It's Never Too Late To Be Who You Are!

Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by my Spark Page. Please feel free to drop in any time and say hello.

My name is Candi and this is my story. I have gained and lost weight all of my adult life. Like many of you, I am a stress and emotional eater and I have used every excuse in the book to keep from getting rid of my bad habits!

Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by my Spark Page. Please feel free to drop in any time and say hello.

My name is Candi and this is my story. I have gained and lost weight all of my adult life. Like many of you, I am a stress and emotional eater and I have used every excuse in the book to keep from getting rid of my bad habits!

In December 2006, I ran my first half-marathon and then ran three more over the next year. I ran two other half-marathons for a total of 5. Then, for many reasons, I slipped up and gained 50 pounds.

I recently got back into running again and on November 14, 2010, I ran the San Antonio Half-Marathon. It was an amazing experience and I was so proud of myself for the accomplishment. So I kept running and set a goal to run 6 more Half-Marathons in 2011. I am proud to say that I did it!

I am happy to have found this website and I am thrilled by the amount of support and encouragement that I have been given here. I hope that others will find that I am supportive of them also. Together, we WILL reach our goals!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I have eliminated sugar, too, as part of the elimination diet but sadly here I am on day 5 and it doesn't seem to have made any difference so far. Guess I'll now give up nuts and eggs and see if that makes a difference. Make a big pot of lentils, I guess!
