Still Kickin'

IIt is hard for me to believe but it has been 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 hasnít always been easy ...
IIt is hard for me to believe but it has been 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 hasnít always been easy and I havenít always stuck to the plan. I have lost weight and gained weight, but I still keep trying. I still learn from my mistakes. This Spring I am recommitting to doing it whole-hearted so I can look and feel my best.

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.

emoticon Happy Sunday! Thank you for sharing the spotlight with me. Today's inspiration is brought to you by : Don Lancaster

Most "impossible" goals can be met simply by breaking them down into bite size chunks, writing them down, believing them, and then going full speed ahead as if they were routine.

So here's to making your goals and breaking them down, writing them down and believing you can achieve them so you can start your full force speed towards getting them as we begin our new week! Have an emoticon Sunday! emoticon emoticon
