I joined SP in Feb 2012 and within the first year and a half, I got out of a bad news relationship, gained alot of self confidence, quit smoking, quit drinking, lost over 50 pounds, lowered my cholesterol, and found my Mr Right!

It was a long journey to get where I was & I maintained for 2 years but then gained 20 pounds back over an extended holiday season (Oct 2015- Feb 2016). I've learned so much along the way & I'm ready to get back on track. I'm a work in progress and I know I'm changing my lifestyle so it will be easier to make better choices & stay healthy.

I signed up for the 2016 Fall 5% Challenge and lost 2 pounds before it started! I was psyched but didn't quite lose my 5%, I was 3 pounds short.

My next adventure is the Biggest Loser Winter Challenge 2016, starting Dec 6th. My goal is to lose 10 pounds. Hear me roar!

Good luck fellow Sparkfriends! WE CAN do this!
