I am hoping to get to know other Sparkpeople, get motivated, and to meet my goals!


"Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; They too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; It is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; Many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the council of the years, Gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a healthy discipline, Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here, and whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, Whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and spirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."

My Goals:
My goals are to continue to lose weight while learning to keep off the weight. My original goal was to lower my blood pressure and become more active to help lose the weight. I know that the weight didn't get there overnight so it will take a while to lose it.

Think fresh, unprocessed, and green!

My Program:
Joined Sparkpeople as of August 2007, I had been doing the South Beach Diet for several month and switched to the Atkins Diet Plan to make it a Lifestyle not a diet. Currently, I have been an active member of SparkPeople since 2007, using the tools and community here almost daily to help me achieve and maintain my weight loss goals. I am committed to staying healthy.

March 2008 - 30 lbs lost all total with Atkins/South Beach

Personal Information:
Mom to two grown kids and two fur kids; One lovely Granddaughter and two Granddogs!

Other Information:
Here is a list of corn sweetners and products that are found when reading labels:

Dextrose, Glucose, Maltose, Maltodextrin, Polyols, Sorbitol and of course HCFS.

Watch out folks as this is BAD stuff!

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
