This isn't my first time on Sparks but I do intend it to be my first 1st SERIOUS time on Sparks. I recently lost about 10 pounds of weight that I gained once I met my husband and I'm looking to melt off the final 4-6 pounds plus tone up. The key with me is making gradual changes rather than severe ones. If my lifestyle change is too drastic all at once, I get overwhelmed and feel deprived and give up right away.

I'm 5'5" and in the past 7 years, I've been anywhere from 120 - 150. I'm hovering around 132 now and I'm mainly focused on toning up and maintaining a healthy eating regimine. Though, I'd love to see 128 or so on the scale ;)

This time, I started with eating better. Once I felt that I had a handle on that, I added in some running. Now that I've grown to love that, I'm incorporating some strength training. The last time I tried Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, I made it a week but saw definite progress. So why didn't I stick with it? lol I've completed Day 1 so far and it left me far too sore to attempt Day 2 until 3 days later. This will be my journey to stick with the healthy eating, stick with the running/walking during the week and to incorporate the 30 day shred into my routine to see even more results.
