Pebbles - one of my many nicknames (this one is from when I USED to go to the gym)

This is when I was still at a healthy weight in 2004, right after my 2nd child was born.

This is part of my EXTRA large head now. Too embarassed to show the rest of me!

Hi SparkPeople! I joined this site 3/2/10, and I love it! What a great place to meet people for motivation and tips and just general information. I also love the trackers! WOW!~

Me in a nutshell: I am 44 years old, need to lose about 65 pounds. I have been married to the most awesome man for 18 years, and we have 2 daughters, ages 5 and 10.

I work from home as a medical transctiptionst, and from my chair in front of the computer, I'm getting wider and wider. My goal is first and foremost to stop that, and secondly to become healthier!

My goals that I hope to accomplish through this site are:
1) Drink 8 glasses of water per day
2) Start and stay with an exercise program
3) Take my vitamins daily
4) To eat with nutrition in mind, not empty calories
5) To make new like-minded friends while here
6) To help motivate and encourage others
7) Stop negative self-talk
8) Improve quality of life with the above goals!

If any or all of these are your goals too, feel free to add me as your SparkFriend, and we'll work together to meet our goals.

    So I'm terrible at sparkpeople navigation and just noticed that you commented on a blog post of mine. I'd like to thank you so much for your support. Telling me it's ok to start new everyday really helps to reshape my brain. So even if I'm almost two months late thank you so much for taking the time to comment and support a stranger.

    Hi Sandy, I'm new to Spark people. Glad to see you have 2 days normal FBS. Dr. just told me last week I'm pre-diabetic. Because of some other medical problms I want to do everything I can ot avoid taking anymore meds. I'm realy hating having to stick myself twice a day. Best wishes on the rest of your journey. I do all I can to encourage you along the way. Vickie

    On May 8, 2010 Joan and I walked a two mile race thingy for our local barbecue festival. The same day, one of my Spark buddies PRINCESSNURSE ran her first half marathon in Indianapolis.

    I was sore and achy and never thoughnt I'd move again. Two days later I began C25K. It was tough but when I made it up that monster hill it was all worth it.

    I am learning to become my own inspiration. It will feel so amazing the day you begin to feel that you are becoming yours. I'm right there with you

    Much Love

    Oh my goodness, you're so sweet! I am proud to have you for a SparkBuddy too! I'm glad you find some encouragement from that blog. It really helped me get over myself that day. emoticon

    emoticon Trust me! I really never thought I could. I never, ever exercised in my life. And I'd thought I already was eating healthy enough. I just didn't think I could get this far...and look! So you will too, I know it. I'd be happy to work on that nagging inner woman together. emoticon

    JohnTJ1 is indeed awesome, isn't he? I hope you're still feeling great and looking toward a wonderful weekend!
