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!
