Hi Spark Family!

Im 38 years old, 54", and am a certified (American Council of Exercise - ACE) personal trainer who has been in maintenance after losing over 50 pounds since August 2010. I love connecting with others. So, feel free to email me!

I started off as a naturally thin person. I never had issues with my weight until young adulthood. Prior to that, I was a pesco vegetarian who was also very active. But then, I started eating meat and lots of junk food, quit smoking (which was a good thing!), and WOW did the pounds just pile on. My self-confidence plummeted, and I believed that I would never get the weight off. I started having a series of heart issues that landed me in the hospital about 5 times during 2008 alone. My doctors told me that the sudden weight gain wasnt helping and that I needed to lose it if I wanted to minimize my chances of having prolonged heart issues.

So, there I was in November of 2009 weighing about 60/65 pounds more than I had previously. (My heaviest was 195 pounds and Im 54".) It was around this time that I had a dream that changed my life. In the dream, I was looking into a bathroom mirror and a healthier version of me looked back at me. This other version of me told me that I was not living up to my fullest potential and that I was using my weight to hide who I was. I felt this large amount of unconditional love emanating from this healthier version of myself. This other version of me looked vibrant, alive, and full of peace. It was such a remarkable feeling.

I awoke from the dream feeling renewed. The dream moved me emotionally, and I jotted it down in a journal. From that point onward, I became completely driven. I read everything I could get my hands on regarding weight gain, weight loss, heart health and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I found an online food diary in January 2010 and have never looked back.

I joined the food diary and Spark after losing 8 lbs on my own. Im committed to maintaining my new healthier lifestyle. In the past, I tried fad diets like Atkins and while I lost the weight, eventually I had to eat carbs and gained it all back and then some. LOL So, I decided to really get serious about changing my lifestyle altogether.

Im so happy to have connected with folks here. I feel fantastic and I'm so happy that I have turned my life around health wise! I am also extremely happy to be able to help others take back their bodies and their health!

Thanks for visiting my page! I'd love to connect with you.

All the best,
Bree
