Hi there! I am 44 years old and the mother of 2 beautiful blessings! My daughter turned 22 in December and my son turned 15 in April. I am getting back on Sparkpeople to work on my initial goal. I have yo-yo'd for the past few years and really want this change. I have decided to follow VB6 as it fits well with my food allergies (dontcha just love getting "older"). I am trying to stay vegan at all times, but want to have the freedom to be out with family and friends without it becoming an issue, so I allow occasional meals that would normally be the after 6 part of the VB6 diet. I am interested in getting back into yoga locally and would love a workout buddy to walk, find a women's gym, and take yoga /pilates with me. Shout out if you are looking for that workout buddy in the Hillsboro/Cornelius area!

I am known for saying "No Worries" much as for my fondness for anything pink, sparkly....or for shoes!!! And iced tea is probably flowing in my veins....LOL

A friend in one of my teams recently reminded me of a quote I enjoy:

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable. -Helen Keller

I really feel keeping a positive attitude is essential. I also believe it is something, much like marriage, that requires constant tending to keep it alive, moving forward, healthy.

Another of my favorite sayings:

When life hands you a bowl full of lemons, make lemonade. Then, spike it with good vodka and call a GF!!

Have an EXCELLENT day!

My Goals:
I am here to lose weight - hoping to bring SEXY back and make sure I am FAB~U~LOUS by 40!! I want to be a cute Mommy -and have the energy I want to keep up with my family and the things I enjoy without thinking about any of it!

I need to Move it ~ Move it!!!! :)

I am feeling closer to succeeding all the time! I KNOW I will acheive my ultimate goal!

My Program:
After completing my first HcG protocol through my doctor... I felt better, healthier than ever and can sum the protocol FOR ME up with two little words.....LOVED IT. I have also completed the maintenance phase of the first round - 6 weeks of eating right...**UPDATE** I have completed my second round of Hcg now and am currently in my maintenance pahse of eating healthy and resetting my body. Success again - and I feel AWESOME! My hubby tried it this round and had amazing success. He feels terrific - more energy. Anyone local that wants to get together and 30 min workouts or yoga at home? Message Me!!!
I am thinking about joining my local Curves soon.

Personal Information:
I live in Cornelius, Oregon. I can be found and messaged on here - on (now if you strike up a freindship, then I will share more contact info. Fair enough? :)

Other Information:
I love an assortment of music but Sarah Maclachlan has to be my favorite artist. I have a really ecclectic taste in music. There isn't a lot I won't listen to - but I CAN say I don't often listen to country or modern rap.

My favorite thing to do is travel - I have been some terrific places with my husband, and I hope we are able to continue to see more places.

I have worked in semiconductors, dental assisting, retail and general office work to name a few things. Most recently, I have decided to return to school and change careers ~ hoping to become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (Ultrasound). I think that looking at babies (new life) all day would just make me happy. :) **Update** At this point, I am unable to locate any DMS program within a reasonable distance. Moving isn't an option for my schooling, so I am now looking at possibly PCC's Rad Tech program. :) One step at a time.

Both my husband and I really enjoy meet

    looks like I caught your cold UGHHH...I've been sick all weekend. Through that I managed to lose a whopping 2 more ounces LOL!!! what a life. Anyhoo...I don't even CARE about food plan/exercise right now, too sick and now I'm moving (last min) THIS Saturday! YIKES!! I don't anticipate blowing it out but I also don't anticipate being on here much so have a great week, shoot for 10 min walks at LEAST and keep tracking your food. We'll get there soon I just know it, after life gets out of the way! LOL
