My journey with spark started several years ago and I was making some progress but only since March of this year have I put much effort in spark and truly changed my attitude to living a healthy life style. Sure over the past 15 years I "dieted" but as my weigh crept up and my health deteriorated, I became frustrated and my self esteem plummeted.

My journey with spark started several years ago and I was making some progress but only since March of this year have I put much effort in spark and truly changed my attitude to living a healthy life style. Sure over the past 15 years I "dieted" but as my weigh crept up and my health deteriorated, I became frustrated and my self esteem plummeted. It became a vicious cycle until I reached my heaviest at 241. When I saw a picture of myself at this weight (I did not allow pictures of me to be taken) , I was totally disgusted that I had allow my self to become so unhealthy...... that I had allowed the excuse told to me by so many "well you have thyroid issues so you will be heavy" take over my life. Well not anymore!

I intend to LIVE a healthy lifestyle... this doesn't mean dieting. It means eating a well balanced diet of healthy delicious foods-fruits, vegetables, lien proteins and carbs that will fuel my body.

I intend to LOVE with passion... love God, love myself, love my husband, love my family and friends and love life to its fullest!

I intend to LAUGH often. By this I mean not taking things too seriously...being able to laugh at myself and experience true joy.

Just stopping by to let everyone know I changed my name from ESLTEACHER55. I also changed my profile pic at the same time. What was I thinking?!?! Some ladies have had trouble finding me.

Hope you are having an awesome day!
