I am so blessed, lucky, born under the right star, privileged or whatever you want to call it. I love my life. Health is Wealth and I want to be rich in health for a very very long time.

I am a small vegetable farmer in central iowa. yeah! All the free tasty organic vegetables I want! But a fat farmer?! What’s that all about? I am losing weight for my self, my career, my husband and my future kids. With SP I want to watch my portions, move my body this winter and Spread the Spark!

When I turned 19 I weighed 230 pounds and just had a mini break down. I didn't want to be held back by my body any longer. So I went to Weight Watchers with my mom (great buddy) and over 2 years I lost 80 pounds. I did it all on the CORE program. I heart CORE!

Then I met the man of my dreams and we got married and one late night snack after another adds up. Now I am back were I started. I am lucky learned so much about healthy food those ww years and my career even reflects that. I guess this is the part where I just keep standing up from my falls until I stay standing on solid ground. I Can DO THIS! We can do it together! Spark On friends!

    Thanks for noticing my comments. I don't think my high school students would agree with the sane part, but it is what I'm going for... emoticon

    Hi! Just a shout out to congratulate you!
    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!
    "Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!"

    How's everything going? How about another blog (or two)?

    Hope you're having a great day!

    I doubt it's grilling weather there, but got any kale to steam in that garden for tomorrow's holiday? Hope things are going well for you, my friend. emoticon

    It is so cool that you are a vegetable farmer. On my lunch and dinner plates, I try to cover about half of them with veggies and fruit. Wouldn't it be great to just walk outside and pick them! I used to have a veggie garden until I became a full-time teacher, but you're making me think I've got to put some seeds in some dirt this spring. emoticon
