Hi! My name is Donde. I reached my 6th year anniversary with Spark People on January 19th 2016 ! It has been an incredible journey! 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 16 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 2016 by eating smarter and getting my weight back down to 136 where it should be!

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 45 years old and I have a 16 year old son! God has been making some changing in my life. I have three wonderful Grandchildren, Grayden and Kellan and the newest addition to our family, our Grand Daughter Cecelia! I also became a Great Aunt two years ago when Sadey was born and when my Great Nephew Aiden was born! Last year, I became a Great Aunt again when my Niece Kathy had a little boy and they named him Bret! I have a wonderful Step-Daughter Brittany who has always been the Daughter I never had!

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

    Rewarding yourself with gifts emoticon along the way is great in theory but tough in practice—your schedule is already jam-packed! Make it more fun and realistic by getting your friends emoticon involved. "One of the best ideas I ever heard was from a SparkPeople.com member," Nichols says. "She gave several of her friends $20 each to buy her a surprise gift emoticon , wrap it and everything. Then for each 10 pounds she lost emoticon emoticon (you could determine the interval yourself), she would open one of the gifts emoticon purchased by her friends emoticon for a really fun and surprising reward along her journey."


    Let's not forget to REWARD OURSELVES!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
