A Spark Rekindled!

When I joined Spark People back in 2006, it was with the high hopes that I had finally found an answer to my life long battle with my weight.

I tracked and exercised and lost over 40 lbs! Unfortunately, life changes happened and I quit tracking first and eventually stopped exercising. And I think you know what happened next. Yes, I gained the weight back!

When I joined Spark People back in 2006, it was with the high hopes that I had finally found an answer to my life long battle with my weight.

I tracked and exercised and lost over 40 lbs! Unfortunately, life changes happened and I quit tracking first and eventually stopped exercising. And I think you know what happened next. Yes, I gained the weight back!

Over the last few years, my story is the same as many other Sparkers. My weight has been up and down. My weight is finally taking a toll on my health and I have had to go on blood pressure meds. I am very disappointed in myself but I am not a failure as I have never quit trying.

With that in mind, I joined my first 5% Challenge in the hopes that it will jump start another weight loss streak. This time I have so many old and new Spark Friends to encourage and motivate me into keeping it off and reaching my goal.

I am happy to say that I reached my 5% goal five weeks in to the Challenge and have continued to lose. I am taking baby steps in getting this weight off but I'm determined this time it will be the last!

My Program:
Spark People is the tried and true (not to mention the best) way of losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle so I will be going back to the basics of tracking both calories and exercise. I hope to become more active as my weight comes down.

Personal Information:
My name is Sharon and we recently sold our large home out in the country and downsized to a much smaller home in a manufactured community in Zeeland, MI which is not too far from Lake Michigan and our daughter and her family. I have been married for 47 years to a wonderful man and have two grown children and 6 grandchildren. Since we retired in 2008, we do alot of traveling in our motor home and have been spending our winters in AZ.

Other Information:
My husband and I are retired and love traveling in our Motor Home.

My favorite toy is my computer - I'm addicted, lol.

I enjoy reading - anything!

I have a passion for Cruising!

Thanks, Sharon. I don't usually post pictures of my work but this Hogwarts challenge is getting me back in the groove. Except for a few pieces, my stuff is either in our storage unit or I gave it away or sold it. Definitely should have taken more pictures!

Working in glass also keeps me from snacking. emoticon

Hope those warm temps are continuing.
