Well, here I am again. I originally joined Spark People in 2008 when I moved to the Philadelphia area and had started to gain back some of the 47 pounds I had lost before I moved here. Since then I've been really struggling with my weight and as the scale goes up, my self-confidence drops. I've now regained EVERYTHING I had lost, and I'm feeling pretty down on myself. In addition, I've been smoking, and I would like to stop that as part of my healthy living resolution.

I got a Wii Fit for Christmas, and with that coupled with inspiration from my daughter, my sister, and my boyfriend, and getting back on Spark People, I hope to lose 58 lbs by the 4th of July.

Member Since: 4/20/2008

Fitness Minutes: 10,766

My Goals:
I am in love with an incredible man who loves me for who I am, but I want to be the best I can be for him and for my children and grandchildren. I feel like I've been given a second chance at life, and I want to be healthy enough to enjoy it!

My Program:
I am going to use SparkPeople differently this time around. I no longer have an excuse if I can't make it to the gym, because I can do the home exercises supplied on my fitness page, and I now have a Wii Fit to make working out fun! I love water, so drinking it isn't a problem, I just have to track it to make sure I'm drinking enough.

Personal Information:
I moved from Kalamazoo, MI to the Philly suburbs in June 2008. This is the first time I've ever lived anywhere but Michigan. I have two grown children. I have a wonderful, man in my life who loves me for who I am, but supports who I want to be.

I teach high school literature and writing at Collegium Charter School in Exton, PA.

Other Information:
I want to send a shout out to Diana for showing me this site and helping me get back on track when I was feeling very frustrated with my backsliding ways. Thanks Di!
