After three years on SparkPeople, I have made some noteworthy self-discoveries. This is the first time I have ever made a lasting commitment to exercise regularly, made a deliberate decision and consistent effort to lose weight, and believed myself capable of reaching my goals.

Truth be told, 5 years ago I'd never have thought of myself as a marathoner, a powerifter, or a martial artist (well, I still have a ways to go on the martial artist part).

But believe me, if I can become a fitness enthusiast, anyone can.....or maybe I'm just real stubborn and refuse to quit!
