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!



Current Status:

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!

OK Sweetie....Lets see.....
Had too many pretzels yesterday.....NONE today and we have all been really good. Poor Marianne's knee is bothering her but she is such a good sport. The indoor market place wasn't open. they lied. They open Nov. 1st. Also got a few things at the outdoor market and there were only a few vendors open there also. We went to the Territorial State Prison and let Pete walk around. The Fun Factory, and also where I bought my outside decorations to my house. They also bought a few items.
Fun was had by all.
Taking a couple hours off and then off to Applebee's to get dinner. Then tonight the pool.
Life and great and the day is just flying by.

Hugs Girl NO Sweat this Saturday..... How are you doing?

You can just chew just don't swallow. I am going to try that tonight at dinner. HUGS emoticon
