I’m a 60-year-old grandmother who lives in Long Beach, a community in the beach cities of Los Angeles. My husband and I enjoy riding our bikes all over California!

Dave and I have been married 32 years and have two daughters: Deidre and Erica. Deidre presented us with our first granddaughter, Leah, November 2005.

I appreciate Sparkpeople because, with the tools at this site, I was able to start and STAY on my journey to a healthy lifestyle. I have started these changes many times in the past, but gave up after a few months. But now it’s different. There has always been something at this site that draws me in and keeps me going towards my goals. It may be the fun or spinning the wheel or blowing off steam in Spark Café or earning the next trophy!

And my discovery at Sparkpeople has led me to a raw food lifestyle. My daughter dropped off a flyer for a wellness center where he got a great massage. But I didn’t see the massage on the flyer but instead the description for weight loss through acupuncture! I couldn’t get it out of my mind so I stopped by and before I knew it, I became a regular client. Dr Kim, my acupuncturist, put me on a raw vegetable diet as part of my weight loss program.

Dr Kim says Western medicine has it all wrong. In order to lose weight you must eat food that forces your body to draw on the fat it has stored to run your body. Eating raw veggies forces the body to burn the fat it has stored. I am a testament to the truth of that statement: after 6 weeks I have lost 20 pounds!!!

Look at my blog for a journal of my journey to heath.

My Program:
Joining SparkPeople has helped me focus on my two goals and have the tools to make them happen!

I am tracking my calories, exercise, sleep and water intake. I also have the support through diet buddy and articles and daily emails to get the mental part focused on success. These are all important aspects of my life that I am finally changing. These are the unhealthy habits I have embraced most of my life.

Personal Information:
I'm from Los Angeles, CA. I was born here and have lived here all my life. I am married and will celebrate our 25-year anniversary in July 2006. We have 2 daughters ages are 23 and 21. We also have a wonderful granddaughter who is 18 months old.

Other Information:
Check out these sites!!!

Now I can eat out and KNOW what I'm eating.

    Dear KJeanne, Glad you contacted me. I have 2 people I'm doing Beck with and one is starting over soon. I'll be out of state visiting my mom Aug 13-19. Come the 20th I'll be back and raring to go. Will that suit you?? -Marsha

    I laughed when I read your mileage post. So Pennsylvania isn't the only state that has headwinds that blow depending on which direction you're pedaling! I thought that was unique to Pennsylvania. The other phenomenon in PA is that the sun shines the brightest/hottest when you're on the steepest section of a long hill. emoticon

    Have a great week. Happy cycling!
