HEY YALL!!!


I've been away from Spark for a while. I have actually been a member for about 10 years now,just under different user names:
Barbiemom2
SaladAddict
Size0-4ever
Teeny2Bee

And now..INEEDMYPHONE...because...I really do need my phone!!

My initial visit to Spark in 2007 helped my lose 30 (from 135 to 105) lbs and gave me courage to do things I had never imagined doing,like running a 5K. I had planned to go back to school until a forced move set us back. 10 years late I am back to find my courage....

-Courage to complete my goals no matter how big or small
-Courage to set a good example for my kids
-Courage to save my health
-Courage to dust myself off and continue after failure
-Courage to NEVER GIVE UP

I am back now after some major adjustments in my life. After 17 years at one job I have a new one. I will tell you...its more than a job. It provides me with freedom. Freedom to move about,freedom from isolation,freedom to be myself.

I am now mother to 2 teenagers and a Jackweenie. Wife of 18 years.

Before I left Spark in 2015 I was on a long list of medications including anit-depressants and migraine treatments. I was over 180 lbs(yes...terrible weight gain)I was dealing with pain from carpel tunnel syndrome and bulging disk in my neck.
I slept every opportunity that I could.
The depression was eating away at my soul

I am now down to 160 and only on 2 daily meds and 2 migraine meds as needed. I removed myself from anti-depressants so I am no longer prisoner to those.
My carpal tunnel and bulging disc pain is gone.

Things are looking up! Now the weight has to come down!!!


Member Since: 7/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 19,207

My Goals:
I need to drop at least 40 lbs. My husband,father,and uncle all have diabetes. That's not happening to me. No only is the disease dangerous,but I am EXTREMELY PHOBIC of blood drawing. I bypass bloodwork at checkups. I only allowed it when I was pregnant with my children.
Gaining strong (not bulky) muscle is very important. I love being a strong little woman. When we made our move 9 years ago my husband and I moved almost all of our belongings out together without help of movers. 4'11 and kicking butt!!!



My Program:
My eating habits have been pretty bad. I've been chomping down on pretty much anything I'm in the mood for. Little Debbie and Frito Lay had been good 'friends' ...talk about a TOXIC RELATIONSHIP!!!
I plan to cut those guys out,as well as the sweetened drinks...I LOVE SWEET TEA.
Parking in the back of parking lots to gain extra steps,walking the dog 15 minutes longer each day,staying away from my chair at work as much as possible.
Im taking REALLY slow steps to ensure that I don't set my self up to fail.

    Your pup is half Jack Russell and half Dachshund? That must be one fun yet stubborn little dog! I'm also a huge dachshund lover. Your profile pic about your height caught my eye; I too am 4'11". I love how detailed your goals are and I'm going to update mine. I'm also adding you as a friend. It's nice to "meet" you!

    HI I just read you comment on Kurtis' passing blog. I might of read it before and thanked you then. Your thought are comforting and thankful you had that root beer in honor of him.

    He was so thirsty hours before he passed and they wouldn't let him have anything to drink. Get this it might compromise his lungs causing him to go into respitory distress and die. He was dying it was just a matter of time. I cannot believe that they wouldn't give him adequate pain medication stating that he might get addicted to them. He was dying had been for about 3 years. It would of been nice to have him not have so suffer so much in the last 6 months. I would of gave him that drink since he was so darn thirsty. But they had cameras all over the room so that a tech could monitor the patients when their nurse was busy. I know he wouldn't of aspirated it anyhow. This is how he had been for the last month or so. I really could kick myself for not doing it. Yet so many friends here on Sparks have had one for him. :) and it does bring me peace that he is not suffering any longer and is in a much better place trying on those legs that work since he was born paralyzed from Spina Bifida.

    He is now dancing with angels not worry about what a girl would say when he asked them to dance. He went to all his school dances and would make sure that the girls that didn't get asked would get a chance to dance. Only one girl had a negative remark. On his memorial page a high school friend comments. "Thank you Kurtis, you were my first dance and my first friend in high school. I can't wait to dance with you again!" It was really the sweetest comment I read on that particular page.

    Have a great weekend. You brightened my day as I was sitting here remembering a lot of things from when he was little.
