I have seen many stories of inspiration and success and I wanted to take a few minutes to share mine with those who are unfamiliar with me and have not heard what has been going on with me since I joined Sparkpeople.
I joined Sparkpeople late in the year in 2002. My marriage had come to and end. I had to move back home for a while. I had no job. I was having major health issues and I was still way over weight even though I had lost some since last January.
I started tracking each and everyone of my goals on a daily basis. I track everything I ate and also all of my excercising. I forgot I was even thinking about leaving it all and moving out of state. Then things turned around for me with the help of Sparkpeople, the good Lord and lots of will power and faith in my self.
I now am enployed by my church. With a wonderful job. I have reached my goal in weight loss. I even have toned up and put on some muscle where I have never seen it before. I have been on a work and witness trip to Mexico which was life changing for me and I have met a wonderful young lady at church that supports all that I do. I am part of the choir and a men's quartet. And for some reason I still manage to find a little spare time for myself. My life has changed just as a fairy tale would and I owe it all to my faith, confidence, stubborness in succeeding, all of you here, and my Savior. I also hope that many of you will also have success stories as I do.
