Feb 2017
My name is Monique & I've been on SPARK since 2008. Take in fewer calories than you expend & you have a winning calculation for weight loss. Unfortunately for most of us there's more to it than a math equation. Math was never my strong suit anyway.

I was able to lose 50 pounds last year. I started getting regular chiropractic care, I was eating better, I had a major stressor remove himself from my life, I was exercising harder & more frequently. And it worked. The planets aligned & the weight came off.

I need to re-align my planets again. I've gotten off kilter & lost my way. I'd really like to be a LOT closer to my "ultimate goal" by my 10 year SPARK anniversary. That would make me feel like a Success Story.

Other interesting tidbits:
* I'm the Mom of one spoiled dog & 3 mostly grown boys
* I'm a 7 year Survivor of Inflammatory Breast Cancer
* I'm a part time college student who will get her Associate's in May 2017.
* I help care for my 95 year old Grandmother with Alzheimer's
* My knees are bone on bone

    Hi Monique - Thanks for the goodie and well wishes. I am plodding along on the summer challenge; not making any big loses, but not gaining either so that is a good. This week is my best so far - just staying on track and feeling very motivated this week. Wishing you a fabulous week also.
    Hoping that for the next challenge you will be a Daisy again.

    Hey Monique! I am not on a successful path that past few week. Got a pile of reason but I will get back to my hard working ways. Just dealing with the bumps in the road right now. How are you doing? Thanks for checking on me.

    I tweak my oopsie bread recipe, adding Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings to my recipe and then bake it just like I would the oopsie bread.
    Once it's cooled, I add my sauce, toppings & cheese and throw it back in the oven until the cheese has melted.
