It has not been a simple journey for me. When I began my sparks journey, I thought I can do this project of calories in and calories burned. I will be thin in no time.
It wasn't that easy for me. Yes, I have lost 40 lbs, but that is not near the amount of weight I need to lose. What I have gained here is the mindset of an athlete. I am able to do workouts that I never thought I would be able to accomplish. I now have the confidence to participate in Martial Arts, Weight Training, Cardio and soon swimming.
I am conquering my emotional eating habits because I learned that until that happens no diet in the world is going to work for me.
I may not be on the success pages of Sparks, but I am the most healthy and fit I have ever been in my life. I contribute that to God, my Spark friends and my wonderful husband. Take the challenge and don't ever give up!

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. (Zechariah 4:6)
