My name is Fredielyn and I am a mother of two grown children and a grandmother of two. I live just outside San Francisco, in Marin County. I love art and have a business of interior design. I redo rooms in homes using what my client already owns. I just re-design creating a fresher and updated look. I have been on SparkPeople since early February 15, 2015. As of August 2015 I have been weighing in at 119 lbs; I lost a total of 51 lbs. I have been on maintenance now for over 3 years.
My hope is to inspire sparkers to live life to the fullest! It isn't just about eating less and moving more. It is about living life on life's terms. It is about how you deal with emotions. It is what to do when a curve ball strikes and you are overwhelmed. Dealing with the truth without overeating is what makes losing weight successful. Best of luck everyone! ;o)

Member Since: 2/9/2015

My Goals:
My goal is just handling maintenance the rest of my life. That's the deal now.

My Program:
Though I do leg and core exercises at night; I take very long walks every day of the week. I am also active all day long. I eating clean, loads of veggies, protein and try to drink a lot of water.

Personal Information:
I am a native San Franciscan and now live 20 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County.I volunteer for Hospice at their resale boutique once to two times a week. I am also a member of a sorority where we assist needy and handicapped children and young adults.

Other Information:
I thrive on being creative. I have completely decorated the cottage that I live in now reflecting the gift I have with an artistic eye. I love my profession to make my clients dreams come true by re-organizing (de-cluttering) and re-decorating.

    I am Ellen . . . and a "shout out" is just basically an appreciative reference to you and your blog in my blog today.

    Fredie, my page is set to share with others when I post a blog, and we're mutual friends, so it should show up on your friend feed when I blog. I'm guessing that I haven't blogged in so long and you may have missed it on the friend feed last time, so the blog notification is probably appearing on the feed and you don't notice. That happens to me, too, and I miss other people's blogs. Next time I blog, I'll let you know and you can see if it appears on your feed. Another way not to miss blogs is to click on "subscribe," which you'll see on any blog you read here, and if you've set your account to send emails when that blogger posts, you'll get a notification..

    It's really kind of you to read my blogs and be happy about our furry girls. And I'm so glad you're enjoying seeing Lev grow and change, even if it has to be from afar! He must be so cute at this age!

    I didn't know how much I appreciated those re-usable cloth bags until we COULDN'T use them. I hate that they use so many., like today she put a box of Saran Wrap in the bag all by itself. Really how much does that weigh. You come home with 20 bags and if I could have used my cloth ones we could have got by with 7, a lot less trips from the van to the house. I don't thnk the store even knows what a paper bag is anymore. lol
