After over 6 months of maintaining, I'm loving life! 2014 is a rocking year!!!

After one year 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 for over 6 months, 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!

Hi Alie, thanks for stopping by my page today! You've made my day! Yes, I joined again for Summer 5 % challenge with casual traveller again. Hope you are still having fun with awesome A. How's your maintenance going? Fine I hope. I came back from vacation in May and packed some vacation weights but thanks goodness I worked it out quickly and I'm now maintain again. But this time I've learned lesson ( hopefully) and won't gain back again. Lol)))
Have a wonderful weeks my dear! emoticon emoticon emoticon
