UPDATE: May 2017

Wow. Long hiatus from SparkPeople. Since 2015 I've had some new health diagnoses that help explain why I'm not losing weight the way I ought to be after so much hard work. Please see my most recent blog for more information.

And, as always, your comments and encouragement are invaluable. I love reading them, so keep 'em coming!


Unfortunately in April 2014, I was diagnosed with "Stage 0" cervical cancer. I had to have surgery to have the cancerous cells removed around the end of May 2014, and I spent a long time recovering from that surgery. You don't realize, but healing takes a LOT out of you! For a month, just sweeping the kitchen floor was exhausting. I had to gradually work back up to the things I used to do every day, and THEN it took another great while to get back to working out.

Back when I joined SP, my goal was to prepare for pregnancy. Since then, my husband and I spent 3 years trying to conceive, with nothing but miscarriages, failed IUIs and some chemical pregnancies to show for it. We were just informed May 23rd that our best and last chance for successful conception is IVF. So now I'm focusing all of my energy into preparing for that, which is tentatively scheduled for August/September 2017.



I'm a 30-something woman who is married, self-employed, and living in Central California.

I have multiple physical limitations that make high impact (and sometimes even low impact) workouts difficult or impossible, and hormonal conditions which cause insulin resistance, weight and water retention, and infertility. I'm trying my hardest to help ease the strain these things have on my body by losing weight.

    emoticon Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL.

    The Sagittarius girl can have a weight problem because Jupiter loves to expand, but she also, can be a great athlete as she is a "Fire" sign with lots of energy and drive, so what she is depends on her choice. She loves being outdoors as she wanted to be like her Dad growing up. You could say she was more of a "tomboy" than the type who liked to be in the house, thus she doesn't make a good "stay-at-home-mom" type. She has a high IQ and makes a good teacher, or anyone who works with animals. She loves to spend money on others but then she is lucky and can make a lot of money. She has to watch her hip area as it can be her health issue. She is a person who loves to laugh, but know she tells things "straight from the horse's mouth" so she can be blunt and lack tack in her answers, but she is never vicious or revengeful. She will tell you straight out what is bothering her and get it over with. She gets along well with Libra, Aries, Aquarius, Leo and Gemini.
