Hey, How are you? A little about me...ok, a lot about me, because once I get started, I could write a book! Let's see where to start, I moved to Pennsylvania from New Jersey 6 years ago, after my youngest son moved out on his own. I love being here, but I will always be a "Jersey Girl". I am married, I have 3 children, a son 31, a Daughter, 28 and a son, 24. (Yes, married with children for a very long time! lol) The house is really quiet now that the kids have all moved out, but...I have 3 cats, very spoiled cats and 2 turtles to keep me company. I love animals. I play the drums. I have played, I still continue to fool around with other instruments though the years, but, the drums are my passion! I love music, all music. I am not a big fan of sitting in front of the tv, but when I do... I love watching, "House", "CSI," "Law and Order," and "NCIS". I am easy going, I like the simple things in life. I enjoy the outdoors, taking long walks and watching the sunset. I find serenity in doing these things. My favorite place to be is by the ocean (not in it ) I do enjoy deep sea fishing. Blue fish are a lot of fun and a challenge to catch. I never say, "No", to a blue fish outting even through I usually come home bruised and exhausted from catching them. I have caught 30 blue's in a day, 18 pounds was about the average weight, for those of you who fish, you know thats a lot of work to get into the boat! Lots of fun too! I could stay out on the ocean in a boat forever. It is so calm and peaceful for me. I enjoy each day to the fullest and have a lot of fun doing it. I love bubbles, I can be found blowing bubbles in the mall, food stores, zoo's, wherever and whenever I get bored. I keep a bubble pen in my purse just for those times when it gets a little boring. I have all kinds of fun things to do in my car trunck too. Flying kites is another one of my favorite things to do. ; ) I love people, I enjoy spending time with and helping other people. I had a few neck surgeries and had to leave the work field, that was devastating, but, I am on the rebound. I joined Sparkpeople because I need real motivation! The kick my butt kind of motivation! all kidding a side, I was told everyone here on Sparkpeople have been wonderful and it has helped them reach the weight goal they desired. I have been trying to take off these extra pounds, it just keeps getting more and more difficult for me and the pounds seem to keep on coming. Since my surgeries and my thyroid decided to stop working (sigh) along with menopause (ugh) I have put on 20 plus pounds that I can't seem to lose. I weigh more now then I have ever weighed and it is difficult to lose it. I am on medications, my thyroid is under control for now with the medication, so I am ready to do the work to shed the pounds. I Just need motivation, lots of it! HELP ME PLEASE!!
