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 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 :-)

    People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
    Love them anyway.
    If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
    Do good anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
    Succeed anyway.
    The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
    Do good anyway.
    Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
    Be honest and frank anyway.
    The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be
    shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
    Think big anyway.
    What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
    Build anyway.
    People really need help but may attack if you help them.
    Help people anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and you might get kicked in the teeth.
    Give the world the best you've got anyway.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon How God Created Mother emoticon emoticon emoticon
    God took the fragrance of a flower, the majesty of a tree.
    The gentleness of morning dew, the calm of a quiet sea.
    The beauty of a twilight hour, the soul of a starry night,
    The laughter of a rippling brook, the grace of a bird in flight,
    Then God fashioned from these things, a creation like no other.
    And when his masterpiece was through, He called it simply...MOTHER
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    ~~**~~Beautiful Quotes About Mother's~~**~~
    "A Mother is a person seeing there is only 4 pieces of pie
    for five people, promptly announces that she never did care for pie."
    ~~~"God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made Mothers"~~~
    "If I had a flower for each time I thought of My Mother, I could walk in my garden forever"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "You never appreciate all of the things your Mother did for you until you find yourself doing the same things for your kids"
    ~~~~ "There should be more then one day to celebrate the women who raised us."~~~~
    "Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a Mother."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "The most beautiful necklace a Mother can wear is not gold or gem, but her child's arms around her neck"
    ~~~~"...some do not believe in miracles...yet God created MOTHER'S..."~~~~
    "You know you're a Mother when the smallest whimper from your child
    can wake you from a dead sleep"
