My name is Yvonne and I joined sparkpeople a few days ago...I was looking to jump start my weight loss and a new healthy eating life style. I was so amazed with all the support and information that this web site embodied. I am glad I stumbbled upon it. I am not much of a writer, but I will do my best to state who I am, and what my goals are, bear with me.
I am a mother of five and a grandma to one. I am a snow bird from the north who planted myself here in Central FL and just never left.
I have been on the weight loss yoyo for years now. I gain a lot of weight when I had my last which were a set of twin girls. I used to call it baby fat when I was unable to lose the weight due to the twins. Well my twins are graduating HS in 2015 and this baby fat is no longer a joke. Unfortunatly due to this weight gain and unheathy eating life style, I have developed all sorts of illnessess.
Hopefully with all the wealth of information and support from sparkpeople, I can get fit and change my eating habits, which by the way I have done so since signing up, and using the food tracker and commiiting to the membership card pledge.
Slimming down to my disired weight can hopefully aid in counteracting some of the health issues I face, which I am so looking foward to. Heather is Heavenly, and Less Fat is Flattering and thast what I am aiming for.
Thank you Sparkpeople, I am staying strong and staying the course and utilizing the tools put forth on your website, to aid me in my weight loss journey.:)
