My name is Dianna. I have been off Spark People for a while and decided it was time to start investing in myself again. The last few years have been an emotional roller coaster with everything from losing several people and pets that I love, to kids going off to college and impending career changes. During this time some of the weight that I lost found me again and my exercise and diet plan went out the door.

Many challenges lay ahead of me in processing and dealing with all these changes, the first of which is starting again on my diet and weight loss journey. SP has been a great place to gain information, share my thoughts and find support. So now itís time to put in the hard work and effort that it will take to reach my goals and hopefully along the way Iíll make new friends and find myself again, or maybe recreate myself. My hope is if any part of my journey resonates with you, we can find support in each other.
