Hi! My name is Moni and welcome to my SparkPage!!! After my second son was born, my weight was out of control. One day reading an article in a Woman's magazine there was a write-up on SparkPeople. I logged on but did not really work the program. Well one day I was fed up with being fed-up and started working the program. My heaviest weight was well over 275 lbs. At first I would drink water. Then I worked on eating fruits and veggies. I would do 10 mins of exercise daily and now I am up to 60 mins. plus of activity. I also sign up for 5K races during the season!!! From a Couch Potato to Walk/Jogging 5Ks!!! I know I still have more work to do but I love the way I feel!! I love that I have energy and I love that I have a smile on my face from ear to ear. If I can do it - so can you. I am working on the new me one baby step at a time. So join me on this awesome journey. You won't regret it!! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Moni :-)

    It's Friday, and time for some laughs. Lately, the Friday Just for Giggles have become quite a big dill around here, but I doughnut want to taco 'bout it. However, I yam relishing the positive feedback, and I'd give a penne for your thoughts. . .

    I hope you find these puns quite a-peeling because they are all "injest".

    I've started investing in stocks: beef, chicken, and vegetable.
    One day I hope to become a builloinaire.

    I'd love to be shipwrecked on a dessert island.

    Heinz recently improved the taste of its tomato sauce.
    The rest of the food manufacturers were left to ketchup.

    I knock on the door of the refrigerator before I open it; just in case the salad's dressing.

    I was going to share another vegetable pun, but it was too corny.

    And last, but not yeast . . .

    Green vegetables give me gas. We're talkin' kale force winds.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
