Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

Member Since: 3/20/2008

Fitness Minutes: 93,497

My Goals:
5% Challenge: Make the 5% mark during the fall challenge!

My Program:
Fitness at home. (Body weight strength/core. Wii Fit. Cardio.... still working on this due to knee injury.)

Nutrition: Working towards "clean" eating the majority of the time. Current nutritional change that is needed is: *Dr. Pepper has to go!

*build some "me time" into things (reading, cross-stitch, an evening out...)

*personal bible study time

Personal Information:
A 58 year old stay-at-home mom to two teenagers (Daughter is 17 and son is 15) and have been married to my hubby for 37 years as of 10/9/19. My son has autism so I spend lots of time advocating for him with teachers at school. My daughter is attending Cosmetology school and will graduate the end of February 2020. She will be 18 about the same time.
She's Changes! I am no longer homeschooling my son as he wants to go to high school. That is complicated by his autism so I know I'll be spending time with the special needs staff. Daughter is a high school graduate and working 20-30/hours a week.

I also work from home part-time as a Support Broker. This means I support families with their documentation and budget monitoring for the funds qualified for through Health & Welfare to assist their special needs.

I am a Wellness Advocate for doTerra Essential Oils. I am a casual sharer...not currently out there pushing the business side!

    Janet, thank you so much for the Holiday cheer and goodie. I'm really glad you've enjoyed the challenge and again, I'm glad to have gotten to know you better. It's thanks enough just to see you and the other mommies actively working together on the team to achieve your goals.

    Hi Janet! I'm glad you liked all the secret spark goodies! How fun that you were doing the same thing with your secret santa person too! It's always great making a new friend here.... our Christmas has been wonderful. It's been a hard year for weight loss, but here's hoping 2009 is more successful than ever!
