Hello, my name is Mychel but you can call me Mikki. I had bariatric surgery back on July 12, 2011. I was 265lbs then and now weighing in at 210lbs. The surgery I had was the Gastric Vertical Sleeve. I was a size 22-24 but now depending on the clothes I can fit in from a size 10 to 16...I know, dumb right? That's what you get when all your clothes come from other countries...they don't know the true U.S. size female..LOL. Anyway, I am stuck at 210 and I am supposed to be at 160. So figured I would try SparksPeople again.
My main goals is to get down to my normal weight. Be done with all my other medical issues such as the veins in legs, the chronic back pain. I need to be ready for when Spring comes so I can get outside do fun activites, plant my garden of vegies and flowers without being in pain.
I am still struggling going over my totals allowed for the day. But I do have to say that when I first tried Sparks People I went really over and then just gave up. Now I notice I am not that much over so its a challenge for me to get in my ranges and soon will be a goal.
My real name is Mychel Wetter but I like being called Mikki. I am from Secaucus, NJ which I was born and raised. I am married to Eric for almost 15 years and I have a son who will soon be 14 and a daughter who is 10. I am a true-blue rocker 80's hairband metal head. I am thankful my kids like some of my bands unlike me who hated what my parents listened too...LOL. I am also Christian and attend Brookdale Christian Church in Bloomfield, NJ. I love God, but I am not a bible pushing maniac. I am not perfect or I would be able to walk on water. If you need a friend to vent to, or a stranger to vent to...you can say hello to me here or email me at email@example.com
As you can see by my pictures, I am a huge Stryper fan. I see them still every year when they come to BB Kings in NY. I almost have all 4 autographs. I am just missing the drummer Robert Sweet who is the blond pictured on the right. I love reading now. Currently I am reading Stephen Lawhead's Hood which is the King Raven Series. I just got done with the Dragon King series by him. Soon I will be starting the Lord of the Ring series and The Hobbit. Love my fairies, elves, kings, nights, wizards....so cool.

"I believe in waking up every day and taking a good step toward health, and honoring your body." -Troian Bellisario
“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
Just stopping by to encourage you to make the most of each day, my beautiful young Sparkfriend! Keep your goals in mind, and do something every day that will move you one step closer to attaining them. Don't ever forget that you are always worth your best effort!
Have a healthy week!

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."
"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."
Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it!

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are!
