The world's best Mom!!!May 14, 1934-Nov 23, 2007 Strong though her body was weak
MOM, artist, teacher, runner, triathlete, volunteer, so many things to do; without my health I can't do any of them.
In 2006 if somebody would have told me I would weigh 123 pounds again in this lifetime I would have been mad at them for being cruel. I was probably over 165. I don't think I would get on the scale at that point. I don't count my pregnancy weight, because well that wasn't all me. I didn't join Spark People until I was already down to 151.
Why bother to bring this all up? So many of the people I meet these days only think of me as thin. People often assume I have always been thin. I want people to know I was FAT and STRUGGLE with the dark episodes of depression and bi-polar disorder. Check out the photos of the "fat" me in my gallery. I have some awesome people in my life who help me to keep working to focus on the positive. Being active is critical for me.
CHOOSE to succeed and you will. Ask for help if you need it. Help comes in a thousand different ways. But you CAN do this!
I wish I could say losing weight has made everything better but it doesn't. I strive everyday to be healthier physically, emotionally, and spiritually, but the work and journey are never over.
Be content with my life :)

I squeeze stuff in wherever I can. It is built into my daily routine walking or running places, I don't own a car. I lift and carry a lot of stuff as a habit. I just let my sons chase me around

I am a native SoCal girl. I love Disneyalnd, Knott's Berry Farm, the beach and lots of sunshine. I am miserable in the cold. There are so many places I'd love to see and explore. I just can't imagine calling anywhere else home.
Thank You SPARK People for reviving a dream! I received my personal trainer's certification. I want to help other people feel better and live better! Wherever you are you can always improve the quality of your life.
