About me... I've been an active SP member since July 31st, 2006. I have developed some great friendships and learned so much!

I turned 50 years YOUNG on September 3, 2016 and my mantra is Fit@50&Beyond!

My greatest barrier to reaching my health goals has been alcohol. I lead the group Cutting Down the Booze (Calories) here with SP and also lead a group on Facebook (Lose 'da Booze 100 Day Success Group). Since September 2016 - I have completed THREE 100 Day AF (alcohol free) challenges and they were the catalyst to so many positive benefits in my life - including weight loss and increased self-esteem and self-confidence.

For my 51st birthday I'm decided to do a FULL year experiment of consciously working to go longer than 100 days of Lose 'da Booze. I surpassed my 100 day streak and managed 174 AF days in a row and fell back to old patterns!

Now into my 52nd year of life I decided it was time to retire a 40 year relationship/habit with booze! Sober Date - August 12, 2018. Choosing to live in sobriety to make space for wonderful NEW things including becoming a Certified Wellness Coach! If you wish to follow my journey relative to this, visit

AFFIRMATION FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! (taken from my The Secret Dec 31, 2008 calendar page):
"In the new picture of coming years, I see my life growing and expanding in everything: in health, youth and unlimited energy at all times and in all circumstances. I see myself in complete freedom. I see unlimited growth in my personal capacity, mental power, and intellectual brilliancy. I see constant improvement in all elements of my personality and my body. I see daily growth in my wisdom, understanding, insight, and realization. I see myself in peace, harmony, love, and joy, and I see my characther expanding to be stronger and more beautiful. I see the never-ending betterment of friends, associations, and environments. I see myself in everlasting joy and infinite bliss."

Other Information:
My favourite thing is "Think Positive and ANYTHING is possible"! Believe in yourself!

I have ups and downs like everyone else - but the important thing is to keep moving forward and not look back. Sometimes things don't always go the way we planned but we get there... and that's what counts! I'm a believer - ANYTHING is possible once you put your mind to it!

Firm believer in continual personal development.

I believe that we must continually strive to live in the NOW, without fear or worry of what is to come. Each Day is a NEW Life!
