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 :-)

    It's 'Send a Traveling Postcard Day' on the (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! )))) Team!

    I'm sending you a huge HELLO from Fleetwood, Pennsylvania!

    Fleetwood is a small, rural town. We only have two traffic lights....
    There are a ton of Mennonite farms in the area... We share the road with horses and buggies.
    The Fleetwood Cadillac was named after our town, as there used to be a metal automobile coachbuilder manufacturing plant here.
    We are about an hour and a half from Philadelphia.

    Hope you have a wonderful 'Travelin' through SPARKpeople' Tuesday!

    Let's Travel Tuesday!
    I'm sending you a huge HELLO from South Carolina!

    The state dance of South Carolina is the Shag!

    Before being known as the Palmetto State, South Carolina was known as, and had emblazoned on their license plates, the Iodine State.

    In February 1852 William Burkhalter Dorn discovered the second richest vein of gold in SC history on the site of the present town of McCormick.

    The Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport was the first airport in South Carolina opening in October 1927.
