It's time to finally lose this excess weight and get fit and healthy. I have spent most of my 50 years struggling with my weight and losing the battle most of the time. My husband and I have been happily married for 17 years and have done a lot together....including adding on the pounds.

We moved to a new city a year and a half ago and with all the changes and all the dining out that we've done, I lost sight of my spark. But it's time to get back on track! I know that small steps can equal big results over time and that's what I want. I know this is a journey.

I love all the motivational helps through SparkPeople and love encouraging others on their journey! Together we can inspire each other onto our goals!

My Program:
Although I joined SparkPeople a few years ago, my official start day actively using it was June 2, 2014. And my recommitment date was September 5, 2016.

I am using the SparkPeople nutritional tracker and focusing on staying within not only my calories, but also my carbs, fats and proteins. I am eating more natural, quality food that my body craves. I also use my Fitbit One to track my steps throughout the day.

Personal Information:
I am from northern Indiana and now live in Indianapolis. I am married to a wonderful man. We were never able to have kids, but we have two dogs that keep us entertained.

Other Information:
One of my favorite weight loss quotes is:

Do Not Reward Yourself with Food
You are Not a Dog!
