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!

Good morning and Happy May Day! I hope you have a Fabulous Friday and a fantastic weekend! Today's inspiration is from Elbert Hubbard:

"A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success."

Here's to a month of more persistence and more effort which will mean more success! Have a Marvelous May! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Wondered if you were interested in reviving the team "SP Class of December 2-8 2007? I'm willing to take over as Leader if there are people out there who would like to see it active again.

Hugs, Eve
