Hi, my name is Bonnie. This is my third time to join Spark People and I have been on here this time since May of 2014. This is definitely a lifestyle change, I truly can't even imagine going back to the way it was for me before.

If you would like to read my Wordpress blog, on which I have tips and information about losing weight and how I've done it, please copy and paste this link:

A little about me: I am (soon-to-be) 28 years old and just moved from Indiana back to my homestate of California in September 2016. I was babysitting my two young nephews full-time for a few years before the move and now it is time for me to build a life for myself. I am dealing with a bit of regain due to all the moving and craziness that occurred in the past five months, I gained 50 pounds back and my weigh-in on 9/26 was 233.4. So I am working on getting the weight back off and taking it one day at a time.

My exercise plan: I do Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds DVDs, walking videos from on demand, and either Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD or kickboxing workouts. In addition to walking outside, I also do my best training for races. In May 2016 I did the Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland and it was so exhilarating to finish! I will be doing it again this next year so I am preparing for that but hoping to be doing some 5K and 10K's in the meantime.
MY 2016-2017 RACES:

    Be humble enough to accept that no matter what heights you may rise to, there will always (be) something new to learn and someone greater than yourself there to teach you, if you’re willing to listen. Austin Muhs

    If you don’t get it, you can’t change it. If you don’t acknowledge it, you can’t fix it. If you don’t own it, you can’t improve it. Stephanie Staples
