How I got here:

I am a memeber of an online rebates site called MyPoints. You read advertising e-mails and make purchases through member merchants for points which you redeem for gift cards at hundreds of web and "real" merchants.

On August 19, 2008 I woke up thinking how bleak and limited my life had become because of my weight. There are so many things I love that I simply couldn't do anymore, and I had given up on a lot of my dreams.

Then I got out of bed and checked my e-mail. MyPoints had sent me something about SparkPeople. I checked it out, and signedup (for the extra 25 points) not expecting to ever get results.

Well, I'm getting better results than I had ever imagined, so I have decided to stick around and go public.

For the first time in years I am dreaming again.

Personal Information:


Other Information:
I am single, youngest of five, the only girl, and a former school teacher who left my job to move back home when my mom's health started declining. I am now living with my parents and doing the chores she can't handle (laundry, shopping, anything outside or up and down stairs). I also work part time at a customer service call center and hope to start substitute teaching soon.

    wow, how lovely are you?? thank you so much!
    i just decided that enough was enough, and it was time i completely sorted myself out and really made an active effort to be the healthiest i could be. some days i am really still rubbish with it, lol, but i am really proud of the fact that i am still going. i feel amazing, and that in itself is the motivator to keep going!
    you can do anything you set your mind to my love. really you can. and if you need a gentle nudge, or any help with anything,i am never far away!
    again, thank you for your comment, it really made me smile :)

    I just wanted to stop by to tell you that I thought your post about PETA's ice cream request was insightful, well-written, and right on the money. I only hope that more people will read and consider what you wrote.

    Stay Strong!
    Wendy

    BTW, I got to Spark through MyPoints, too!
