Welcome 2016... Now starting my 9th year with SP and loving every minute of it.SP has seen me through a lot and I plan to stay Where else can you get just good healthy advice for free: Just put in the dedication and effort.

H there all: I am Lee from FL aka mom1014. I am very impressed with how motivational spark people can be. My plans are to use determination and slow and easy does the job to achieve my weight loss and fitness goals

I am a 79 year old widow, retired, with two grown sons and several stepsons. They are all the lights of my life. I have one granddaughter, who of course is spoiled rotten (by all of us). I have two lovely daughters in law.
Ah but that's not all: My wonderful Great Grandson Born on April 3, 2013. What joy I've been blessed with!!

Besides my 15 years plus of Hospice work as a Vigil Volunteer, I write. It is easier to write a book than to get it published but I enjoy it. I was a media buyer and copywriter for Mohawk Airlines (dating myself) in my other life. I also wrote commercials for radio and TV.

Although my progress was slow, I reached my first goal about 2010. Since then I reached my second goal, Sept 1 2013. Hope I never stop setting healthy goals. Now trying to stay below goal and continue healthy habits.

I must say that I have been thoroughly enjoying my time in SP, and am constantly learning. Good luck to my fellow travelers in this fitness and weight loss journey!

We all can do it if we focus and commit!
