Hello and thank you for stopping by my page. My name is Teresa, I live in Lancaster, CA. I have 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren. I work as a Para Professional with the school district and I love working with children. I started my journey with Sparkpeople back in 2006 and have yo-yoed ever since. I am not ever going to give up trying and striving to do better. I have more downs than ups however I am learning something new everyday.
Please feel free to leave me a commit, add me as a friend, read and subscribe to my blog, and by-all-means please share with me your tricks and inspirations along this healthy lifestyle.
God bless you!

    Hey there! I just saw your comment you left me a few months ago. I just got back on here. I had my first child in November and things have been pretty crazy until now. Thanks for checking on me. I’m ready to get back in the swing of things!
