Wow! I've been with SPARKPEOPLE and you wonderful people for over 3 years now!...I lost 25 or so lbs. and learned so much about myself. I learned that I can have a lot more control over my choices than I thought I had. I began making better choices over what I ate.
Then my world was shot to pieces on Feb. 6,2010. I had a massive heart attack,died and was brought back . Now I am in end-stage renal desease and spend 3 days a week on kidney dialysis. This will be my life until God takes me home. I've put myself completely in His hands!
My weight is tightly watched so I will know if I'm gaining too much water weight! So far,so good!
I miss you guys,so will be popping in to say 'hello' and see how you are doing!
Take care and I thank you for all the prayers,Mona
I'll post some different photos soon!

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight in order to enjoy my Senior years more fully.It is so wonderful to finally have lots of free time! The way I am now,it is a big effort just to go on a short walk with my husband!
As of Jan. 1,2009,I have lost 20 lbs. By tracking my food and walking daily on my treadmill,I hope to lose another 20-30 lbs.in 2009!

My Program:
My program is tracking my food,keeping with-in my calorie limit,drinking 8-10 cups of water each day and walking,walking,and more walking!

Personal Information:
My name is Mona[with a short o] I am 6

Other Information:
I like to consider my self artistic. I design and make quilts and beaded jewelry. I love to read,mostly mysteries and biographys. I guess I'm what is called "high-strung". This is the excuse I use to explain my eating before bed .It calms me down. Who am I fooling? Ha Ha!
