My favorite picture of myself in the SCA-Society of Creative Anachronism. We recreate the Middle Ages and Renaissance the way we think it should have been.

The Time Is Now!

I have been overweight all my life. It is time to do something about it. This is my year. I plan to get it together and be the best me ever by my birthday in 2012. My birthday is August 30th. I will be 55, and I will be awesome!

I am the mother of a wonderful young man who is attending college and loving it. He has recently found the love of his life-so I have a wonderful daughter, too.

I am married to the love of my life; my wonderful, handsome husband Rob who has joined me on my journey with Sparkpeople.
We will celebrate our 22nd anniversary in May.
Life is good and getting better every single day! Spark On! We Got This!

My Goals:
I want to be strong, beautiful and healthy. I want to be able to dance all night long-without pain-if I want to. But most of all, I want to never have to give myself a shot of insulin again!

Goals to check off my list:
1. Weigh 275 or less
(last weighed that in 1993) 10/24/11 273.7
2. Weigh less than 266-what I weighed when I graduated from HS-1/15/12 264.9

3. Be able to walk to the lake in my neighborhood, around it and back home again.

4. To be able to run-to see if I like it.

Start Weight 301

10% 271 11/7/11 - 271.1

15% 253 (Less than I weighed when I graduated from H.S. and no longer morbidly obese) 7/30/12

Halfway to goal 234

25% 226 (about what I weighed when I married 20 years ago)

My Program:
I use my trackers-for my food and exercise. I plan my food-no more unconscious eating. I do 100+ minutes of Cardio 7 days a week and strength training three times a week. We have turned our livingroom from a lounging area to a home gym.

Personal Information:
I am a Lutheran, Wife,
Mother and High School Teacher who has been blessed by Sparkers and lived in Texas most of her life.

Other Information:
"Life is a sonnet; you must write your own poem."
Madeleine L'Engle

"My body is writing a new story in my life and I am coming a long for the ride. You can do anything you want at any size. Never think you can't! Don't allow yourself to sabotage all your hard work, will power, and self esteem. Keep moving, keep moving and for gosh sakes..keep moving. WE GOT THIS! "
WildfireKristin

"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't...you're right."

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude...and nothing can help the man with the wrong one."


"I've changed the norm. I don't have to worry about how to become a daily exerciser once I've hit my goal weight, and whether or not I'll accomplish this...because that has become my fitness norm already." TheTurtlebear

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens
