Hi all! My name is Jackie. I first started using Spark People in February of 2007. I lost 16 lbs. and came within 2 lbs. of my goal weight. I was quite happy with this. But, I lived in Cairo, Egypt, and we are currently living in the States. I have gained most of the weight back. It is much harder to keep the weight off here. I guess because in Egypt, the food is more natural, it is hot most of the time, and we walk a lot more. I am officially starting over. I have met some wonderful people on SP, and I know with their loving motivation, example, and support, I will be able to do it once again.

I have 3 beautiful children and am married to a very supportive man. Our oldest, Kaily, is 25, our 2nd child, Dillon, is 20, and our youngest, Levi, is 20.

I do not feel like I am fat, nor am I terribly unhappy with myself, but I do need to live a more healthy lifestyle. I want to do this to feel better, be healthier, and be a good example to my family.

Member Since: 7/9/2006

Fitness Minutes: 2,083

My Goals:
I would like to lose at least 15 pounds. My starting weight is around 155 pounds and I would like to weigh 140. If and when I reach this, then I will see if I want to lose more.

My Program:
Right now I am just trying to eat healtheir and exercise at least 3 days a week. I will try to track my food every day, and drink at least 8 glasses of water.

Personal Information:
I am from Missouri in the States. I like to read, and I like cats. My main weaknesses for food is fast food, and I love Caffe Mochas. I am a born again Christian, which means I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior because I am a sinner, and He is the only way to be forgiven of my sins and live eternally in Heaven after I die. If you would like to know more about this, please feel free to message me.

    emoticon Jackie! I'll be looking for you on the "Top 25 Fitness minutes for June" list for the Team: Spark Springfield!!
    I recently changed my TICKER to read fitness minutes. It starts at zero on the first of the month and is a constant challenge (for all to see) about meeting the goal by the end of the month.
    emoticon I recommend this highly!
