Hello Everyone! Thanks for visiting my page!

So I didn't actually join Spark for weight loss to begin with. My company gives us a $150 Healthy Living bonus if we signed up and were active on the site for 90 days. Originally that was all I planned to do.

The summer of 2006, I moved with my BF Jake to Virginia from Vermont. With the move, I started to work out of my house, rather than a traditional office, because our closest location is 90 minutes away. Plus my whole team is in Burlington, VT and Raleigh, NC anyway, so going to an office in Richmond wasn't going to be very useful. In any case, it's amazing the exercise you take for granted going to the office everyday. Since working in my house, I gained about 10 lbs, despite working out more than I have most of my life (not counting my dancing years!). The worst part of the gain is it's all gone to my stomach, which used to be my favorite thing about me (thank you, to dance & pilates!). I was pretty depressed about it, but have decided to use Spark to help me watch my food intake and more actively try to be happy with me again!

Member Since: 1/4/2007

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I want to get back to 'pre-move' body confidence. I don't mind the number so much, but I want to be happy with my body!

My Program:
Just trying to eat healthy and keep active!

Personal Information:
I live in Portsmouth, VA. And no, I'm not military :-) (Sorry military is VERY big around here!!) Before I moved here, I lived in Burlington, Vermont but am originally from Michigan. I took my bachelor's degree at University of Michigan and am a HUGE wolverine fan!! Go Blue!!

Other Information:
I have 2 dogs, Zosia and Jimmy Ray. They are like kids, though I feel cheesy saying that!

I'm just now getting in touch with my 'crafty' side. Working out of the house & watching HGTV & TLC can do that to you!! We just bought our house in November, so there is lots to do and so much that I'm unwilling to pay for!!

    Hey Thank you!!!
    I LOVE hounds too. They just have that got to love me face. Our little Harley Mama is such a wonderful dog. She is a little nosy at times, but makes up for it when she gives you that little head tilt and face crinkle.
    Your fur-kid is adorable too!!!

    I loved looking at your knitted projects. I really like the cropped sweater. I want to get my weight down so I can make one for myself one day.

    Your Zosia looks alot like my son's dog Sadie. I have an Aussie named EmmaLou,she's 80 lbs of love!!!

    You have a great smile!

    What are some of your other projects?

    Hey, I have human kids and fur kids...nothing cheesy about that! I'm also originally from Michigan...Harsen's Island and I went to NMU. I've been in PA since graduating from college, but all my family is still in MI. I love your knitting! I do a lot of arts/crafts. Was a decorative artist for ten years...and am getting back into painting for relaxation...
    Make it a great day.
