I am a Native woman living in South Dakota. I am a mother of seven children although only one lives me at this time (the rest are all grown living their own lives...LOL). I live in the middle of nowhere with my daughter and our dog, and three cats. I love life and more importantly love my traditional ways. I am looking to lose weight so that I can be healthier and do some of the things that are difficult for me.

Well, I have been on Spark before and know that it works. Life got away with me and I got off track but am back on board.

My Goals:
Well, I started a new job 2.5 years ago and it has been so chaotic and crazy. I was very isolated, and going through a divorce and the next thing I knew I was right back where I started. But I'm back, going to get with the system again and I believe I can get back on track again. I just need to get back to what works...

Ok, I was in Stage 4 2.5 years ago but I am backtracking and will go to Stage 2 I think. I feel like I created really attainable goals the last time so I ma going to keep them in play, feeling confident that it will happen.....

Weight Loss Goals:

250 - date -

240 - date -

230 - date - New temporary wardrobe

220 - date - full body massage

210 - date - Get Kayak/Canoe (weather permitting)

200 - date - New temporary wardrobe

180 - date - Spa Date w/daughter

160 - date -Weekend Getaway

140 - date - Goal Weight!!!!!!! New permanent wardrobe

My Program:
Well, I am starting from scratch but I do have a treadmill at my home and a one year old pup that needs walking... So my plan is to walk 2 miles five times a week and after a few weeks add strength training to the mix. I don't have a fitness club anywhere around so I definitely need to improvise.... I will drink 8-9 glasses of water a day and stay in my calorie range.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Ontario, CA but now live in McLaughlin, SD. I am a clinical child psychologist and work on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in McLaughlin, South Dakota

Other Information:
I am an advid reader, love detective novels that are character driven. Favs include Johnathan Kellerman, John Sanford & Patricia Cornwell.
