I am married to my best friend (together since 1996) and have 4 totally rockin kids. I am disabled and a wheelchair user and my goal for being on this site is to lose weight and become as healthy as I can. I am going to try to keep my profile picture updated and as current as possible so everyone can see my progress as I go.

Member Since: 6/3/2011

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I am currently the heaviest I have ever been and am on a mission to lose weight and get as healthy as I can. I am currently 5 ft 2 in. 265.3 lbs and wear a size 4 XL. My long term goal is to get down to around 150 lbs and about size 12.

My Program:
I am just getting started so I am sure somethings will change. But right now I am trying to illiminate bad foods and bring in good foods. I am watching my sugar and carbs and portion sizes. I am also attempting to be more active and exploring my activity options. I recently started throwing baskets in basketball with my husband and kids at night. I didnt know I could still shoot hoops until last week. I cant throw far or make many baskets but its a start! Trying tennis this weekend! Im really excited about the new things I am trying!

Personal Information:
I am from Florida but currently live in Kansas.

Other Information:
Hmmmm....lets see...I like just about all types of music with my all time favorite being southern gospel. As far as movies go I like all kinds of movies with comedy taking the lead. The only movies I am not a big fan of are low budget films but I have seen a few that were okay.

    Hello,I have added you as friend and honored to be friends with you and thank you for adding me. You have found the best place ever to reach your goals and to accomplish the weight you desire.If you follow your personal Spark plan and do your fitness no matter what level you are and NEVER give up! Slow and Steady,never be overly critical of bad food times.Just own it and move on and try to fill your life with positive thoughts and allow yourself to be human,after all we are,lol!Look at this as a lifestyle change for life and Not a diet.Never have liked the word diet,it makes me feel like "I can't have and have to eat just a few choices".The good news here is that choices are many and can taste good and be healthy for us.What works for you may not work for me,we are all individual and part of this journey is learning about who we are and what works for us it will take time for this process,it took a long time to get where we started this journey. emoticon emoticon emoticon The support here at Spark People is endless and that's the emoticon part of being here besides being Free,lol! emoticon emoticon my new friend.My name is Diana and what do you wish to be called? Best wishes on your journey's and you are always welcome to visit my Spark Page anytime.

    Wow thank you so much! I have attempted t go play tennis a few times now but we are running into a problem with getting me into the fenced court area. I think we have it solved...might find out tomorrow! They have now opened a side door so I can hopefully get in if my chair isnt to wide. But if it is we might have to improvise to get in there. But I will get in and play tennis :0)
