Contrary to popular belief, tomatoes do just fine in containers. (Unless the squirrels get them.)

I've been married to my husband Charlie for 17 years. We have two children, Nick who is 14 (going on 30) and Samantha who is 12. We have a load of animals and such... 2 dogs (Heidi is a keeshound & Chloe ~ a Mini American Eskimo), 2 cats (Ebony & Cooper) and last but not least, Hermi, our hermit crab who has been a part of the family for over 8 years now! During the school year, I am a TA for 4th & 5th Grade Special Ed. I only work part-time while out for summer vacation. Thanks to the kindness of SparkPeople members, one of my pictures is on - more to follow!

My Goals:
I want to be able to go out and not be self-conscious of the way I look. I also hope to motivate myself to become more active as I have a tendency to put exercise on the "back burner." I would love to actually achieve my weight loss goals.

My Program:
I have been doing "flex-points" with WW since the first week of February '08. I started SP in April. It has been a real backup to my goals. It's 'realtime' support through the cravings and mistakes that we are all faced with.

Personal Information:
I've finally lost 25 pounds! This time I'm going to continue to do what must be done! During the summer when I am not working, I stay up too late and "play" on the computer.

Other Information:
I have a great garden during the summer. There is nothing like a tomato grown in Jersey. I drive to North Jersey every May to purchase heirloom tomato plants from Catalpa Ridge Farms. (www.jerseygrown) I get them and my husband and kids get to plant them! My green tomatoes are starting to ripen. Today (8/5) my daughter brought in an "orange strawberry" tomato...It's heart shaped with gathered shoulders like a strawberry (but it's a deep orange color. What a taste!! :-) 0 points
