Hi!! I'm Cindy. I have always struggled with my weight but was able to lose 72 pounds a few years ago by tracking here on Sparkpeople. I've gone through some major life changes that threw me waaay off track and now I've gained it all back...and am feeling it!! It's time to do it again!

Member Since: 5/16/2006

Fitness Minutes: 24,828

My Goals:
Lose a substantial amount of weight and live a much longer, healthier, more fulfilling life than I will if I remain in the condition I am in right now!!!

Wear clothes I have never been able to wear, and have my husband be proud that I am his wife (and my kids be proud that I am their mother as well).


My Program:
**Revised 9-30-09** OK, enough beginning! I am eating within my calorie range and working out at least 5 times a week (at least that's the plan).

Original Post - 2006 -
Just beginning again!!! I am trying to learn many things. One of them being the patience that I need to lose a LOT of weight. That has been really hard for me and made it really easy for me to give up each time. So small changes for now. Drinking enough water, cutting out the soda, tracking what I eat and drink, and reading success stories of others - trying to stay motivated.



Personal Information:
I am 5' 6.5" tall
I have 2 inside dogs, lots of cats - both inside and out, 4 goats, 1 horse, 3 bunnies and a few chickens.
I homeschool my 3 kids and we love it - most times :-)


Other Information:
I love to cook/bake, sing, garden, can, knit, read, ride horses, work outside on our farm and care for our animals...and the obvious-eat-although now I don't eat sugared-to-death foods and a minimal amount of processed foods and I snack on freggies and oh, what a difference it makes!!!

    I Said A Prayer For You Today

    I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word.
    I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind.
    I asked Him to send treasurers of a far more lasting kind.
    I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day.
    To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way.
    I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
    But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.
