Hi my name is Tina, welcome to my page. Please grab a spot of coffee, sit awhile and feel free to read my page and look through my photos.


I have been overweight since the doctor told me that I was going to have a baby, back in 1978. I was 20 years old and had no idea about healthy eating, meal planning or weight management. After all, I was 115 pounds and had been at that weight for a very long time.

When I was pregnant I ate everything and anything I wanted. Cookies were my best friend. In the 9 months my weight crept up a whopping 80 pounds, and my doctor said nothing!! Nobody said a word, not my husband or my mom or anyone else. (so sad, really)

So, you would have thought that I would learn something from the first pregnancy about watching my weight, but NO, for my second pregnancy, two years later, I found myself in the same boat with no paddles, so to speak. I had not lost more than 40 pounds from the first time and started gaining like crazy again. Before I knew it I was up another 65 pounds. CRAZY!!

As we do the math here, we do see that I have had since November of 1981 to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. As the years went by I did learn how to cook healthier meals, make better choices when it comes to food. In 1998, I did stick to a very lowfat diet and walked alot and lost 55 pounds, BUT...did I work to keep it off?? of course not!!

So here it is, January 5, 2019 and I am still overweight, actually, considered obese if you want to go by the BMI chart, but I don't like that label because it does not define who I am. I have been a member on Sparkpeople since 2013 and have lost a few pounds but not nearly the amount I need to lose to be comfortable with myself.

With all the above being said I now, as of January 5, 2019, I am on a mission and am making a new commitment to MYSELF to turn my life around, to make ME number 1, to get ME to a happier place, a healthier place, a place where only I will be able to get to. With the help and support from my friends here at Sparkpeople and my friends at home, I know that 2019 is going to be the year that changes my life!!!!

My Goals:
I have a lot of goals such as feeling comfortable in my own skin, not having aching joints, looking good in a cute outfit, getting to 170 pounds. I could go on and on about those goals....but what I really want is to be healthy on the inside. I want to bring down the blood pressure, bring down the cholesterol numbers, have a healthy, strong heart.....decrease my chances of getting cancer. But mostly I want to live a long happy, healthy life to watch my 3 grandchildren grow to become adults. They are 5, 9 and 11, so I have a long way to go. I want to be the best me I can be!!!


My Program:
1) Follow a 1200 calorie diet.
2)Drink water.....lots of water....and then drink some more.
3)Walk on my trusty treadmill or walk outside for as long as I can.
4) Keep tracking my food, water and exercising on my tracking pages.



Personal Information:
My name is Tina. I live in southwest Indiana with my high school sweetie and best friend and hubby for 41 years. We have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren who are the light of our lives. I like photography and cooking. I have been cooking professionally since 1987 and still love to whip up an interesting meal.


Other Information:
Whose words these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Stopping By Woods On a Snowy Evening written by Robert Frost in 1922

    Pushing is a fundamental of life. So why do so many resist it? Because it’s uncomfortable, it is unknown . . . . and sometimes it hurts. Rhonda Nails
