Hello fellow Sparkers. I hope you are doing well on your lifestyle change. I am here to join you once again to get my body to a more healthy state. I'm tired, and don't feel like moving most of the time, and hungry all the time. When I do move, my joints or my back aches. My favorite place to be is on my couch and it is becoming more and more difficult to get up off of it. I know that this is my downfall as I have already started having lifestyle related health problems. I work as a nurse and teach others why they shouldn't do what I am doing. I am very unhappy with my hypocrisy and want to change. Today I am on Sparkpeople and figuring out how to make that change. I hope with all my heart that I can do what needs to be done and am relieved to know that other Sparkers will be there for me and also hope that I can be there for you.

My husband and I live in a house on stilts across the street from an awesome view of the water. I love to watch movies, read, go exploring on the boat, fishing and go to local events for fun. I also love learning new things about health and diseases and teaching them to my patients.


Other Information:
My husband and I had a favorite saying once, "Dance as if no one is wathcing" There is more to the saying, but this is the part we liked best.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

    I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am......Let's Ride !! emoticon emoticon
