Welcome to my SparkPage!

I am a full time Paramedic studying for my M.A. in Professional Counseling. I joined SparkPeople in 2008, but life got in the way and I stopped coming to the site.

In 2012, I had gastric sleeve surgery. Since then I have lost 75 pounds (298 to 222). I need to lose 65-70 more pounds, but it is no longer easy.

I hope that once I finish my degree in August I will have more time to do all the things I love to do to stay fit. Right now, my time is filled with work and ...
I am a full time Paramedic studying for my M.A. in Professional Counseling. I joined SparkPeople in 2008, but life got in the way and I stopped coming to the site.

I hope that once I finish my degree in August I will have more time to do all the things I love to do to stay fit. Right now, my time is filled with work and internship. Not much time for anything else.

There IS a light at the end of this tunnel! I know I will be successful. I just have to have patience.

My Goals:
I want to lose 70 lbs. I have already lost 50, but have been stuck for a while. I've gotta get back on track!



My Program:
I am trying to eat healthly, but chocolate is my downfall.

I am training to walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this fall. It's the first time I've ever tried anything like this. I'm excited to see if I can really do it!

Hey Helen...Just stopped by to see how you were doing! I was away for a year and paid the price, gaining back about 30 of the 60 lbs I lost..but am back on track and feeling strong. From your pictures it looks like you have done a great job!!! Good for you on staying with it. Anyway, hope all is well!

I need to get busy and lose some of the weight I've gained back.
Looks like you're doing a great job--yaey!! I have trouble over the fall and winter holidays. The doctors scale put me way over what I started at--so its back to work I go. emoticon . Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. Thank you.
