About Me

I know that sparkpeople works, I went from 170 to 148 in just a few months in 2011 -2012. Suddenly my life became very stressful and I totally fell off the wagon, forgetting all about exercise and food strategy/meal planning. I went to hospital because of a very severe headache and fatigue (major stress!), and found that my blood pressure was dangerously high. I was put on beta blockers and I immediately began gaining weight, and was so tired that working out seemed impossible.

I went to hospital because of a very severe headache and fatigue (major stress!), and found that my blood pressure was dangerously high. I was put on beta blockers and I immediately began gaining weight, and was so tired that working out seemed impossible.

Changes: I was taking on way too much, at work and in my family (mother moving closer by was an extreme source of stress for me). I have reduced my workload by half by working part-time, and have made peace with my folks being closer. I have a treadmill in my studio which makes exercising convenient, and using the trackers here really motivates me. I am taking half the original dose of beta blocker (doctor supervised) which makes me less tired. Onwards!

Welcome to the team! Finding SP was the best thing I ever did and I know it will be for you too! Love your pictures! I'm a mom of three boys too so I know how hectic life can be trying to take care of your family and yourself too. Sometimes we put ourselves on the back burner, but together we can meet our goal weights! Good luck!!
