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 :-)

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

    Challenge yourself to be who you know you are capable of being.
    Challenge yourself to follow through
    To live what you preach to walk your walk.

    Don't worry about how slowly you feel you're heading toward your goals,
    or how many roadblocks you find, or how many detours you are forced to take.
    As long as you keep doing your thing,
    you're still cruising far ahead of everyone who's too scared to even try.

    Oh Moni!! I AM SO GOLLY PROUD OF YOU GAL!! WOW!! Four 5Ks!!! YOU GO KIDDO!! Really gooooooo awayyyy from the kennnellllll. It's SUMMAH BREAK!!! Remember when years ago in the SUmmah break you and I and others ESCAPED The kennel for a trip to England? Hmmmm the crown jewels!! Etc!!

    Things had gone quite wrong,, car, illnesses, and I said "OH I NEED A BREAK!"

    I got one!!

    A week ago Saturday I BROKE MY FOOT!!

    Oopps need to be careful how I word things huh?

    It's still quite painful, but it'll heal. In the meantime I get to do some more art stuff that I wasn't making the time for. Its just how we look at things.

    Glad that Justin is enjoying college, is it easier on you now? ANd that Danny is working FT!! That's sooo good. Oh, no doubt work is CRAZY for you!!

    I dropped a client, but, I still have 4 so that's all good and well!! I did miss a few days of work with my foot, because work wanted a Dr's note that I am okay to work. I don't do anything physical so it was approved, and as we know I am sooo ANTI Medication,,,, that I did agree to a few pain pills but I hated the way they made me feel. GOOD OLE ICE works and tylenol.
