My newest headshot for work. Amazing how much happier I look right?





Senior Year of College January 2011. Scary thing is I thought this was a great pic of myself.





I'm so happy that I'm getting healthy for the rest of my life with this man.

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jan-Marie. My weight has always been an issue for me. I'm hoping to stay motivated by being actively involved in the Spark community. Knowing that people are willing to support me having never met me before is a really great feeling. Thanks in advance for your support.

My ultimate goal was originally 145, but I've decided 155 is more realistic, achievable, and maintainable for me.

I want to be happy and healthy and feel good about my body and myself.

I'm newly engaged (4-12-13) and I definitely know I don't want to have to buy a plus size wedding dress.

Use the nutrition tracker every day.

Do cardio 3-4 times a week.

I'm a 24 year old grad recent college grad with a Master's in Educational Research and Evaluation. I'm from Ohio but I am a Bobcat NOT a Buckeye.

You're such an inspiration! Please keep up the wonderful things you're doing. For yourself!

Do you still use your Spark Activity Tracker? I've read good and bad about them and am curious if you still use it, still like it, etc.
