After a year of maintaining, I'm loving life! 2015 will be another rocking year!!!

After one year (2013) of being active again on Spark, I lost over 70 pounds, attained my final weight goal and am in the best shape of my life. This time I've gotten it right! Lifestyle changes, not just diet!

Now I've maintained in my goal range so far in 2014, learning my limits and enjoying my new healthy lifestyle and body! Goals are now to keep improving - to run longer and faster, and to be stronger! I love training for new challenges!

Commitment is the key to anything worthwhile...if it's not important enough to commit, it won't happen.

Back in December 2012 when I made the commitment to get serious about this health thing, I didn't really know what it would take, but I made it a priority and stuck with it!

emoticon to a new week of choices. Make them your best! Today's food for thought is by Robert Louis Stevenson:

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant."

May you have a week of good choices and may you plant lots of seeds that will help you reap your goals. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
