Hey everyone! I joined SparkPeople so I can lose weight and get healthy by receiving inspiration as well as hopefully returning some. My children have inspired me to get back on track with my weight loss. I was in shape growing up. I showed my horses and loved to barrel race. But after I quit smoking in 1986, a year after I married my wonderful husband, Bill, I began gaining weight. It was a sneak attack, you know, a couple of pounds here and there. Each time I was pregnant, I saw an excuse to eat more and more, and gain more and more. (I loved Hawaiian Pizza way too much!). My oldest daughter, Melissa, introduced me to Sparkspeople. At first I only joined so I would have the tools to track my food intake and exercise. But I now realize how wonderful it is to also receive, and hopefully return, all the inspiration needed to continue on this journey! As for my personal life, I have been married to my wonderful husband for 33 years! We have four terrific kids, Brad 31, Mark 29, Melissa 25 and Lauren 22. I also have two wonderful daughter in laws, Danielle and Courtney, three beautiful granddaughters, Callie 12, Kylie 8 and Brylie 5year old. Also three handsome grandsons, Ryan 8, Bryson 7, and Randall 2! My family is my life and they keep me pretty darn busy. I returned to college at 44 years old and earned my AA degree. I am semi-retired but still work for a specialty yarn shop in La Conner, Washington! I love to do crafts, especially knitting! I also keep stats for our local high school basketball and softball teams! I am a huge sports fan and LOVE MY SEAHAWKS and MARINERS, always have, always will! And I love any sports my kids or grandkids are playing! If you want to know anything else, or just want to talk, don't be shy...just ask!
