Hi everyone and welcome to my spark page. Let me tell you all a little bit about myself...First of all, I am a happily married mom of two, a 28 year old daughter, Alicia, and a 27 year old multi-disabled son, Daniel. Alicia has been married for almost 4 years, and Daniel is active in many activities for special needs' adults. I live in Middle Tennessee.

I have worked as an assistant for a special needs bus for the past 20 years, and I also work as a caregiver for a special needs' adult who went to school with my son. I currently volunteer with a non profit called The Joy Center. We are working to give special needs' adults who have aged out of school a safe, fun-filled place to go, socialize, enjoy games, music, crafts, and other activities. . I love working with special needs children, and in my spare time,I do volunteer work as a coach for Challenger League, which is a ball team for special children here in my area. I love having parties for these special guys and dolls, and my biggest one is an annual Christmas in July party where we spoil our clients at Joy Center with a day just for them. I am a Christian. I sing with my dad, who plays guitar and sings, at local churches....just old bluegrass gospel songs, mainly at small churches in the area.

I have always been self conscious of my weight, but unlike my younger days of simply wanting to be 'skinny,' I now want to be healthy and do it the right way with healthy eating and exercise. I have reached the age(48) where I have to work harder to keep off the extra weight I recently gained. I have been on Spark for about ten years, lost weight, then regained some, but trying to lose again. I recently restarted my program, changing my ticker and setting new goals. I realize I will need to make life changes to have permanent weight loss.

Feel free to stop by my page. I look forward to meeting new friends on Spark once again.



Member Since: 5/26/2006

Fitness Minutes: 1,885

My Goals:
I would like to feel healthy and energetic again. I have recently been feeling the effects of perimenopause and experienced about a ten pound weight gain. I would like to lose about 20 pounds with healthy eating and exercise to stay toned and lean.


My Program:
I love, love, love to walk...fast paced, sometimes with weights, other times without. I also love the Walk away the Pounds dvds. I am planning to work intervals of light jogging into my routine, although I am not interested in becoming a runner, at least at this point. I would like to incorporate kettle bells and pilates again into my workout as they have been beneficial before, and I like the 'athletic' feel and look of the results.



Personal Information:
I have been married since 1988 to a great guy. We have two children, now adults, one of who is multi disabled. I am a Christian, but I have so many faults and definitely try not to judge anyone.


Other Information:
i like yard sales, clearance sales, anything that saves me money. I also enjoy watching shows that make absolutely no sense like Gilligans Island, Threes Company, Seinfeld,etc. I do have a more serious side every now and then, but I feel that I work hard and deserve to enjoy life ever how I want whether it will be traveling (hopefully one day before i die) or just laying around watching TV and drinking coffee.

    I am wishing you a rocking successful challenge.
    And a means to gradually get to goal weight, like I am hoping it will for me too.

    This challenge has a lot of info and options, but the bare bones are enough to help with reaching goals.

    It starts Jan 17 and goes to March 7. There is a lot of rumbling, information, getting ready threads. But the actual challenge is Jan 17 - March 7
