Okay, I've been a member of Spark for over 18 months, and it's time to update my page. In the past 6 months, I've dropped from 252 to 218 pounds. In that same period, I've gone from wearing size 24W pants to size 18W, which is the size I wore when I graduated high school, 22 years ago! Woo Hoo!!

I guess you can say that I am highly competitive, and that Spark is giving me a great place to channel that spirit. Trust me, my husband is grateful! ~smiles~ It helps keep me motivated, and moving!

Member Since: 6/7/2007

Fitness Minutes: 43,123

My Goals:
1. To get down to 200 pounds, then 180, then maybe 160?

2. To be able to run the loop at the Army Heritage and Education Center.

3. To get the kids eating healthier.

4. Work on getting this medical suspense drama idea to grow, from being merely a germ of an idea into something substantial and serious, like maybe a plague. ~weg~

5. Finish transcribing the Merchant family letters and see about getting them published.

6. Continue researching my Civil War veterans buried here in Cumberland County, and pull together booklets for each cemetery. Looking for photos of each man, as well as information on their life AFTER the war.

My Program:
Am WALKING a LOT more! In fact, I have made 10,000 steps a day my goal.

No more soda, not even Icees! Water or Crystal LIght are my drinks of choice now!

Working on the CW Veterans buried in my town. Currently taking photos of headstones, as well as researching local Census records.

Personal Information:
Originally from Upstate New York, now living in the Carlisle, Pennsylvania area.

Happily married to my soul mate, and stepmom to three.

Other Information:
Proud descendant of Union Veterans of the Civil War!
