I am only 44 years young. My mind tells me that I am young and I can have fun and look good and be healthy but my body tells me that I am too old to do this or that. I am out of shape, I am too tired, I don't look good anymore and on and on and on. I do not what to feel like this anymore. I like that my mind is saying I still have time to be young and feel good and healthy and fit. I have weighed over 240 pounds for so long, that I do not know what it is like to feel light. I hate what I feel as you all do too. I am here to make a change. I have made a pact with me. I will do something to improve me and my house each day. This way, we both will get better :)) I hope this works.

Member Since: 4/12/2010

Fitness Minutes: 955

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 90-100 pounds and feel good again. I am too young to feel old. I have a lot of spunk left in me, my body just does not agree right now. My mind is pushing me to get better though. I can do it with the help of SparkPeople.

My Program:
Right now I am following what SparkPeople have set for me. I like it, its simple and I can make time to do it all.

Personal Information:
I currently reside in Wausau, WI. I live in a beautiful big old house built in 1901. I am trying to fix it up. I have been in it for 4 years now and have done some facelifting but it needs more surgery before it is ready to sell. LOL. I love it here though but too hard to keep up by myself.

Other Information:
When I was young (in my 20's) I had a passion for art, tattoo art, and I became a tattooist. I did this for 10 years and then I got the dreadful carpel tunnel. That ended my tattooing. Now I have all these tattoos on my body and I am in my 40's and I really do not like them anymore. That was a time in my life when I thought this is going to be my life. Now I want to settle down and enjoy my life and enjoy the scenery around me. Take time to smile and relax. The tattoos always cause me to have to explain myself to others what my true character is. Which is a really super nice, caring, empathetic person. :)

    Thank you for the nice comments on my photo! I have to give credit to my mom for my skin! I think she just passed along some great genes! I feel very lucky to have lost as much weight as I did and have my face not show it! I do have my "bad areas" but I am learning to live with them until I hit the lottery someday and can have my total body lift! Haha!!
    Best wishes on your journey to a healthy you! I've made some great friends on Sparkpeople!!
