Update 3/3/11
Since I joined SP what feels like a lifetime ago I have changed pretty significantly. I have learned patience, perseverance, tolerance and humility. I have learned that I am stronger and more powerful than I ever could have imagined and that I can accomplish anything. I have learned that failure only happens if you allow it to happen. Your life is what you make it and being healthy is a choice you make everyday. I choose me.

June 2010
Living and working in Boston and looking to lose weight and get in shape for our wedding, future children and to feel better physically and emotionally.
I started out at 340 ish but I honestly do not even know what the highest number was. I was so miserable. I felt like I could barely move and I decided after leaving a job I was not happy with in early 2009 it was time to focus on myself. I made simple changes like iced coffee with skim milk in place of mocha lattes, and completely cutting soda out of my life, I was able to drop around 40 lb. Over the last 6 months I was able to maintain my weight loss but needed to readjust my eating and exercising habits. With the help of spark I am once again headed on the path of better health!
After just a few short weeks on spark I am happy to say this is a new way of life for me. The support I receive here is an integral part of my weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey.

Yoga 1+x per week
