Hello and welcome to my page! Let me start out by saying, I'm TERRIBLE at these sort of things - I never know what to say...so, here goes...

I'm 30 years old and I started living a healthier lifestyle in February 2009. I would like to lose about 103 pounds total...my "healthy" weight range says about 100-110 pounds to lose. I will be happy with 103, but won't slack off if I continue to lose once I get there! I'm a super busy person working 2 jobs (full time Insurance Customer Service Representative and part time Cashier/Customer Service at a liquor store). I am also a member of the planning committee for the 2011 Relay for Life for the county I live in. It takes a lot of work & time, but I love the feeling I get when I volunteer! I got braces in September 2009 and lots of healthy foods are no-no's according to my orthodontist...I am proving him wrong though! (haha) That being said, I don't have a lot of spare time (obviously) to work out, eat healthy or cook...although I have learned to make time for it since joining SP! Before joining, I had gotten into a BAD habit of going to a fast food drive thru instead of popping a Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice frozen dinner in the microwave. I was eating fast food for about 20 (yes 20) out of the 27 meals I'd have a week! I do allow myself to have fast food on occasion, but when I do, I make MUCH healthier choices! ..except for Saturday morning breakfasts...I'm going to try to work on that this year! I have changed all of my bad eating habits for the most part - of course, I slip on occasion (but who doesn't?!), but I don't beat myself up over it...I pick myself up, dust myself off and keep on Sparkin'! Hopefully with the continued help of this website and my new, positive SparkBuddies, I can continue on the right path!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask...I'm a pretty open person and love to meet new people. Also, I'm not too active on here (as far as posting on the message boards and such)...working so much doesn't allow me to be, but I do log everything I eat and all of my scheduled fitness (meaning that when I work at my 2nd job or heavy cleaning, it's very physical, but I do not count that)! Don't get discouraged if you send me a message or comment and it takes me a few days to reply...I will get back to you - I promise! Thanks for stopping by my page!

Fitness Minutes: 23,509

My Goals:
I would like to get back to my high school weight (AND maintain that weight)...all while being HEALTHY and exercising!

My Program:
I am learning how to eat healthier and exercise. Before joining SP, I hadn't done ANY physical activity in about 6 years. I started out slow and have built myself up...I don't over-do myself because I don't want to loose motivation.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Brenham, Texas. (Ever heard of Blue Bell Ice Cream? It's made here...) I moved away for a brief time, but I'm back...and settled here now. I'm single and own my home on 4 acres. I LOVE it! I am a state licensed insurance customer service representative full time, a cashier/customer service part-time at a local liquor store as well as a part time wedding/party bartender.

Other Information:
I have 1 child...well, I have a very spoiled, high maintenance Calico cat named Elizabeth. haha She has very distinctive markings and she definitely gets whatever it is she wants. I would love to have a Yellow or Chocolate Lab, but Elizabeth is definitely not having that! If you can't tell, I LOVE animals! I would have a whole yard full if I could afford it.
