Let's say it together: Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels...Repeat... Hello, I love to cook & eat! I love learning CrossFit and am learning to run, but am very weak to snacks (even healthy ones) and I just love good food way too much!! I am a former vegan and when I added dairy & white flour back into my diet a few years ago, I gained about 25 pounds! Ugh! After working in a pharmacy for 20 years, I have a passion for nutrition and disease prevention. I have been a vegetarian and excitotoxin free for nearly 10 years. My weight is not why I became a veg. I had fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. I now have neither. Seven years ago I moved to southern Oregon from southern California to be closer to family and have a whole new life and have a better attitude. I have two little boys now, too! Having a baby at 44 hasn't done much for my figure either! I have learned that the key to good nutrition and disease prevention is: Eating Right! Including, eating as many fruits and vegetables as possible! Juice Plus keeps me healthy and bridges the gap between what I eat and what I should eat! (I love, love, love it!) It is not a vitamin supplement, it is whole fruits and vegetables that are juiced and dried and put into capsules. See how it is made at By putting my goals here, I stay motivated to DO them. I feel an obligation to succeed and show other hopeful members that they can too! My Goals: Be true to my workout and make it part of my life! Become a Certified Personal Trainer. Do the "Tough Mudder". Don't give in to temptation of food and smoking! Help others along the way! I welcome any suggestions or questions. I love SparkPeople and the support I have found here! Thank you for visiting my page.

My Goals:
I want to get fit! I know I can do it, because I have before. I am disappointed in myself for letting my shape get out of control again.

My Program:
I eat healthy, but I need to watch my portion sizes and amounts of protein, fats & carbs I'm eating. I need to exercise daily!! Exercise is what makes the weight come off for me! It's tough in the winter because I just want to stay inside, but once I get to the gym, I feel better.

Personal Information:
I teach people how to slump bottles as "The Bottle Slumper". You can see what my Mom & I do together at my website:

In my quest to get fit and healthy, I have found Juice Plus and I like to share it with other like minded people. To learn about how it can change your life too, go to:

Other Information:
I love to read cookbooks and cook. I like to challenge myself and alter standard recipes to make them vegan. Another frequent challenge is to see if my husband will eat it and like it.
