Leaving a Healthy Legacy

Everything that I've ever needed, I've had all along.

I'm concentrating on a lifestyle change. When I started this journey April 2010 I used food like an addict. I would obsess over foods like fries, cookies, and blizzards. I would obsess over why losing weight was out of my reach. That obsession would make the cravings seem out of my control.

I would use eating to solve problems that food is not capable of solving, and I still catch myself in this behavior but ...

I would use eating to solve problems that food is not capable of solving, and I still catch myself in this behavior but it's so much easier to move past now than it was a year ago.

I believe it's my time to live a better life. I'm ready to live and I love that my children and husband are proud of me for what I've accomplished so far.

I am so thankful for the people of Spark that have helped me lose weight, increase my self-confidence, and maintain the weight loss even when it wasn't my primary focus.

Personal Information:
I am a 42 year old mother of 3 children (21, 11, and 10). Yep, we thought we were done.

All 3 of my children are the most important thing in my life. I have been so blessed with the responsibility of raising them.

My husband is an incredible man who loves me with his whole being. I'm a very lucky woman.

We've traveled the world, lived in interesting places, and are now nested in IA where our last 2 children were born. I'm a KS girl but I adore IA. I think I'll live here until I die.

Other Information:
I love to boat and camp from the time the ice melts from the river until the snow blocks the boat ramps.

I love to play guitar and read.

I am a perpetual student. I love learning new things inside the classroom and in everyday life.

I work full-time outside the home and I am a volunteer emergency medical responder for our local fire department.
