Sometimes it is difficult to come up with a user name - so I just chose two things I love - quilts and puppies! In a world with many beautiful things, these are two of my very favorites. My real name is Mary; I love life and living and I hate fat, especially when it sits on my own body! Ugh! So, I'm here to do something about that! I will be blessed by the journey when I am traveling with others who share a healthy goal for themselves by reducing fat in their own bodies and increasing our longevity through better health. Many Blessings!

My Program:
7/20/2012 - Today was as wonderful as yesterday was rough. My attitude has been so much better and my food is on target. Many mini-goals of a personal nature were accomplished, and as I close out this day, I can say, it has been a GREAT day! Thank You, Jesus, for the Blessings of today.

7/19/2012 - Been a rough day with food, and personal genetic history. Heavens! To discover at my age that I am not quite who I thought I was has come as a bit of a shock. Yet I am still me, and today, I am forging ahead to be the best me I can be!

Studying my personal needs and aiming to implement those needs to doable goals; low-fat and low-calories due to extremely slow metabolism.

7/18/2012 - First Day Down - My Calories were higher than they should have been; but fat, carbs and protein were all in line with my goals. I know what I need to do to get those calories down...or more appropriately, what NOT to do!

Personal Information:
My name is Mary. I live in DeLand, Florida.

Other Information:
I am a book author, a pastor, wife, mother. I love quilting and puppies (all dogs). I love time-travel romance movies and books.

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
