Fit for Life

I am Grateful for a full, rich and Blessed life!

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister’s suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became ‘serious’ two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT ...
I am Grateful for a full, rich and Blessed life!

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister’s suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became ‘serious’ two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT having to try on bathing suits…)

I continued to lose weight, partially because I couldn’t figure how to reset the nutrition tracker, partly because I increased my exercise and partly because I was not yet comfortable with my body. I lost 10 more pounds over the next 3 months, for a total of 35 pounds and settled into my ‘home shape.’

I celebrated a year anniversary of my before picture 5/24/10. Since that time I’ve fluctuated a few pounds and maintained a healthy BMI of 19-20.

I’ve found great friends with amazing stories, drive, determination and accomplishments on this site, and am honored to share in their victories and setbacks however small or large.

My goal is to be “Fit for Life”, so while I remain committed to healthy eating and exercise, I’ve expanded my horizons to include meditation. I am thoroughly enjoying my new journey, my new friends and my new adventure into blogging.

I hope all who visit my spark page, will find this site as rewarding as I have.

Update 01.30.12: I am starting on a new fat loss and muscle gain journey and shedding 10 'holiday' pounds.

Update 03.20.12: I am ThanksGiving for the miracles in my life as I continue on my healthy journey.

Update 07.03,14: Getting the Spark back - 5 more pounds and much muscle to go...

Thanks for your comment on my self-medication blog! I totally agree that self-medicating with "healthy food" improves mood . . . but it's still counter-intuitive to reach for the carrots instead of the French fries. Last weekend after my gym workout and hungry at the mall, I was sorely tempted to buy just a small New York fries (Canadian chain, superb . . . ): and went home to my Moroccan lentil soup instead. Yup, I felt good . . . but only experienced after the fact!!
