Hi everyone! My name is Kim. I am blessed by God with a husband who loves me unconditionally and a 10 and a half year old daughter. However I weigh 310 pounds which is limiting what I am able to do with my husband and daughter, which has to change, I need to get healthy.

We are blessed to live in the home I grew up in. We have several acres; a large yard, a pond out front, and lots of woods. No neighbors in sight, but my nephew has a home coming up the driveway from the main road that we can walk to in two minutes.

I am interested in chickens, canning, crocheting (I'm a beginner), and sewing. I want to raise or grow more of our food to be free from pesticides.

Member Since: 5/14/2011

My Goals:
To loose the extra poundage to be a HEALTHY MOM to my very active 10 year old daughter.

Eating sensibley.
Frsh fruits and Veggies
Cut back on the carbs and meat.

Personal Information:
Moun tain Top, PA is my hometown and I am blessed to live in the home I grew up in. I have a fantastic husband who loves me unconditionall and a daughter who I thank God for everyday.

I am an iconographer. I write (paint) icons in the Byzantine Russian, and Greek style. I am starting to study Coptic icons. I also give workshop retreats where participants write (paint) thier own icons.

I also drive a school bus part time for our local district and I school my daughter at home.

I love British Comedies
Movies from the 30's, 40's, and some 50's.

Myrna Loy, Claudette Colbert, Cary Grant, Robert Mitchum, Greer Garson, Doris Day, Jimmy get the idea.

    I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and post, and log your water, and write on someone’s page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, and we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
    WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TRACKERS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me learn about the site, gain momentum and meet new friends.

    Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Oh, yeah, WRITE A BLOG, and keep them coming! It’s the catchy title that brings folks to your page and you'll meet new friends even faster!

    Stick around and come back every day! I was here, and left, and came back when I got serious, and I'm so glad I did. Don't procrastinate like I did, dig in now while you're here!

    Coming here every day adds a great level of support and accountability. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help (meaning: post on the OTHER person’s page, not on your own). We're all in this together! Stop by at my page and introduce yourself around to some of my friends too! You'll be glad you did!

    Doing it together, success is inevitable!
