Me and my Hubby!
Look at me now!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Let's see where do I began!
It started from birth....maybe that's too far back!
Ok, when I was two...still too far!
Ok, I remember in 5th grade being call "fatty"!...still holding on to that...must let it go!
Aight, 8th grade, made the middle school cheerleading team and had a hard time finding a uniform to fit...dang, still too far?
OK, 10th grade, went out for cheerleader again, did not make varsity, but made captain of junior varsity because the sponsor said I was too "heavy" for varsity...Ok let's STOP now!
I went to college at 200lbs. Met the man of my dreams, he cheated on me and then God said here is the perfect man for you! I gained and gained and he still loved me. We graduated and got married. My wedding dress was a size 30. We tried to get pregnant, had issues with that because I was heavy. Took hormone shots and God bless me with a beautiful baby boy. 2 years later a doctor told me to loose weight or die. I did not head his advice. I was started on meds for HBP, Diabetes, Anemia, and High Cholestrol. 1 year later went back and still had not lost the weight. He made me sign my own death certificate (YES HE DID THAT LITERALLY!). He started me on a 2nd med for Diabetes. I said ok doc, you win. I started WW (my version anyway) and exercising. I lost 90lbs in 2 years. Starting weight was 330lbs. Starting teaching group fitness and exercise became my addiction. Got pregnant and had a beautiful baby girl May 2007. Tried to start the WW thing again and just couldn't. It was boring! So, I found SP and fell in LOVE!
My goal is to be able to walk into any store and put on a size 14! That may not seem small enough to most, but to me it is everything! I haven't worn a 14 since the 5th grade!
I follow my Sparkpeople eating plan everday! Exercising in my a major part of my life. BodyPump is on Mon, Wed and 2nd and 4th Sat. BodyStep on Tues & Thurs. I finish the week with BodyJam on Fri! Cardio and Weight Training pulls the weight off and make me helathier and stronger!
I am from Birmingham, AL by way of Hunstville, AL! I was born and raised in Mobile, AL and left going to college and never returned. I went to the best HBCU! Alabama A&M University! GO BULLDOGS!
I am a group fitness instructor at Riviera Fitness in Birmingham, AL. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EXERCISING!

I've been off SP for many a month, but I'm back on the wagon again! I went to the Les Mills Quarterly in Atlanta today and wondered if you went this year! It was great, but I'm dead right now! :)
