My Goals:
I'm establishing a contract with myself. My SMART goal is that I will lose 25 pounds by January 1, 2013. I believe that this is attainable. So as to not allow for the possibility for failing, I have a "clause" with an option to extend the contract on a month by month basis.

My Program:
I have done the full gamut of weight loss programs and have learned much. I will be blending the best of them, along with using the great motivational resources on Spark people.

Personal Information:
Name: Patty from MN

Important stuff about me: Married 27 years to my soul mate, Jim. No children. I'm a nurse working full-time. I'm in graduate school and I'm a caregiver to my husband. Plus, I try to have fun!


Other Information:
I love quotes and one that has become my signature is: I cannot control the waves, but I can learn to surf!
