HI! Welcome to my page.

What a crazy 2020 this has been. I thought this year I would do more traveling and see more things. I plan and God laughs!
I did get a 3 day trip to Pittsburgh in January and a one day trip to New York City in March (right before everything went crazy).

I live in Scranton, PA with my boyfriend, his daughter, one dog, one cat and three fish! For the summer months I enjoy spending time in my garden and relaxing in my back yard. Of course, I get a lot of exercise in the back yard by cutting grass, trimming grapevines, weeding and dog clean up!

I belong to two awesome groups here on SprarksPeople. One is the Biggest Loser Challenge where I am the Weight Loss Leader for the Pink Flamingos (this round I am also acting as overall leader). The other is the 5% Weight Loss Challenge and I am a Spirited Under Dawg where I am the Motivational Leader.

My Pink Flamingo challenge starts June 2nd and will run for 10 weeks. The Spirited Under Dawg challenge has 2 weeks left but will start up again right after that.

I love both of these challenges, groups and people. Being part of a group makes weight loss so much easier.

My boyfriend (Herb) has had many knee surgeries since 2017 and is still struggling to walk. He was in a straight cast for most of 2019 and put on a lot of weight. Together we are eating better, I'm exercising like crazy (Herb is doing what he physically can) and we are going to kiss some weight goodbye this summer.

I have been with sparkspeople for a long time but have had some set backs and I was on and off the wagon many times. Starting in January 2017 I have stayed with it and have not given up.

I re-learned how to exercise, eat right and most importantly stay in contact with my groups for support. Although my eating habits have a tendency to get out of hand (especially when I am stressed) - I try hard every day to make the right decisions (some days I fail but most days I succeed) - I love to eat and I have a big sweet tooth!

I am so thankful for all my friends here on SparksPeople - they are so motivational and help me stay on track. And are always there to get me back on track after a stressful day.

I have also found it very helpful to blog and I do not get blogs posted as often as I would like but when I get them posted I love to hear the feedback from everyone. Take a look some of my blogs and leave me a message!!

The beginning of 2019 I was 220 lbs and currently in May 2020 I am 249.5 lbs. Which is evidence that my weight is going in the wrong direction. I am not happy about it, but I'm moving forward.

I am actually happy in my body. I do not look in the mirror and cringe, but I know the weight is not a healthy weight for me. I am still working hard and dealing with stress the best I can and I know I will reach my goals.

My motto is: Never Give Up!

Eating right, exercising 6 days a week (with cardio and strength training), and taking time for me. I found yoga in 2018 and love it. I do that at least once a week, I do Refit and that is super fun!

I enjoy reading and watching TV - two very stationary activities. I am working on being more active with youtube videos and working around the house on many much needed projects. I hope Herb is able to walk soon and we will be able to do a lot more outside activities!
