Updated 5/23/16

I have had challenges with being overweight since I was a teen. I was always physically active, so I was able to keep my weight at a reasonable level. When I was diagnosed in 2007 with bipolar disorder and rheumatoid arthritis I began to rapidly gain weight. I'm ready to become more fit, with the support of my team members.

When I joined Spark, I weighed 265 pounds. Over a period of three years I have managed to shed 72 pounds and maintain that weight. Currently my goal is a weight of 150 pounds. I plan to gradually take off the remaining 43 pounds over a 24 month period, with a target BMI of approximately 23, while becoming more active, increasing my physical fitness, lowering my LDL cholesterol, and keeping my pre-diabetes blood glucose levels in normal limits.

I want to thank my Spark friends for all the support you have given me.
