My Journey

Hi, my name is Carol. I'm 45, have been married for 21 years, and have 4 kids (19,16,15, and 13). I have NEVER been skinny, but over the last few years, the weight has kept creeping up on me. I had been finding it so hard to take it off now that I'm in my 40's. I thought Sparkpeople would be a great tool to motivate me....and besides, it's FREE!

With the help of this awesome site, and an unbelievable Personal Trainer, I have turned my life around in the last 9 months. My weight loss journey continues, but I am in the best shape I have been in since my 20's!

I have been so inspired that I decided to get my certification to become a Personal Trainer. I have a degree in Exercise Science that I have never put to practical use, but I just thought "It's never to late to decide what you want to be when you grow up!" LOL

I am hopeful that my own journey will make me a better trainer in that I can be empathetic about my clients' struggles while setting a good example for what can be accomplished at a later stage of life!
