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 stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

    ""To be Beautiful is the birthright of every woman""
    ""Being Beautiful doesn't make you happy. Being happy makes you Beautiful.""

    ""Being Beautiful isn't about having a pretty face.
    It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, but most importantly, a Beautiful soul.""

    ""There's a difference between pretty and Beautiful.
    When someone is pretty, they have a good appearance.
    But when someone is Beautiful, they shine on the inside and out.""

    "If you are beautiful on the inside, you are Beautiful on the outside.
    Don't be afraid to be your self, because that is the true Beauty.""
    ""If you are confident, you are Beautiful""

    ""You know what's Beautiful? Read the first word again""

    ~*~ emoticon ~*~ emoticon ~*~RULES OF CHOCOLATE~*~ emoticon ~*~ emoticon ~*~
    1. If you've got chocolate on your hands, you're eating it much too slow.
    2. Chocolate raisins, cherries, and strawberries count as fruit.
    3. Eat a chocolate bar before a meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    4. Money talks. Chocolate sing
    5. Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look young.
    6. Eat equal amount of white and dark chocolate...
    they'll contradict each other for a balanced diet.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    7. There's no Chocolate Anonymous. No one wants to quit.
    8. If you can't get 2 lbs. of chocolate home in a hot car, eat it in the parking lot.
    9. Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your daily things to do list.
    That way, you get one thing done.
