2018 Update - I reached my goal weight November 25, 2012. Most of 2017 I hovered just above goal weight but I didn't stress. I continued to maintain my healthy habits.

I completed the Spark 2017 4-Week Holiday Challenge and it helped me enjoy the holidays AND get back to goal weight at the end of the year!

I do not define myself by the scale. It's not about being skinny for me. It's about strength and endurance now.

I believe in baby steps to achieve goals and maintain lifelong healthy habits.

I look forward to continue learning from Spark friends and staying active in 2018!

    Hi Kellie ..
    Thanks for your comment on my blog this morning .. My Magic potion is called PENETRAN PLUS .... www.penetran.com and I literally swear by it, and those that I have gotten to use in (my boss Leonard is my newest success ... emoticon )

    It's expensive but 100000% worth it .. :)

    Strength does not come from controlling our emotions but from learning to control how we respond to them. Guy Winch
