Hey there! I joined this site a long time ago but have not yet really used it. I am going to try and make a real effort to stick with my goals by using this site to change my life to one that includes happiness and well-being. I hope I will meet many of you and create lasting connections that will keep me on track, not only in my health goals, but in my life.

Member Since: 12/15/2008

Fitness Minutes: 229

My Goals:
My goals are to become healthy both physicaly and emotionaly. The past couple of years have been quite tough for me. I'm looking for support from my co-sparkers to help get me on the track to happiness, self-confidence and an over all feeling of well-being.

My Program:
I'm not entirely sure what my programs will be. I hope some of you spark-pro's will have some great ideas and/or advice to get me going. I've always had an issue with my weight. I was anorexic for several years during which I ate virtually nothing and exercised non-stop. Boy was I skinny...even though I thought I was a sow. Well, I am now at the complete opposite end of that spectrum. I don't exercise and I eat, and eat and eat. I am truly disgusted with myself. I have put on 30 lbs. in the last 2 years alone. I need motivation, help with my programs, and/or ANY ideas that will help me get my life back.

Personal Information:
I am from the Fox Valley, WI area. I am a single mother of a 13 year old son. I have a degree in Microbiology (one of my passions is science) and would like to continue my education. Unfortunately, I am unable to do that at this time due to financial stress. Hopefully the day will come when I can return to school and complete my dream of becoming a Level IV scientist at the CDC!

Other Information:
As you can see from my pictures, I am a huge animal lover. I have 4 cats (all orange; all boys), a rabbit, a rat, 2 mice and a large fish tank. I better watch out though. I've been told that I'm going to end up being the "Crazy old cat lady"! OMG I hope not!

    Hi, I’ve been wandering around checking out the spark pages and saw that you are new. Welcome to this incredible weight loss site. You’ll find lots of tools here to help you lose the weight you want to lose. I started in Jan. 07 and lost 60 lbs that year. I have managed to maintain except for 10lbs I gained while sick. You’ll find lots of motivation here by choosing your teams carefully. The team that helped me most is “The Alternate-Day-Diet, Friends of Dr Johnson” Drop by and check us out.

    For more about the science of the plan, check out this team.
    This plan will eliminate your allergies as many on this team can testify to.
    Since this site is so helpful but may be confusing, feel free to ask for answers on navigating around it.

    Welcome to SparkPeople!

    I started June 2007 and by using Spark and some self discovery in the process, I'm down 25 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for at least two months!
