"Be not afraid of going slowly. Be afraid of standing still." - Japanese Proverb (Thanks DENISE824 for providing that quote on someone else's spark page!)

I used to be thin in highschool, gained and lost. I do remember a 27 inch waist. Now I've doubled that. It's time I lost the weight but more for being healthy than how thin can I be.

Update Jan 2009: I'm still here after a year or two and haven't lost a thing. But I keep hoping. At least I haven't given that up! It's unfortunate I don't have a lot of time to spend on spark as I am a new homeowner and a school teacher. I don't have the patience either waiting for pages to load in either. I had joined many other sparkteams too but decided to give those up. Making changes!!!

Fitness Minutes: 7,989

My Goals:
Sure I have an ultimate goal but I refuse to think in that way as I want to ensure success. So... I'm doing mini-goals. My first mini-goal is for December.

Another goals include:
- drinking enough water
- exercising 4-5 times a week
- tracking my food

My Program:
I don't like to use just one program. All kinds of programs have +'s and -'s.

Here are programs and motivational people I like to try and incorporate in some fashion:

1. You On a Diet
2. Volumetrics
3. Bob Greene
4. Covert Bailey
5. Oprah
6. Susan Powter
7. Richad Simmons
8. Canada Food Guide
9. Canadian Calorie Counter Support Group
10. various

Personal Information:
I am a private person so I have no information to share at this time.

Other Information:
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanks Redportman for posting that!
