I've been working for the last year on creating better healthier choices in my life. So far I have lost 25 lbs, quit smoking almost 8 months ago, and began working out in fitness classes, with a personal trainer, and at home, and in December I found SparkPeople.

I am starting to learn that the most important person I should be looking out for is myself. No one else can count on me if I don't take the time to take care of me. My husband is involved in this process too and has lost a significant amount of weight himself. I would be lost without his support. He doesn't even complain much about the changes I've made to the kind of food we eat now :)

SparkPeople has given me the tools I need to be successful. I am continuing my journey to my goal weight of 155 lbs and enjoying myself along the way.
