Hi! My name is Donde. I reached my 8th year anniversary with Spark People on January 19th 2018 ! It has been an incredible journey! I would like to say that maintenance has been an easy thing, but there has been a lot of twists and turns a long the way! If it wasn't for this wonderful website, I don't think I would have come out of my discouragement about my weight and being healthy! I lost my Father 22 years ago this last Father's Day to a heart attack! He had issues with high cholesterol due to bad eating habits as he grew up. He was not only my Father, but my best friend! When I lost him, a part of me died inside! I think that part had been gone for a long time! Then came my wonderful husband Todd who lifted me up, believed in me no matter what my past faults were and continues to love me today! My son Joshua who God has blessed me with for a short time on this earth! I will continue to run for a great prize because God gave me this one body, and he wants us to take care of it so that we can take care of others! Thanks so much Spark People for everything and to all of my incredible friends on here who keep me accountable and lift me up when I need encouragement! Amen!

My Goals:
I would like to say that I have kept the weight off over the last year, but the truth is, I got lazy and started to think I was untouchable when it comes to weight gain! My goal is to get back on track in 2018 by eating smarter and getting my weight back down to 136 where it should be! So far into the new year I have been doing a great job with eating better! I had gotten back up to 157 lbs and I knew I was going to gain all the weight back but since around November of 2017, I have been eating so much better and exercising and this time I have continued on into the new year! I wanna feel better all the time and have that energy for others!

My Program:
I recently saw this website for Active Burn ! It has so many great workouts especially if your looking to take it to the next level! Also, when you sign up you can get a personal couch to help you with your goals! She has been great! My hope is that ramping up my workouts and continuing to eat healthy will help me get back to my healthy weight!

Personal Information:
I am from Illinois. I am 47 years old and I have a 18 year old son! He will be graduating from High school this May! Where does the time go! I think the stress of him going off to college has really gotten to me. Also, we have had some personal issues of our own here at home with my Son that we have been dealing with. I am so thankful for my family and my three wonderful Grandchildren Kellan, Grayden and Cecillia! Also, I have had lots of support from my husband and we are getting through this together! Last but not least I will never loose my faith in my heavenly Father who created me and made me into the loving person I am today! Thank you God!

Other Information:
I just believe that if you have a strong enough faith in God, you can accomplish anything!
