ALWAYS been the smallest kid in class and staying small most of my adult life was nice, but somehow, somewhere along the way, that all changed & I ballooned up to 207 lbs, which is what I weighed when I started this Spark program back on January 11, 2010. by the end of August, I was down 34lbs but have not been tracking or exercising since and have now found four of those lost pounds. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! The original plan Spark People set out for me was to weigh 157lbs by December 11th. I CAN DO IT. In my last profile blog, I said that, "I am now finally taking care of me and taking back my life!" Admittedly, I've slipped, but not any more.

I know I can NEVER look like I did back in the 1980's, (see my photo gallery) heck, that was 30 years ago, I was a baby at 33 yrs, BUT, I can still look and feel good again for my 63 years and THAT is my intention. Now onward & upward, look out world 'cause here I come!!!
