My Own Time, My Own Pace

Hi there! My name is Ashley. I became a Spark member about 5 years ago.....for the first time. I joined clubs, wrote blogs, became a leader of more clubs, made friends, logged food, created recipes; the whole bit. I became OBSESSED with Spark and forgot about what was really important. ME!!! My workouts started becoming fewer and further between, not to mention not nearly as intense as I'd like them to be. I was stuck in a rut. I didn't like me.

Hi there! My name is Ashley. I became a Spark member about 5 years ago.....for the first time. I joined clubs, wrote blogs, became a leader of more clubs, made friends, logged food, created recipes; the whole bit. I became OBSESSED with Spark and forgot about what was really important. ME!!! My workouts started becoming fewer and further between, not to mention not nearly as intense as I'd like them to be. I was stuck in a rut. I didn't like me. I was in a horrible place in my life.....bad relationship, low self-esteem, jobless. But when I'd log onto Spark, everything was "okay". I was a leader. No one knew about my problems. But I knew. Spark became an escape for me. I was using it, but not the way I should have been.
Since then, I've got myself together. I just got married this past August, to a man that tells me I'm beautiful every single day. He loves my curves and my "extra padding", and he's made me see that no matter what size I am, I can be pretty. He's done so much for my self-esteem and self-confidence. Now I know that I'm here for the right reasons, and I fully intend on doing it the Spark way, but in my own time and at my own pace. I know now that speed doesn't always equal success. The turtle DID beat the hare after all!

emoticon Welcome back to Spark. You have taken the first step on your journey by returning!
I've been a member a little more than two years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained 30 back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!
Sheila
