The last time I updated this it was December 2009!!!!
Fast forward...its now Valentines day 2011.
Still the same as I was. Its amazing how much you stay the same when you do nothing.

So here it is.
I have an eating plan--professionally designed.
I have a goal--compete in a triathlon in May.

I'm going to succeed.
'nuff said.

Personal Information:
I am almost 35. I live in Citrus Heights, a suburb city near Sacramento, California. I work at the Sacramento Zoo with reptiles and amphibians. I am married to a wonderful man who is fairly supportive of my weightloss journey--he's happy with me as I am. (I told you he was wonderful!) I am also at Cal State, Sacramento University, majoring in Anthropology.--It only took 16 years to get there! Oh well, better late than never!

Other Information:
I used to do Shotokan Karate, but the class was disbanded, so I am going to try to get back into martial arts when I have the money. I love to read fantasy fiction novels, everything from Dragonlance to Celtic historical fiction (esp. Morgan Llewen). I also love to read books involving animals--current favorite--The lizard King, by Bryan Christy. I am also a hockey fanatic--following 4 NHL teams, and the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL.

SACRAMENTO SPARKLES hosted a meet up last night and we intend to have a MONTHLY MEET UP.. right now 'tentatively set' for the last monday of the month. We want to let you know that you are welcome to come. I hope that you will find time to stop in sometime.

    Big hugs

    Did you know when you have such a dark background it is hard to read black letters for us older people who have a hard time reading. But I brightened the page and Now it is easier.
    So wonderful to have your spirit here waking up the backwater that is the team. I am still loosing weight but slowly . I am still giving away goodies for the new people on the team. ]
