Spiralling in on SUCCESS!

One of my passions in life has been ice dancing; my Sparkname and page are a reminder of that! On ice, as you spin or curl into a centered point, the skate blade etches a spiralling edge; to me it is a great image of motion and intention... both qualities I bring to this new endeavor in my life.

My kids are active and interesting people - my greatest desire is to continue to be healthy and active enough to share their interests and have some incredible experiences together. I have a wonderful man in my life who has been down the weightloss road ahead of me; he is a great mentor!

I was aware of my weight as early as grade one. As a ballet dancer and then a figure skater, my body seemed to be my greatest enemy. It took me years to just accept that I didn't have the body type that is typical for either activity. Even as a teen I did TOPS, a variety of fad diets, then later in life I tried Herbal Magic, Weight Watchers and Dr B. I lost 42 lbs on the last one, and it was the wake-up call. When my blood sugar dropped so low that I collapsed in the office, I realized that I couldn't do it anymore. Of course, the weight did not stay off and I spent quite awhile reflecting and journalling on what I wanted to do. I am still in that process; letting go of the "quick-fix" mentality and moving to a "life-style" way of thinking is a big change for me!

I am a BC girl, relocated to AB!

I adore the mountains, I am a winter-lover and I definitely enjoy a good cup of coffee! I do not like chocolate - but will take cheese any day! :)

Other Information:
My Dad loves to use the line "Impossible just takes a little longer". That saying has lead me to some pretty OCD behaviour, but it has the kernel of motivation that I admire! I DO think out of the box and I love a challenge, so -- if there is a motto I live by, that would be one!
