My name is Cami. I am 48 years old.

I started a weight loss program because I need to have spinal surgery. I was thrilled when my Dr. offered to help me by providing the diet as I have been trying to loose the weight for years, only to keep gaining. I have several chronic autoimmune related issues that make it difficult to loose weight and keep going day to day.

However, I am a naturally positive "get er done" kinda person, so I am thrilled to be on this new journey. I am also trying to quit smoking at the same time. My short term goal is to be as healthy as I can be before surgery to make recovery easier post op. My longer term goal is to feel like I did when I was in my 30's.

I have 3 wonderful grown children who are the bane of my existence. I practice meditation and self hypnosis and am very spiritual by nature, though not the least bit religious.

I am happy to be a part of a group of people so motivated and encouraging.

Yay us!

My Goals:
Overall goal is to loose like 90 lbs, quit smoking, get back surgery, then when allowed to exercise again...tone that stuff up! : ) Will need to be patient with myself as these are obviously ambitious goals. The surgery will take place in the middle somewhere and may set me back a bit on weight loss. The smoking is going to be harder than all of it. But, I am feeling confident, motivated and spiritually strong, which for me is the biggest component. I CAN DO IT.

My Program:
Physician prescribed. No exercise allowed at this time.

When I reach 150 lbs I will spend the money to send myself to an alternative Spiritually based Wellness Retreat in my area that I never let myself go to because of the cost.

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.” by Anne Frank

Personal Information:
Hmmm....I double majored in English and Philosphy and graduated with honors. I intended to go to law school but divorced my husband and had to raise three kids on my own with pretty much no support. Kids are raised now, and I am doing what I can to take care of me! It's a new adventure and I''m scared and excited by it. However, I need to get my health in order to do all those things I didn't get to do...so....here I am!!! YAY!

Other Information:
“There is no use trying; one can't believe impossible things." (Alice)

"I dare say you haven't had much practice. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Queen

This is our moment. This is our time - to reaffirm that fundamental truth -
that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes We Can.

    I'm coming back to Sparkpeople, log my food and do what I need to do. I tried for so many months to do it on my own without success. Just got to get back on track.

    Hope you are doing well, Marina

    Tag your it:A "Beautiful Woman Award" is going around I thought this would be appropriate for anyone...

    "Beautiful Person Award!"

    Once you've been given this award, you may paste it on the wall of 8 people who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really a beautiful person! If you choose not to pass it on, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're a beautiful person inside and out."

    And you are truly a beautiful person, inside and out!
