I've been Sparking for five years!

I started Sparking in April 2009. Since joining, I've gone through many, many challenges and changes but I keep coming back!

I lost quite a bit of weight and got within 10 pounds of my goal in 2012 but I struggled to maintain it. I gained the weight back over the past year and a half at the rate of almost two pounds a month. I tried and tried but couldn't get any of my old strategies to work again. Then, I had a breakthrough. I discovered that I have reactive hypoglycemia. This information has been life changing and I'm back here on Spark to tackle my weight gain for good!
