I am a 51-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day.

I am a 51-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day. I have my bad days but SP has taught me how to deal with the ups and downs without falling back into unhealthy habits; and my Spark Friends support and motivate throughout each and every day. I believe that I will reach my weight loss and life goals by using the tools I've learned; and as long as SP is here, I will be here too.

SP, its staff and its members are nothing short of a miracle in my life.

Leanne thanks for stopping by my blog, much appreciated.
We took the girls to Table Rock Lake today, they thought the water in the shallower water was warm. We couldn't let them in too long as they both forgot their sunscreen. If we do go back tomorrow, maybe I will brave it and try and get some water walking and jogging in. It was very hot 96 today and very sunny.

Leanne thanks for taking the time to read my blog about my Endo Dr. appt. It is so great getting relief ( with the help of the ear drops). I had never had swimmer ear before.
