Hello, My name is Von. Ive battled wieght my whole life, and it took me 40 years to realize, you dont "diet" to lose wieght, you have to eat healthy, and in moderation for a LIFETIME. Thank you to Sparkpeople, it keeps me on track! In October of 2004 i went into the hospital almost in a diabetic coma, and my cholesterol and tryglyserides were off the charts!.. i had to change my way of life imideantly!... i lost 50 pounds right away.. just by eating healthy... kept it off until 2006,..eventualy the scare went away,.. and i had started to gain it back.. but i realized i just wasnt going to live long if i kept doing this, and i wanted to get back to eating HEALTHY.... and then i found SPARK!! As long as i have my meals planned, and my calorie count for the day, i stay on track! I plan my meals 2 weeks in advance. I cook for my husband also, but he doesnt like the healthy healthy stuff... so, i make his spegetti sauce w/ ground beef, mine with ground chicken, regular pasta for him, and whole wheat for me. wul-ah!! i do many meals like this, and it works out great! im on my way... once agian!! *kisses*

My Goals:
I would just like to be healthy and comfortable. My goal is to get off all my medications!!! Another goal i have is to want to take a full body picture agian, and not of just my FACE! i can possition my face just right to make it look thinner, but i cant do that with my WHOLE body!! ha ha!

Personal Information:
Im origanally from Michigan, but ive lived in California now for aobut 20 years... so, i can say now, ive lived in Michigan 1/2 my life, and California 1/2 my life. Im currently 41 years old, about to turn 42 in November! SCORPIO

Other Information:
I love cats, i have two and they are my kids. I love camping, interior design, hanging out with my friends.

I love candles, and things that smell good. my favorite flower is the Lilac (although we dont have them here in California) *sad*.

I also believe very much in God and that having Faith and believeing is very important. I know with God I can do anything! Favorite verse James 1:4
