Hello.....my name is Amy, I am 50 yrs old and continuing the quest for a healthy lifestyle. I am married to a wonderful and awesome man, we have 3 children and 1 granddaughter. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist, and I love my job. I am here to make the rest of my life the BEST of my life.

I have been with Spark since August 2009. All the weight lost so far has been within the last couple years......some before SPARK but with SPARK I have learned how to KEEP IT OFF!!! That has not happened with other past programs I have tried. This is the best I have ever felt, I feel I have control over my bad habits. I am learning so much on this site, it is unbelievable the amount of information and SUPPORT!!! I receive here. I look forward to logging on everyday,....this is an addition to my family.....this is my SPARK FAMILY!!!! Thank you.

My heaviest weight that I can remember was 262....so far in my journey i have lost 65lbs(it has happened within the last 2 yrs)......it is an unbelievable feeling. I am so close to my goal, I will not give up the fight. SP has really been the catalyst that has made me so successful.

I know that exercise is a vital part of my life, not just to get to my goal weight but a lifetime commitment!!! Also, having my hubby as my exercise partner and a member of SPARK is a big plus. Now, we have Spark friends that mall walk with us...that is a lot of fun that goes with a great workout too. We are planning future activities for our local Spark team!!! Being active is now a routine...not an exception.

UPDATE:
2013: I relocated my family from Massachusetts to West Virginia so I could become my dad's care giver after the unexpected death of my mom.

2013 is going to be a RESTART for me!! I am not going to let the health issues BEAT ME!
Gotta love it..........SPARK!!!

2012 has been a rough year. July I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer and had thyroidectomy. October I was diagnosed with lung cancer, had a wedge resection (part of my lung removed) and will be starting chemotherapy soon. The ironic part, is I am a NON-SMOKER, lol!! I will not let this defeat me.

2013 is going to be a RESTART for me!! I am not going to let the health issues BEAT ME!
Gotta love it..........SPARK!!!

UPDATE 2016
My father passed away February 2015.
My life turned upside down for a while. The last few years taught me what is important in life!!! Time with my family and my church is where I am devoted. Money is not everything.
