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 :-)

    “The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, “It’s okay.”
    It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong.
    It’s okay to get mad. It’s okay to be flawed. It’s okay to be happy.
    It’s okay to move on. It's okay to be me.”
    ~Hayley Williams~

    You laugh, I laugh...you cry, I cry.
    You fall, I laugh, then fall too, because I was laughing too hard.
    I laugh even harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My favorite pain is in my stomach when my friends make me laugh too hard.
    Nothing compares with the stomach ache I get from laughing with my
    best friend..that awkward moment when you can't stop laughing while
    telling a joke, and when you're finally done, your friend doesn't even get it.

    emoticon Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects
    Please take it regularly emoticon

    emoticon emoticon "One Day Before emoticon Christmas Day emoticon emoticon

    It's finally come down to one for trying to get everything done.
    I know I've forgotten to buy gifts, or sent cards to everyone.
    Some baking was overdone and all the cleaning didn't get all done.
    But even though it's not all done, that's not what is important to everyone.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    What's really important is the true meaning of Christmas and the gifts of
    Peace, Hope, Love, & Happiness that we celebrate and share
    with our family, and our friends we know and love, and to others
    (to far away from home, or have no one at all) who need our love.
    emoticon emoticon So now I'm wishing everyone to celebrate emoticon emoticon

    It's not the presents that make Christmas so special
    It's the presence of those you love,
    whether they are with you in person or spirit!

    This day is a day to reflect before Christmas of Christmas pasts!
    We all have things we remember, and the memories it brings.
    Making snowmen, and angels in the snow.
    Singing Christmas carols, watching Christmas shows on black/white TV
    Shopping for Mom and Dad, sisters, brothers, friends
    trying to find them that special something
    They will love and cherish for years to come.
    Wrapping their gifts with the prettiest paper,
    the biggest bows and ribbons just for them, listening to Christmas music
    The opening of gifts from Santa Claus with smiles & laughter
    Knowing you were the luckiest person alive.
    The getting together of relatives, and friends.
    Sitting together, sharing the best Christmas meal.
    And filling the house with noise, laughter, and love.
    This is a day to reflect on some of the best days we ever had.

    The best gifts can't often be packed inside a box ..
    how can you wrap shared laughter and tears or talks that run into hours?
    They can only be wrapped & treasured in our hearts
