Pagan. I started exploring Paganism when, following a long talk about religion, a friend suggested I look into Wicca. I'm now an Eclectic Pagan with a strong affinity for all things dragon. In '04 I started a Pagan discussion group that has now evolved into a Non-Profit Organization.

My two favorite hobbies are camping and reading.

Other Information:
Random facts:

When I was a freshman in high school (1987) I wore a size 3.

When I got pregnant with my daughter (1994) I was a size 7 and weighed 137 lbs.

I got married in a cemetery.

I’m afraid of clowns & zombies…don’t even get me started on zombie clowns…lol.
