I am a very busy stay at home wife and mother of 3 teenagers. I have been Sparking since 2009. This year I decided to marry exercise with eating and have lost over 23 pounds since January. I am only 9 pounds away from my goal weight. I feel better than I have ever felt in my life. I have energy, stamina and endurance. I can even out run my kids. Pretty good for a 46 year old. I now have a passion to help others. I will be getting my personal training certification and am starting a health and fitness blog to share my journey and give tips and pointers that helped me. I am passionate about exercise and eating healthy and want to be an example for my children and others as I model a healthy lifestyle. Sparkpeople got me sparked now I feel like a fireworks display. Blossoming daily.

    "One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
    We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
    That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
    We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
    We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
    And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
    For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
    Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"

    “In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

    “You give up on what you need to be doing because you forget that you're worth it. This is why most people aren't leading exemplary lives...You have to believe in yourself so much that you're willing to do what's uncomfortable, time-consuming, inconvenient, and on occasion seemingly impossible. When you don't believe in yourself this much, pretend.”
