Hello, I started SparkPeople about a week ago. I have been struggling with my weight since I was 19. The heaviest I ever got up to was 260. 2 years ago, I started walking to participate in my first half-marathon. I lost 30 lbs. doing that and I have never felt better in my life. However, last winter, I was derailed by an unexpected surgery in February, but prior to that I had battled some health issues so I basically lost my "oomph" to get motivated. So, here I am, almost 2 years later, in the "fight" mode again. I want to be an inspiration to others out there!

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10
