I'm a mother a wife and a cancer survivor. I am now focused on eating healthy foods to get to and maintain a healthy weight. Life is so short... I don't want to waste another minute. I'll be 30 this year. Prior to cancer I thought that was old, now I couldn't feel younger... I am focusing each day on living life to the fullest and being the healthiest I can be so that one day I will be an old lady, wrinkled and gray, sitting on the porch watching my grandchildren play.

Member Since: 12/13/2010

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 70 pounds in one year. I know this is going to be a challenge, especially as I can't exercise... but I am willing to shoot for the moon if it means landing among the stars.

My Program:
My focus is on healthy natural unprocessed foods. This is very far from how I currently eat so it will be a lifestyle change for sure!!

Personal Information:
I am a Mom, a wife, and a cancer survivor! I will turn 30 in April of this year... a lot of life ahead of me and I don't want to spend the next 30 years being unhealthy complaining about my weight. 2011 is MY year!

Other Information:
What are some of my favorite things? My family, reading, watching movies, playing games... enjoying life. As far as movies go I LOVE romantic comedies. When I do get a chance to read my favorite author is Jodi Picoult. What's on my DVR? Mentalist, The Middle, Modern Family, Biggest Loser (of course!), The defenders, and a whole lot more... but those are the ones I make sure to find time to watch.

    Thanks for stopping by my Sparkpage. I have learned to live w/out the support. My daughter is a great supported and cheerleader so it helps. My sister in law just finished chemo for breast cancer. She always felt like crap too and ate whatever she could keep down. I am so glad to hear you beat the cancer -- diet should be easy.

    I look forward to supporting you and getting support from you also. Together (with Sparkpeople) we can do this.

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    I'm not sure if I responded to your comment on my home page you would see it? I am still trying to figure out this website, as I'm computer-stupid and don't even know how to download pics. Two boys also? Congrats! It's wonderful to have boys. Good luck to you on your goals, finally some YOU time!
