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 am doing OK, Hon. Yesterday went smoothly. Some tears when Preacher Virgil had us sing Amazing Grace. That song alone gets all 3 of us crying. Drove up to grandkids( hour drive) this morning. Day was peaceful (in spite of the 7 and 4 yr boys) and saw some friends. I do believe I may get some good hours of sleep tonight. Then back to Gar and all the "goings on" there. emoticon emoticon
