I am starting a new chapter in my Spark journey. Thanks to Spark, I have more structure in my life. I have the tools to move forward with the consistency I will need to reach all of my goals.
Although the challenges I face are major, I have confidence that I can use my energy, intelligence and experience to achieve the great measures of simplicity, security, peace and love that I seek.




Member Since: 12/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 9,022

My Goals:
My goals are to be a healthier weight. This will not only reduce the stress on my joints but will increase my self-confidence to succeed in the personal and professional areas of my life.

As I move along I know that I have to maintain my sense of urgency and my vision of how I will look and feel when I have reached my goals.


My Program:
I am achieving a balance between structure with accountability and flexibility.

Building in rest, relaxation, and recreation are the oil that will lubricate the stress caused by my health/fitness and financial goals and my reinvention of my attitudes.



Personal Information:
I am a life-long resident of Brooklyn, NY. I started my own business, about four years ago and have the best job in existence--I am a Certified Image Consultant/ Fashion Stylist/Makeup Artist and have fulfilled one of my dreams--dressing models back stage in the tents in tents in Bryant Park.



I also teach kids at Wagner College on Staten Island--in one class I edit a magazine we call Fashion Trends. The kids write articles and are "models"--all heights, weights, fashion sensibilities. In another I teach etiquette. I am now going to do an adult class teaching women how to optimize the wardrobes in their own closets to enhance their life goals.

FUN!

I am also putting together a series of private seminars to teach techniques for being your most Sleek, Chic and Sophisticated Self.



Prior to this, I ran an out-patient mental health program for seniors for almost 20 years. I received my Masters in Social Work from NYU when I was abo


Other Information:
I have a 21-year-old son who is a senior in college. I am so proud of him!

    Merry! So glad you're still here :) I have been struggling for a while and finally realized the problem - I HAVEN'T BEEN USING SPARKPEOPLE! It was such a motivator before, so I'm trying it again.
