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 since the beginning of 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!

I will follow my SP recommended diet, tracking all food eaten every day, and staying in goal maintenance ranges.

Current Challenge Commitments:
- Summer 5% challenge - Awesome A team
- BLC31 - Powerful Prism Panthers



Personal Information:
I live in South Florida, Eastern time zone, am married to a wonderful man, also a Sparker. Our daughter is married and lives about 4 hours drive away, with her husband and our 3 grandsons.


Other Information:
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!
