It's been a rollercoaster ride all these years; sometimes literally since I used to work at amusement parks. I am going to attempt to settle into middle-age. HA! Who am I kidding I'm not settling anywhere and don't want to "act my age" for sure! I love color! I love unique and quirky and creative and the obscure... whether it be my hair, personality, gifts or gadgets. don't be boring

    Kimberly, Everyday, as I log into Sparkpoeple, I read a motivational piece and yours caught my eye. I, too, suffer from bipolar disorder in addition to being having hypothyroidism. Your story was truly an inspiration and validates what I am doing (and what I did in the past). I have "lurked around " on the Sparkpeople site forever it seems, and now, I am making a consecrated effort to log in, report my progress or/or not progress, and learn to love Gail.

    Thank you so much. I went ahead and added you as a friend. I hope that was not too presumptuous of me. You rock! You are emoticon

    Hi! I saw your success story and came to check out your page. I freaking love your hair! I'm turning 30 this year and decided to dye my hair purple for the first time. Screw it, just do it lol. Anyway your approach to changing your lifestyle and everything really inspired me. I lost about 40 lbs last year on spark and over the holidays and after the new year have had a hard time getting back in the swing of things so some inspiration right now is much needed. Great work!!!
