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!!!

    Cheering you on for a great Friday ahead... emoticon

    Thanks again for all your support on my blogs!

    Hope you enjoy the following Poem. "I Asked the Lord to Bless You"

    I asked the Lord to bless you
    As I prayed for you today
    to guide you and protect you
    as you go along the way...

    His love is always with you
    His promises are true
    and when we give him all of our cares
    you know He will see us through

    So when the road you are traveling on
    seems difficult at best
    just remember I am here praying
    and God will do the rest.
