Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I've been at this about a year now and I'm about a third of the way there. Most of this has happened in the past couple of months due to the good advice and assistance of my doctor, tips and support from the SparkPeople page, and a whole lot of hours spent working with the Wii Fit.
Now that I'm down a few pounds and much more active, I plan to vary workout routines to include Pilates, Tae Bo and P90x.
Check out the difference 16 pounds makes by comparing my current pictures to the ones in my photo gallery. It's amazing. Seeing the difference between me then and me now is a really big motivator!
I want to get back to looking even better and being more fit than I did before I had my last two children.
I'm going to the gym as often as I can. While there, I do at least 20 minutes of cardio and then some strength training. My eating habits have been altered dramatically. I'm currently trying to hold to 1200 calories a day. Snacks between meals are limited to celery and bean sprouts.
I commute between Joshua Tree (where I live) and Los Angeles (where I work,) CA.
I'm married and have four sons.
I'm and actress and a writer.
I like to read, cook, bake, go camping and spend time with my family, friends and pets.
Wow. I don't really have anything else to say. I think I said pretty much everything important in the personal information section.

Thanks for dropping by my page. Spring has finally arrived in Mississippi - pollen and all! I've been crazy busy with the end of semester, exams, meetings, etc, etc. Glad to see you are hanging in there.

Ah, the changes I was referring to include a new job, the 50 lbs. (and counting) I have no dropped since the very beginning (yay), and just really wondering what else the world will throw next.The year, summer to summer, has been a transformation in every sense of the word. Very unsure and anxious of the next turn, but I can feel it coming...you know how that goes. LOL Hope you are doing well.

Just dropping by to say Hey....
It's still raining in Mississippi although I did see an little bit of sunshine about half an hour ago. I think I am coming down with SAD from all the rain clouds and it's not even winter yet. Made it through another week and wanted to check on you.

Well I didn't say I was stupid to contact you again. I said I don't know why I was. I'd already hurt/annoyed/ you enough and I sincerely didn't want to make it worse. I hold no animosity towards you at all. As for my niece, I introduced her to sparkpeople in an attempt to help her lose weight. I didn't direct her to your site or anything. I'm not sure how she found you since at that time you had no posts on my page. I appreciate her sentiment in coming to my defense although it was not how I personally would have handled it. I truly believe the saying "least said, easiest mended". It's a shame, because I bet you are a facinating person. I think you are very pretty. My niece is really very nice and funny too. I'm one of those optimistic, cheerful persons who love the world. For all of us it just doesn't seem right to be at odds. Please don't be hurt and angry. Not on my account. We all come to this site for a common purpose and that is to get healthy by shaping up our diets and physical activity. To that I encourage you. I love to read people's blogs because some many sincere peole like yourself pour out their heart and souls. I'm a little more private with intense emotions. That's just me. I'm afraid now to say much to anybody because I don't want to upset anyone. I'm not a wimp or coward, but like I said I just want to cruise along and keep the bumps in my road to myself except for a few trusted friends. I've had my share of trials you could say but they have nothing to do with my attempts to keep my weight off. Again, I'm sorry if I offended you in any way. I'm just not that kind of person. Anyhow, feel free to write anytime. I don't want to be called undeserved names and would erase them from my page, but otherwise say what you feel. Jcorycma
