I am 46 years old. Mother of a gorgeous 16-year-old daughter. I Love Fall, Halloween, Winter, and Cats! :) Been married 24 years. In 2004 I lost 85 lbs. From a size 22 to 10! I kept it off all this time until recently. I had some anxiety issue and starting taking something for that... then had partial knee replacement... now have gained 36#'s back and it won't stop coming on.... I need focus and motivation....

GOAL!! I have finally got it off!! I lost 52 lbs. from June 1, 2015, till now! I started BodyPump at the YMCA January 2014 and lost inches.... frustrated after a year only inches gone I joined WW in combination of SparkPeople June 2015 and just dropped the 52 lbs. in 17 weeks. Thrilled. NOW I have to maintain the loss!!! I am again in size 10's and/or 11 juniors!! Feels Great!

My Goals:
Maintain my loss. Back into 10's and loving it!

I will continue to get 10,000 steps a day.

I will eat 5 fruits and veggies a day!

I will fit YOGA into my week at least once preferably twice a week!

My Program:
I started lifting weights via BodyPump at the YMCA and lost inches and no lbs. after a year. I then, in conjunction with SparkPeople, joined Weight Watchers and the weight just fell off!! Lost 52 lbs. in 17 weeks. Portion control. Add those fruits and veggies. Less stress!!

Personal Information:
Born and Raised Minnesotan! And proud of it! LOVE Winter (usually).

Other Information:
I am a mother of a teen girl! This job is the most challenging!
I am a HALLOWEEN Fanatic! Not sure how this came about but I LOVE Halloween and the Fall season! :)
I've been married 24 years! (this too is a job in itself! :) )
