I am married to a wonderful youth minister and have an amazing autistic son!

I began my SP journey in 2010 at 180 pounds.

When I got married I was young, 19, and weightless, 125 pounds. The year before getting pregnant I was 160, got into the gym and was 135 when I got pregnant. 200 pounds the day my son was born!

In 2010 I was miserable and had to do something.

Ups and down, mentally and physically. This last 5 years, we have been living our own life to living our life to serve God.

We moved from Montana to Arizona April 2015, son began public school in 7th grade, new services for his autism, and some free time for myself!! It's time for me to get back to who I was built to be!

God didn't make me fat, I chose to eat that!

Today is almost 3 months from my re-joining SP! I have met my first goal!
Goal #1: weight 160. Met: 2/12/12! I lost that in 8 weeks!
Goal #2: wight 140. Currently working towards that!

Two years after the last update and I'm 180. Here I go again. 2014

It's now September 2015 and I am beginning again. 180 in July.
9/8/2015 170 pounds. Tracking food, tracking fitness, doing 10 every day.

Member Since: 5/10/2010

Fitness Minutes: 10,933

My Goals:
I'm 40 something and need to be in better condition and lower triglycerides.

Long term:
Get to 140 pounds by my birthday 2016.

Short term:
Eat healthier and track intake.
Spend more time being active a day, at least 10, and track it.

End all be all:
Feel and look healthier.
Lower cholesterol
Set a good example to my family.

My Program:
SparkPeople calorie intake guidelines.
Walk 5 miles or more a week.
Get out into the Red Rock/Sedona area of my neighborhood.
Be active, 10 minutes a day, doing whatever makes me happy.

Personal Information:
I live in Arizona now. Have been married since 1991 and have a son with autism.
I was homeschooling him and he's now in public school. That is an answer to my prayers and better for my health. He did not like going outside, and I LOVE going outside!
I work for God in everything I do and my health should not be left out!

Other Information:
Whew! My days are busy!

I read my Bible and find strength and encouragement in it. I have a bestie friend who has a heart condition and understands.

God bless you all! You CAN do this!

    Hey Nicci! Here is wishing you a wonderful weekend. Ours is super busy (which is kind of scary for my food plan) Tonight our Alpha and Omega youth group is putting on "Night at the Ponderosa" dinner and dancing. Should be a blast, but like I said the food choices are not good for my plan. And tomorrow is wrestling tournament ALL day in CFalls! Whoo hoo! Anyway have a fantastic weekend and congratulations on the 30lb loss!

    Thanks for the encouragement on my blog! My little aspie (we think) is not able to tell me specifically what is bothering him. The older, teenage aspie will probably have a hard time if we look for another church. So, hello rock...hello hard place! lol We are definitely praying, and appreciate if you'd pray for us too! Thanks!

    Anyway, thank you again for your advice- we are trying what the school has been putting in place- and we tried headphones, but maybe earplugs would be better- if he'll tolerate them! =) I am thankful that the school has really worked hard and helped....amazing what a few years of improvements will do. (It wasn't as easy to get help for my older one.)

    Have a great day!

    I am so glad to meet you as well, it is a really small world isn't it?? Thank you for the encouragement and the fellowship. I will keep you in my prayers and I look forward to meeting you in person.
