My Journey


I had joined Spark a long while back (in early 2006), but I was never able to stick with it.


August 2010 - I went to my doctor for my annual physical. When I saw the number on the scale I knew I had to do something.

I began by watching what I ate and getting moving. Slowly the scale moved in the right direction.



Mid-2011 - I lost my way, when I lost my job of 9 years. It took 1.5 years for me to find myself again and I had gained back most of what I had lost.



January 2013 - I was having severe stomach issues. I saw my doctor, who put my on Prilosec. I realized I needed a new approach.


February 2013 - Changed to a paleo eating lifestyle. I'm not perfect, but I do the best I can.


June 2013 - My Paleo lifestyle is going very well. See above for my progress so far.


June 9, 2013 - Enrolled in an online college!


August 2013 - Doctor is very pleased with my progress!


February 2014 - My cholesterol is slightly high (I blame all the carbs I was eating); my doctor wants me to eat low carb, high protein. So I'm going back to paleo basics!


May 2014 - Began my Associate of Science in Early Childhood Education!!



September 2014 - It was a long and tough summer, and I slid backward in my weight loss.. But I'm moving forward from here!


December 2014 - Jumping back in! I've regained quite a bit, but no guilt. Just pick up and go from here.



I have had setbacks and I'm sure I will again; but I just pick myself back up and keep on going. :)



Adding some rewards for hitting goals. Still need a few ideas. Suggestions appreciated!
