Hi! My name is Moni and welcome to my SparkPage!!! After my second son was born, my weight was out of control. One day reading an article in a Woman's magazine there was a write-up on SparkPeople. I logged on but did not really work the program. Well one day I was fed up with being fed-up and started working the program. My heaviest weight was well over 275 lbs. At first I would drink water. Then I worked on eating fruits and veggies. I would do 10 mins of exercise daily and now I am up to 60 mins. plus of activity. I also sign up for 5K races during the season!!! From a Couch Potato to Walk/Jogging 5Ks!!! I know I still have more work to do but I love the way I feel!! I love that I have energy and I love that I have a smile on my face from ear to ear. If I can do it - so can you. I am working on the new me one baby step at a time. So join me on this awesome journey. You won't regret it!! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Moni :-)

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

    emoticon emoticon FOR MOTHER'S DAY~~JUST A MOM emoticon emoticon

    She cant stand it when people say, "You're JUST a mom?"
    Yes, she is a Mother!
    That makes her an alarm clock, cook, maid, waitress,
    teacher, nurse, referee, handyman, security officer,
    photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner,
    hairdresser, personal assistant, & an ATM machine.
    She scares away the boogieman. She doesn't get paid holidays,
    sick pay or days off. She works DAY & NIGHT.
    She's on call 24/7 for the rest of her life.
    She's 'JUST A MOM'!!!
    She is a Mom to someone or to many and she would
    do ANYTHING on this planet for them!
    She's..... 'JUST A MOM"!!.

    ah-hmm just different pov
    Could be too that I did shave my head- several years ago. Rocked it loved it....considering it again because of pandemic and hair stylist difficult to get appointments with. But- in the grand scheme of things it is only hair.
    Saves money too.

    Inside every strong and independent woman, was once a broken little girl
    who had to learn how to get back up and not depend on anyone.
