On April 12, 2013, I reached my goal weight of 133 lbs. Since then, I have lost 8 more lbs. to stay within my plan to maintain 125 lbs. to 133 lbs. My total weight loss is 28 lbs. Increasing my core strength and stamina with daily exercise has really made a difference in my energy levels and in alleviating my back pain. With a lower back herniation, exercise has managed to keep it in check. I am a big fan of the SP Cookbook and continue to use recipes from it. Overall, I truly believe in the efforts made with this site. With my spark friends and my activity on this site, I have changed my life-style!

Personal Information:
I am a mother of two beautiful talented girls, ages 6 and 4, and I also have my own business. This juggling keeps me busy everyday. My initial spark to change my life-style occurred when my back herniation incapacitated me to the point that I could not move from the bed to the bathroom. I could not even pick up my baby from the crib because it would hurt my back. I needed to start taking care of myself by exercising and strengthening my core. My spark friends are special connections in my life that motivate me to keep going and striving to reach my goals! Thank you, spark friends.


Other Information:
I am obsessed with wearing my FitBit everyday. I feel lost without it. It is a special day when I hit 15,000 steps in a day since my job requires me to do a lot of sitting. But, I strive to increase my steps each day finding ways to add more steps just to see it on my tracker!
