My name is Fredielyn and I am a mother of two grown children and a grandmother of two. I live just outside San Francisco, in Marin County. I love art and have a business of interior design. I redo rooms in homes using what my client already owns. I just re-design creating a fresher and updated look. I have been on SparkPeople since early February 2, 2015. As of August 2015 I have been weighing in at 119 lbs; I lost a total of 51 lbs. I have been on maintenance now for over 3 years.
My hope is to inspire sparkers to live life to the fullest! It isn't just about eating less and moving more. It is about living life on life's terms. It is about how you deal with emotions. It is what to do when a curve ball strikes and you are overwhelmed. Dealing with the truth without overeating is what makes losing weight successful. Best of luck everyone! ;o)

Member Since: 2/9/2015

My Goals:
My goal is just handling maintenance the rest of my life. That's the deal now.

My Program:
Though I do leg and core exercises at night; I take very long walks every day of the week. I am also active all day long. I eating clean, loads of veggies, protein and try to drink a lot of water.

Personal Information:
I am a native San Franciscan and now live 20 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County.I volunteer for Hospice at their resale boutique once to two times a week. I am also a member of a sorority where we assist needy and handicapped children and young adults.

Other Information:
I thrive on being creative. I have completely decorated the cottage that I live in now reflecting the gift I have with an artistic eye. I love my profession to make my clients dreams come true by re-organizing (de-cluttering) and re-decorating.

    OH, my dear, I will. Having a knee replacement sometime in August or September (will find out in August @ my consult). So, I know it'll be after that. Can't wait. Miss my fur baby!

    Thank you for being an inspiration to so many Sparkers. I too have been on maintenance (always within 10 pounds of my goal weight for 16 months) and stay with Spark people to inspire others. I believe one needs to search their soul for direction in life and find a way to contribute to society as best as you can. We need more people who feel like that such as you.
    P.S. I know that you said you just blog and don't do spark teams but since your passion is to help people in your area declutter and redecorate their homes, the team "Organized Life and Time Management" (go to "") shares the same interests as you. Mr. Owl

    I kind of wonder if that was who it was. I remember you bloging about him a couple years ago.
