I started SP in Sping of 2011 and lost 32lbs but then the biggest reason for my weight problem became known. I had endometriosis and fibromatosis. So I was dealing with CRAZY hormone levels, WACKY thyroid, and an painful enlarged uterus.

I am currently 7 weeks post op from a full hysterectomy and I am just feeling incredible! Its really night and day. I had no idea how uncomfortable I had been until it was removed. So with a new found self ownership and a doctor's okay, I am starting anew.

Today I joined a local gym, got a personal trainer who I meet tomorrow, and I have begun dancing again. I figure this is an excellent time to begin again with SparkPeople.

Besides all the medical drama, I am a mom of three and am living in Minnesota with my wonderful honny. I am obsessed with dance and bellydance owns my dancers heart. =) I teach dance professionally (*love*) and spend a lot of my free time dancing or with my family.

Member Since: 5/2/2011

Fitness Minutes: 8,950

My Goals:
Scale-less goal:
I want to get back into my closet. I have alot of clothes that I love to wear and cannot get my thigh into them. So my goal regardless of scale weight is getting back in them and look correct in them too. =)

Sacle Goal:
Would be awesome to lose around 88 pound. I went to this number because pre-illness this is the number I had maniatined most of my adult life. My goal is set for december 2012. So 5-7 lbs per mo would be incredible!

I know I will have good and bad months and I just need to keep doing.

My Program:
Yoga, Dance, Swim, Weight Trainning, and kick boxing!

Eat right.
Love my family
Laugh with my friends.
Be active daily!

Personal Information:
I used to...

- eat less and drink water more then I should. This is killing my digestive system.

-starve myself all day and then have one big meal at night.

-eat packaged food thinking the extra calories would balance out the lack of eating throughout my day.

-make jokes about my body, like I have a wine & cheese body... comments may be funny but the belly roll should be a dance move NOT a Hip belt issue!

    Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.

    So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!

    Oh gosh,Mace was fine. I have about a million neices and nephews who sometimes need reminders about pets too. Although,it would have been kind of funny if Boris would have had an issue with nervous pooping that day emoticon
