My Goals:
I want to lose 40 pounds and feel good all over again. It wil e a long slow battle for me. I avrage 1 pound a week with a strict food plan and exercise. But, I have learned that it has to be a permanent life change. And I can't let emotional problems, momentary economic set backs and being out of the country I love be my excuses anymore.

My Program:
I a walking 30 to 60 minutes daily. Also using some outdoor exercise machines when I can get to them.Dong inside stretches when I can't. I am starting to write down all I eat . I have give up social drinking and drink 8 glasses of water with fresh squeezed lemon juiceeach day.

Personal Information:
I am from Long Island, New York,. A mother of 1 30 year old son, and presently living overseas in Alacati,Turkey As petty as it is here , I want to move back to America.Believe me when I say "there's no place like home" when you a American. We have to wait out this economic crisis in order to be able to sell.
My email address is:

Other Information:
I love musicals, swimming sports, singing ,and theater, Also I enjoy dawng,arts and crafts, and making jewelry as hobbies.

    I just read your posting on the message board about weight getting in the way and I was so moved by your situation, that I just wanted to come by and say hello and offer support. Even though you are far away, the internet is really such a wonderful thing and the SP web site and SparkFriends are all at your fingertips. I know it isn't the same as having them nearby, but it isn't nothing either. I wish you the best in your journey and for you to remember that even though you are far away, you are not alone!!
