I've always been the girl who could stand to lose a few pounds. I was never fat, but yet I was never thin. After college the pounds slowly starting adding, and after marriage and a child they stayed in bigger chunks.

I joined Spark people in June of 2007 and it was the best decision I have ever made. I lost 30 pounds and was halfway to my goal weight. I was 159 lbs!! But somewhere along the way I ran off track. Waaaaaay I found myself at my all-time high weight.

I've come back to visit several times over the years, but this time I need to get some results! As a heart patient I'm also a member of a family with a history of heart disease and diabetes. It's time to get back on track and give myself the gift of a long healthy, happy life.

Starting over again, April 2016. I'm already down 32 pounds!

Member Since: 6/14/2007

Fitness Minutes: 15,341

My Goals:
HW: 230
SW: 228
GW: 129

My Program:
I'm trying not to "diet" but to eat sensibly. I don't want to feel deprived, or constantly hungry, but to get into a good routine I can live with. I want to eat what I want, but to meet my caloric and nutritional goals, and to be able to get right back on track if I've stumbled.

Personal Information:
I live in Burton, Michigan and am married with a 14 year old son. I work full time third shift.

Other Information:
I love tracing my ancestry and I am an avid member and contributor at Find A Grave dot com!

I have a love of crime shows, science fiction and any shows full of mystery with a bit of paranormal creepiness! I love Rizzoli & Isles, Orphan Black, Sleepy Hollow, Covert Affairs, Elementary, Haven and I'm still mourning the loss of Fringe and Wearhouse 13.

    Sorry, this crazy phone. Should say Metaforman.... Well. Thanks for the message, I appreciate, I have a lot a head of me to figure out, but I am realizing how many people out there have diabetes and they feel overwhelmed like me at times.

    I know its pretty scary when it runs in the family. Both of my parents have it, two brothers and grandparents on both sides. I am on metaformanmet a form an right now and I totally changes my diet around, while trying to find time to exercise.

    Howdy and welcome to the Browncoat Team!

    We're a kind of laid back bunch that enjoys any and all discussion of Firefly, Serenity, and anything our BDHs are involved in. Or whatever else we decide to talk about! Please nose around and feel free to jump in!

    Some of us sometimes post on the team wall with quotes from Firefly or Serenity. It adds nice memories and fun. Join in if you would like. Or check to see what the quotes are.

    Also, please join one or more of our team goals and post about your goals and activities in the Food/Weight Loss/Fitness Discussions Forum. The team goals are set up to emulate our BDHs - a shiny goal for any of us!
