Hi fellow sparklers! I am 47 years old and live in Vermilion, Oh. I was recently given a treadmill and that inspired me to finally get serious about getting this weight off. I think this website is awesome and am looking forward to meeting lots of new friends!

Thanks for stopping by my page!

Time for an update. I have now been on Spark people for 9 months. I have lost 50 pounds so far! And I quit smoking 2 months ago. I am amazed at the progress I have made in such a short time. And I am inspired and motivated to continue on this life transformation until I reach the goals I have set and beyond. Who knows, maybe one day in the future I will be running a marathon or competing in a triathalon. Nothing is impossible if a person desires it.

I seem to be at a stall on the weight loss as of the past few weeks. Most would say I have hit a plateau, but I know that I have not kept to my plan nutrtionally and have consumed far too many calories on more than one occasion. But I am only human, and I have learned from these transgressions. So I am full force back at it and feeling strong. I am excited to no end for spring to arrive so that I may get back to biking and walking and other outdoor exercises that I so enjoyed.

My Goals:
To get in shape with healthy food choices and exercise

To quit smoking-DONE 11/2009

My Program:
Drinking lots of water

Using the treadmill regularly

Love doing Leslie Sansone videos and enjoy many various workouts using the free exercise tv channel.

Personal Information:
My name is Jeannie and I live in northwest Ohio. My boyfriend Jim and I live together with our very spoiled cat named Lucky. I work at a local food mart. Sometimes, being surrounded by so much food all the time can be challenging! I am very motivated now that I have found SP to finally get rid of this extra weight and get healthy!

Other Information:
We have a new addition to our family. Smokie is a large gray neutered male who "found me" one night at my place of employment. I brought him home-and he is now a member of the family. Unfortunatley, Lucky has not welcomed him with such open arms.

Don't let the light of your life be the light in the refrigerator!

    Thank you for your thoughtful words! Comments like yours are one of the many reasons that I love SP! We are on the same page with our weight loss goals. I am on a group called Done Being the Fat Girl.....haha! I highly recommend this group. They are very supportive! They are also doing a challenge which has its own Spark Team. Signing up for the Challenge ends tmrw! Maybe I'll see you there! :)
