Determined to Succeed!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 to give my body a break. Unfortunately I let the stress/emotional eating get to me and I gained about 60 back. My own fault. I just can't allow carbs and sugars without much planning.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. I am now on my own and using the extra % for monthly massages. I missed those!

As of July 31, 2015 I am back on Shape and working with the Nutritionist. I am not going to fall back into those bad habits this time. I learned a lot about myself in the past 10 months.

I have barely even been on spark to know that you went to Sonic. Sonic is my 'go to' place when I am feeling homesick for my mom and New Mexico. Its right down the street from both my office and church from opposite directions. There is no way to eat healthy there. Mom took us on special occasions when I was growing up. Of course back then it was only located in NM. No worries...I'm very god at my own sabotaging. Ha!
