Wow! I just ran my 1st half marathon at Disney World with Liliana! Praise God! 1-10-15
Our first Acevedo-Gandara 5k ... with awesome friends! YMCA Bridgefest Feb 2015
I love being a wife, mom, singer, worship leader, speaker, blogger and occasional community theatre actor.
I'm grateful that I was able to lose the weight I gained with pregnancy...twice! Thank you, Lord! But since we moved to Texas, I found out it's true that everything's bigger in Texas, including me!
My goal is to get down as close as possible to my wedding weight: 117lbs. Pre-pregnancy weight is 128. Anything in that range will be a WIN!
More than the weight, I want to be healthy and strong. Yes, losing weight is part of it, but the goal is healthy, not skinny.
I pray practically every night, asking God to give my kids a long, fruitful, healthy, satisfying life to glorify Him. I pray that for all my family in 2016 and beyond.
And I pray that God will bless YOU & help you reach your goals, too!
*Lose 30-40 lbs (to get back down to wedding weight and improve my health.)
-Drink water (8 cups/day)
-Exercise at least 30 minutes/6xweek
-Use emeals for dinner
-Use SP for breakfast & lunch meal planning
I'm a puertorrican girl living in Texas with her family. We love Jesus! I work in radio (KSBJ), sing in church (Second Baptist), love doing theatre & Zumba, completed my 1st half-marathon this year, and am looking forward to a healthier lifestyle!
My favorite Bible verse is Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ."

Hey Coppelia, me and my fiancée love you on Air 1. I've heard you talk about Spark People on air before and you've become an inspiration for us to lose weight. I had major back surgery in May of 2010 and I know I needed to lose weight so I don't hurt my back any more. So you're one of the inspirations that are helping me do this. Take care, God Bless. -Matt

I'm Spark Coach Tanya's husband Scott. I've listened to you for years on Air1 and Klove. I've loved your shows. I've often heard you, Scott, Eric, Kelli, Sean, Mandy, etc. talking about taking off some pounds. Then one day I heard you mention your Air1 team on Sparkpeople. I'm glad you found this site. It looks like your having great success. Congratulations!
