Spark has been a great resource for me as I try to lose weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle. I'm looking forward to meeting new folks and making new friends through the website.

Some of the things I enjoy include traveling, canoeing, walking, fishing, time with family and friends, reading. And... I can't forget to mention, I absolutely LOVE animals (except snakes).

If there's anything you want to know, just ask.

Fitness Minutes: 279

My Goals:
I started in April 2007 needing to lose 30 pounds. I reached my initial goal weight of 150 for a short time. I stayed pretty close to it consistently staying between 148 and 152.

Maintaining proved to be more challenging than the weight loss itself. I have creaped back up on the scale. I now need to lose 15 pounds to get back to the target weight of 150. So.... here I go again.

As of this month (November 2010), I am once again finding the motivation to do what I need to do in order to drop the weight again.

My Program:

Return to walking 3-4 times a week.

Joined a fitness center. I would also like to find a fitness buddy to help me stay motivated.

Increase intake of fruits and veggies.

Diet: I am using spark as a resource. I can't use the spark diet as a whole due to other health problems. However, I find that I am able to incorporate a lot from spark into my overall diet.

Personal Information:
I live in Manhattan Kansas. I have a wide range of interests.

I share my home with Gracie (cat) and Farkel (Cocker Spaniel).

    I'm SO excited (for you!) I have a diab. site that I go to the 1st of every month because they have a different downloadable book. They show the upcoming book for next month...you're NOT gonna believe this. Next month they're offering a Diabetic Cookbook for...1 or 2!!! The cookbook this month was 105 pages. Sometimes they offer reference books, or books on specific diabetic topics. You should take a gander when you have time, and download the cookbook for this month. "http://www.onetouchgold.com"
    It's a FREE site, but you will need to register with a username and password. It's actually a pretty cool site for diabetics! Welcome back. Talk to ya soon. To find the downloadable cookbook, click on "special offers". I have a direct link on a blog, but you might have to register first.

    All the pics are great, but if I had to pick a fav it would have to be the "Party Cat" The deer were not too shy, were they? The buck was probably more skiddish. Ain't nature grand?

    Are you ready to go back to work, lol?
