Hope Rising!

Hello! I am "Hope". Actually, my first name is Maureen :)

I guess the first thing you should know about me is that I live a pretty unconventional life. I live in a VERY rural village in Western Kenya with my husband and three children. (Originally I hale from Vermont.)

I started this journey at 315 lbs. Before I got pregnant with my daughter, I had lost 130 lbs, and was weighing in at 185 lbs. I don't know my exact weight today... my last weigh in was at 215 lbs ...

I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl on April 2nd, 2013. She was and is my motivation to return to Spark, and get serious about taking care of my health and wellness again.

Thanks for your comment on my blog, it's nice to meet you!!! I just started getting up early last week tomorrow will complete two weeks of doing this and I feel so much better starting my day with calories burned! :) But, I totally know what you mean by not getting up early... its still an adjustment for me.

Hills are a beast, but if you start riding you will eventually conquer them. Think of the thighs of steel you'd have!
