Hi everyone, and welcome to my Spark Page!

My name is Danielle, and I officially started my weight loss journey in April of 2008. I was 60 pounds overweight and MISERABLE. I could blame it on a lot of things - college, quitting smoking, pregnancies, etc. - but the truth of the matter is that I had simply stopped taking care of myself!

Since then, I've lost 39 pounds. I couldn't run for 30 seconds, and March 8, 2009 I completed my first half marathon. I completed another in September, and have registered for several more! My husband and two sweet babies are my inspiration, but I am SO PROUD of MYSELF for taking care of ME again.

SparkPeople is the reason I've stuck with this lifestyle change. The information and inspiration on the site are limitless! But what has made the most difference are my Spark Friends who encourage me everyday. I hope to be equally motivating to them and to YOU as well!

Please feel free to Spark Mail me if you have ANY questions at all about the site or what I've been doing to lose the weight. My progress has been slow, but I've done it in REAL LIFE.

You can do this...You are AMAZING!!!

I believe in Jesus Christ and that He can help me through this battle and every other battle I face in life.

UPDATE: January 2010

Well, life has gotten in the way a little, and I'm up in my numbers a good bit. Although I'm frustrated and disappointed, its a good reminder that CONSTANT VIGILANCE is necessary for the rest of my life! I want to be healthy, but I have to make healthful choices every day. Yes, I will make mistakes, but I can never throw up my hands again and say, "I don't care". Because I DO care, and I never want to be in this place again!
