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 used to want to lose weight for all the wrong reasons.
Now I'm older and wiser and I have finally embraced the idea that weight loss is all about getting healthy. There is an alarmingly high rate of Type 2 Diabetes in my family and now is my chance to avoid it.

I have an energetic three year old boy and I want to be a healthy role model ...

One of my biggest challenges is that I am a vegetarian but my husband and son are not. They can't have dairy products, so I have been modifying the way that I cook to accommodate both of their needs. Vegan cooking is the best solution. I'm always on the lookout for yummy, healthy vegan recipes for my family.

Personal Information:
I want to celebrate my 40's with a stronger, healthier body!

April marked my third year on Spark. I had a baby in 2010 and two surgeries earlier this summer so I took a break for a while but now I'm back and I'm serious about losing weight again.


Other Information:
I am participating in the Season of the Beast Challenge and I'm very proud to be a member of the Bahama Mamas team!
