Hi my name is Monica (Aka Mokey)...

I am a 44 year-old single mom of one 25 year-old boy. Currently I work in insurance but my real passion is working with the children and youth of my community, I am also back in college to finish my teaching degree. Ultimately I would love to teach about 5th grade. I am very active in my church as the director of children and youth ministries. I help lead youth groups, direct two church-supported children's musicals every year, lead vacation Bible school, summer camps and youth missions programs. I am also a member of the FCM (Fellowship of Christian Magicians) and specialize in close-up and parlor styles of magic and clowning enhanced by balloon animals and face painting. As you can guess I have a very active life and my weight has slowly been getting in the way of it. So that is why I am here to get my weight back under control so I can keep up with my life. In my free time (when I get some) I enjoy board/card games, puzzles, movies, music, spending time with friends and family, backyard BBQ's, camping, horseback riding, reading, swimming, biking, computer scrap-booking, photography, live theater, museums, art, dining out, fine wine and traveling.

Well that is me in a nutshell, a slightly cracked one but a nut shell none the less.

Fitness Minutes: 2,893

My Goals:
My main goal is to get down to about 175. So I am focusing on about 2lbs a week.

My Program:
Like most of us I know what I need to do the trouble is just doing it. So my biggest focus for now is controlling portion sizes and becoming more active.

Personal Information:
I was born in Rota, Spain (A Navy brat) and grew all over the world but for now I live in Southern Missouri, however, I do hope to be back living near the ocean again soon. I am divorced and looking for my Mr. Right. I have one son who has recently graduated with honors, with his 2 year transfer degree and got his acceptance into Drury University where he is starting this fall.

Other Information:
I am an upbeat, optimistic, and (dare I say it) a perky type of person. I can be very playful and fun loving most of the time but I also know when it is time to be serious. I have been told that I have the patience of a saint.
