Well, here I go again. I'm one of those yo-yo dieters. Last time I lost 65 pounds and kept it off for almost 2 years.

I'm a teacher, a mom of 3 girls, and a gramma of 5;
three grandsons and two granddaughters currently.

I've been living in Las Vegas for ,WOW, 8 years now. Time sure does fly. The move has been very good for me except that I have neglected my food and fitness. Sadly, once again, I have gained back most of what I had lost before I got here.

Well, NOW is the time to start over. I need to get back on track, check in at SP every day, and get up off the couch. Right now I am tired and my body aches. I want to change that FAST! So, here I go again.

I KNOW that using this sight will help me focus on my weight loss and physical training goals. I used to be a competitive sport fencer at a national level and I want to do it again! My ultimate goal is to compete in a World Cup fencing tournament in PARIS!!

Member Since: 4/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,990

My Goals:
My most immediate goal is to get to 250 pounds. After that, I'll work for th magic number of 199. The ultimate goal is hitting between 150-160. Even though that is slightly more than my "ideal weight," It would be less than I weighed when I got married and started having kids.

My Program:
I am taking my time with this weight loss thing by changing one or two things at a time. First, I joined Sparks. Then, I started to follow the food plan provided. As the pounds have drop off I will add a little more exercise each week. I am also practicing my positive "self talk" so that my attitude reagarding myself is changing .

Personal Information:
Moved into Las Vegas on June 21, 2008. I hope to meet some of you R/T.

Other Information:
Favorite books of all time since the second grade: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Love the Disney version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Felt like Disney took too many liberties with Prince Caspian.
