Hi! My name is Moni and welcome to my SparkPage!!! After my second son was born, my weight was out of control. One day reading an article in a Woman's magazine there was a write-up on SparkPeople. I logged on but did not really work the program. Well one day I was fed up with being fed-up and started working the program. My heaviest weight was well over 275 lbs. At first I would drink water. Then I worked on eating fruits and veggies. I would do 10 mins of exercise daily and now I am up to 60 mins. plus of activity. I also sign up for 5K races during the season!!! From a Couch Potato to Walk/Jogging 5Ks!!! I know I still have more work to do but I love the way I feel!! I love that I have energy and I love that I have a smile on my face from ear to ear. If I can do it - so can you. I am working on the new me one baby step at a time. So join me on this awesome journey. You won't regret it!! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Moni :-)

    Moni, a little slow in responding to comments on my "sunflower" blog...well, it wasn't about sunflowers, but I had a picture! LOL! Nice of you to stop by. I'm grateful for the venison our friends gave us. It's about 7-8 pkgs of ground meat. I'm not really overly crazy about it, but I usually mix it with some fatter ground beef to give it a little more flavor. Richard loves it, so no issues there. Our friend had been hunting and got a nice sized buck with a bow (guess it's bow hunting season right now) and they needed the space in their freezer. Lucky us!! Hugs, Jeannie

    Oh, Moni, hope you all got a good night's sleep! I certainly did better last night. Things are still too tenuous to make me feel any better just yet, but I'm calmer and a more "stable genius" today! LOL. Stay well...sorry to hear your son is sick. We've managed to stay well--crossing our fingers and doing everything we can to stay that way. Hugs, Jeannie
