I joined SP in Feb 2012 and within the first year and a half, I got out of a bad news relationship, gained alot of self confidence, quit smoking, quit drinking, lost over 50 pounds, lowered my cholesterol, and found my Mr Right!

It was a long journey to get where I was & I maintained for 2 years but then gained 20 pounds back over an extended holiday season (Oct 2015- Feb 2016). I've learned so much along the way & I'm ready to get back on track. I'm a work in progress and I know I'm changing my lifestyle so it will be easier to make better choices & stay healthy.

I signed up for the 2016 Fall 5% Challenge that starts Sept 24th and lost 2 pounds before it started! I'm psyched!

Good luck fellow Sparkfriends! WE CAN do this!
