My name is Gwen and I've been a Sparker since 2007. It's only been in the more recent years that I've taken advantage of all the benefits offered by Spark People.

I have been on some sort of diet/eating plan since I was 13 years old. You'd think by now I'd have it figured out. I know what to do....just gotta do it. A few years ago, I ALMOST reached goal and became complacent. Don't let this happen to you! I met my goal during the 5% Spring Challenge although through unconventional means. This challenge I plan to continue weight loss but at the very least to maintain gains made during last challenge.

My Goals:
Goals & Commitments Are As Follows:

1. Make exercise a part of my life EVERY DAY with NO EXCUSES!!
2. Log in daily for 1 year

5. Reach 5% goal by end of challenge

Personal Information:
I have been married to my Jerry, my husband of 31 years and have 3 biological children (2 sons and 1 daughter). I also have 2 stepdaughters, one of which has 3 children. My middle son has 3 year old daughter and a 19 month old son who have stolen my heart. So 5 kids and 5 grands in total.I just have to figure out a way to see them more often as work schedules (mine and theirs) don't line up enough. We will be official empty nesters when our youngest son graduates from college in December. I am a drug dealer (legal as a pharmacist) and as a manager have long hours on the days I work. Having said that, getting in the exercise is sometimes a problem but I know where there is a will there is a way.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, Soduku, hiking, biking and Zumba.

    Hi Gwen! Thanks for stopping by my page! As of today I'm only ten pounds from my goal! Woohoo!!!!
    Actually having my own business has allowed me more time to do things with my kids and my family...which was one of the reasons I started it! Much more flexibility! I work my business around my family and not my family around my business!
    Wishing you much success!
