My name is Ute, I live in Upstate New York with my husband, my two dogs and a cockatiel. Our twin girls were born in 1992. Sarah finished her Bachelor's in Graphic Design in 2017 and lives in the area. Julia finished her MPA Diploma in 2016 and moved to Germany where she met the love of her life, and decided to stay indefinitely.
I have been a Spark Member since 2006 and always enjoy the support from my fellow Sparkers. My main focus is to use the tools here to help me lose the excess weight that might lead to health problems down the road, and take pressure off my knees. My favorite pastime on Spark are the 5% Challenges, and helping to lead the Shooting Stars as one of the Extra Leaders This Summer I also joined the BLC Invincible Indigo Team, and I am very excited for both challenges!

What will I eat?
Simple.... I love to eat, and I have been my most successful by just tracking everything I eat daily, sometimes before, sometimes after. I incorporate everything I love into my meals and snacks, since I will be changing my habits for the rest of my life, not just for a few weeks. It has to be attainable and realistic.

    C25K was an app for my phone. I am happy with the program so far. I tend to always press too hard and end up with injury. Holding myself back is the hardest part of this program for me. I am committing to stick with it injury free. emoticon

    Thanks for the goodie gift of veggies and your encouraging message! I'm enjoying the 5% team participation more than I expected - I'm not much for the whole social media fluff and nonsense, but interacting in this small group setting is really helpful.
