Still Kickin'

It is hard for me to believe but it has been more than 6 years since I found SparkPeople. I have changed so much in that time that I am truly a different person. Six years ago I was almost 200 lbs and only 5'3" and could barely walk my dog around the block. Now I am in the 150's, regularly walk my dog a couple of miles, face down my elliptical on regular basis, and so much happier.

It is hard for me to believe but it has been more than 6 years since I found SparkPeople. I have changed so much in that time that I am truly a different person. Six years ago I was almost 200 lbs and only 5'3" and could barely walk my dog around the block. Now I am in the 150's, regularly walk my dog a couple of miles, face down my elliptical on regular basis, and so much happier. I have made some really awesome friends in that time that have helped every step of the way. I hasn't always been easy and I haven't always stuck to the plan. I have lost weight and gained weight, but I still keep trying. I still learn from my mistakes.

I have done several 5% Challenges in my time here (I actually lost count), most of them I have been the Challenge Leader for the Starfish team. As the challenge leader I have to make sure the tracking thread is correct, so it makes sure that I am active and sparking on a regular basis. I hope that I can motivate others to keep with it.

When I am not Sparking, I am working as a full-time Environment, Health, and Safety professional for a chemical company, walking with awesome walking partners (my husband and my dog, Tucker), reading either a book or on my kindle (especially paranormal), listening to music (especially Alt. Rock), or hanging with my friends. I am a huge Phillies fan, even when they are doing bad, and try to get to a couple of game every year.
