Action hero makes a comeback!

In 2006, I lost 50 lbs. I was an action hero--hiking, running, biking, weight-lifting--I loved it all. Fitness was my top-priority. In the past 7 years, we moved to Australia, my dad died, I had 3 surgeries, and we have a toddler and a newborn. Fitness just hasn't been a priority. After my first pregnancy I regained 35 lbs.

I want to regain my enthusiasm and my active life-style. I lost the weight initially because I could make losing weight my major focus.This time, I need to find a balance that builds fitness into my life (without taking it over).

I go back to work in 6 weeks, I just want to lose 3 kg to get started.

Welcome to Sparkies Down Under!

We are a vibrant team and love to exercise and learn how to nourish our bodies.

This will be the first day of the rest of your life.
So please introduce yourself to the team in our forum, and check out the challenges.

Our challenges are designed to help you to track your exercise and to learn how to nourish your body.
Portion control is most important, we need to realise that weighting and measuring your food is the key to loosing weight and keeping it off.

We have a huge support system,and several team leaders ..
We are here to help, advise and encourage you to be the very best you can be..

This is not a diet we are on, it is a way of life.

I can understand that you will find it hard at first,but as you continue your journey with us,you will realise just how simple and easy it is to adapt.
Once again, Welcome and enjoy your journey with us to fitness and health.

Susie.
