Hi my name is Monika. I am 55 years old and I need to get with it. I lost 15 lbs a year and a half ago and gained it back and more. I basically would like to lead a healthy lifestyle and not eat to just eat. So this is my new adventure. Wish me luck!!! I am in Phase II now. I have about 10 lbs left to lose . I know this is going to the hardest time so I am going to continue to eat healthy and exercise regularly. I began switching up my exercise to intense walking on the treadmill along with strength training and cycle. I have met so many amazing people here I recently lost my beloved Lab Ranger and you guys were so supportive Thank you. Blessings to all of you Let's continue to live a healthy , happy, and peaceful lifestyle. We can do this!!! Update July 20 2017. I met my goal of 150. I have one goal left and that would be to reach my ideal weight of 145 and then to maintain this healthier lifestyle. You have been so great my Spark community. I have made so many friends and I love this community and what it stands for. Praise God and blessing tos to everyone!! Update 10/21/17 I finally hi reached my goal of 145. Thank you forget all the support. The task now is to maintain the 145 and not regain. Blessings to Spark community you are the best group of people ๐Ÿ’ซNovember 8, 2017 I am 56 today. I feel strong and healthy. I'm so blessed. Praise God. Thx Spark community ๐Ÿ™‚ for all your support Update: Feb. 15, 2019 I have gained almost 10 pounds since Thanksgiving. At first I didn't care. I gained a couple of pounds at a time.. then bam.. It has always been so hard for me to lose weight since I quit smoking 9 yes ago. It has been rough. I know better. I'm back in track with my eating and exercise. Spark community ๐Ÿ™‚ has helped me refocus. Let's keep Sparking. Blessings to everyone ๐ŸŒž.

    Hi! I am so glad you are getting caught up at work! Yay! That is wonderful news. I have been trying to do my winter cleaning. I also made some healthy banana muffins the other day. I hope things are going well for you. Winter can be a trial to stay on track, never mind being overloaded at work. I seem to be pretty much staying on track but I have SAD so I do have off days to be sure. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey Monika!

    Today is a side hustle, Sparkpeople and book reviewing day. I just wrote you an entire dissertation, but the cat jumped on the keyboard and off into cyberspace it went.

    My Keurig is finally working! I went without him for a couple of weeks. I ran vinegar through but did not work. So, I bought a new internal tank filter. The darn contraption still sounds loud, but I am not complaining!

    We got a little snow overnight, but not much.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Message me if you get bored!
