Forget about yesterday...
Do not worry about tomorrow...
Just make healthy choices TODAY.

This journey is about PERSISTENCE and PROGRESS, NOT perfection.

Update: Some of the weight crept back on so I'm working to shed those extra pounds and regain my fitness.

Hello, Sparkers! Thank you so much for visiting my Spark page! I'm Jennifer, a 46-year-old married Texan with two children and two grown step-children. My son is 6 and my daughter is 20.

I joined SP on January 1, 2011, and it has been such a wonderful experience so far. I simply LOVE this site! It is filled with wonderful, supportive people and lots of great information, resources and tools. And most of all, I love the support of my Spark friends.

My long-term goal was to lose 100 pounds so I can really enjoy my life with my husband and kids. And an unexpected turn on my journey--I became a runner and love running races! I have run multiple 5K races, a 10K, and finished my first half-marathon at the end of January 2012.

GOAL ACHIEVED! 100 pounds gone FOREVER!
