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!

Through successfully maintaining in (or close to) my goal range for over three years, I learned about my limits and to enjoy my new healthy lifestyle and body! I've picked up a few pounds over the last year though, so my focus for the 2017 is to get them off and return to goal range.

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!
