Practicing Consistency is the Key!

I used to love to workout, using cardio and weight lifting regularly. After a painful divorce, I gained quite a bit of weight. I fell in love with a wonderful man and moved to another state. I was able to lose over 50 pounds after regaining control of my life. During the first five months in 2009 on Spark People I was able to get down to 121!

Lots of things have happened for me since I joined. I got married in May, 2009, had cochlear implant surgery in 2009 (I am hearing amazingly well!!), and major surgery in 2010. I also got my LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor) in April, 2014! Studying for that exam really took its toll on my weight and I hit 150-a weight I have not been at since November, 2004! I hope I never lose control like this again.

I managed to to lose some of the weight I regained. I am still working on losing a few more pounds. Developing a healthy lifestyle is truly challenging at times. The most inportant thing is that I have been able to learn to love myself, rather than engage in self-loathing. It is a process with ups and downs, though. I also earned my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in December, 2014. Life is great. :-)
