Still trying to lose. I got big due to a combination of medical issues, treatment from one of those issues, lack of self control and poor choices. I love green. I like to loom knit, Tunisian crochet, watch an ungodly amount of TV and coloring. I don't eat red meat, pork, or shellfish. I'm mostly vegetarian but I do eat chicken/turkey, tuna, or salmon now and then, but not at every meal. So, apparently that makes me a flexitarian. 7/21/16 I'm going to stop using Spark People. It's a great program, but I was diagnosed 6/15/16 with diabetes and need an app that lets me track my intake by time and also tracks my blood sugars all in the same place. I've switched to MyNetDiary's diabetes tracker app since it does everything I need AND syncs with my iPhone Health App. If my SparkPeople App could sync with either one of those apps, I'd continue using this for other purposes maybe, but I don't like entering things twice.

My Goals:
Lose at least 50 pounds this year.

Firm up my belly, butt, and arms.

Inspire my husband to lose weight too.

My Program:

Personal Information:

3 kids, 7 year old twins and a 4 year old.

I love green!

I am a Medical Receptionist and for fun I'm a Romance Enrichment Consultant ("I do naughty parties")

Other Information:
I'm a reformed starchitarian. I used to think I was a vegetarian but vegetarians eat veggies, I used to only eat pasta and candy. (Somehow I was thin back then, I have no idea how I did it!) Those days are long gone though. I have learned my lesson.

I'm not a vegetarian anymore, I eat chicken, turkey, salmon and sometimes tuna.

I don't eat shellfish, four-legged animals etc. It has nothing to do with how I feel about animals, it's how I feel about those meats. For all of the meats I don't eat I can give you a specific reason as to why I don't like that one.

I can't even deal with all forms of chicken/turkey, fish. If it has skin, dark meat, is on the bone, I see a vein, I can't eat it. I've tried, in this case of mind vs. matter, the matter wins!
