Hope Rising!

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

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 stopping by my blog. as far as the long run goes, i went about 17.5 yesterday, and am hoping to bump it up to 19 next week. with the marathon about six weeks away it's time to get serious.

Hope,

That "smokin'" picture is from a couple of years ago - and about 8 pounds less than where I am right now. So that is my goal picture to get those 8 pounds back off.

It's so good to have you back! Congrats on being Motivator of the Day! See how much Spark People love you!
