New Beginnings in 2015

In 2010, I lost 41 pounds with Sparkpeople. In the summer of 2011, I hit a snag in my personal life and by the time 2012 rolled around, I had gained 14 pounds back. I started a FB page that now has over 2,300 followers, and lost the 14 pounds.

Enter 2013. I lost my mom to COPD and heart disease. She battled obesity a huge portion of her life, and I vowed I would get down to my goal weight and make her proud. Finally, in the fall of 2013, I weighed what my driver's license said ...

I have struggled since then, finding the time to work out, working full time and running around with a very busy teenager. My dad moved in with me when my mom died, so I was buying all kinds of crap to eat. Slowly the pounds started coming back on.

2014 was terrible, and I won't even get into it here, planning to blog about it.

So here I am again on my own. Hoping to catch the spark again I had a few years ago when it worked. I am setting new goals, and starting a new chapter in my life.

Bring on 2015!
