Over the past 4 years, I have lost a total of 61.4 pounds through fad diets, Weight Watchers, and now Spark People.

I really decided to take the healthy route of losing weight in summer of 2012 when I lost my dad to cancer. I decided no more unhealthy fad diets. I lost 32 pounds and ran my first half marathon by the end of that year.

My goal is to get back on track, stay committed and consistent, and feel better about myself to hopefully become an all around healthier person.

This summer I have been up and down with using Spark People and staying consistent. I the next month, I hope to get myself back to staying strong with my journey to a new me!!
