I am back on the on the "it's a lifestyle not a diet stupid" track.

Over the last few years I have been adding a few pounds here and there but a huge addition occured when I moved to Maui. When I moved to Maui rather than becoming more active I became less. I quit going to the gym thinking that I would exercise outside. Unfortunately, that never happened. Then one day while looking a some vacation pictures I didn't recognize myself. When we got home I decided it was time.

I started with Spark and saw 25 pounds melt away... but then I had to deal with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! The motivation went away but now it is back. I haven't gained much of the weight back... so I have done something right. Now it is time to get the Spark habits back!

Soon the old me will be back and the pictures I see in photo album will reflect the person I know as me!
