A car accident in 2001 is what set me back since I was inactive for almost 3 years because of pain.

I got this quote off another sparker's page...but it works well for me too!

I am always curious to what really makes it work for people, so I am going to list below the things I have found that really work well for me on my weight loss journey.

- Drink 16-24 ounces of water in the morning before I eat breakfast
- Eat lots of protein.
- Walk a minimum of 45 minutes 5 days a week
- Surround yourself with great friends - Manda and Kara - you both ROCK!!! Thank you to all my Spark friends for helping keep me motivated.
- Being a team leader or co-leader keeps me on track.
