HI! Welcome to my page.

Spring is here! YEAH! I love the sunshine and the longer days of daylight

I live in Scranton, PA with one dog, two cats and I see Anna (my step-daughter) on the weekends. I loving trying new things and having new experiences. I like to mix up my workout routine so I don't get bored. I like to do Walk Away the Pounds, Refit, Yoga and any other exercise video I can find. Outside I will be working on the yard and getting the garden ready for planting.

I love being part of a group challenge, meeting new people and trying new things. I think being part of a group makes weight loss so much easier.

My boyfriend, Herb, passed away on February 12, 2021. We were together 10 years and my heart is broken. Everything in my life is now different - I do not like it but - I am moving forward and doing the best I can. One day at a time.

I have been with sparkspeople for a long time but have had some set backs and I was on and off the wagon many times. Starting in January 2017 I have stayed with it and have not given up.

I re-learned how to exercise, eat right and most importantly stay in contact with my groups for support. Although my eating habits have a tendency to get out of hand (especially when I am stressed) - I try hard every day to make the right decisions (some days I fail but most days I succeed) - I love to eat and I have a big sweet tooth!

I am so thankful for all my friends here on SparksPeople - they are so motivational and help me stay on track. And are always there to get me back on track after a stressful day.

I have also found it very helpful to blog and I do not get blogs posted as often as I would like but when I get them posted I love to hear the feedback from everyone. Take a look at some of my blogs and leave me a message!!

The beginning of 2019 I was 220 lbs and in August 2020 was 246 lbs. Currently today (March 23, 2021) I am 241 lbs. This is evidence that even though I had a big weight gain - I am currently heading in the right direction.... I will continue to move forward.

I am actually happy in my body. I do not look in the mirror and cringe, but I know the weight is not a healthy weight for me. I am still working hard and dealing with stress the best I can and I know I will reach my goals.

In July 2020 I was diagnosed with high blood pressure (a family curse), I stated medication and it is currently under control. Then in August 2020 was diagnosed with pre-diabetic, again on medicine and it is under control.

My motto is: Never Give Up!
