Personal Information:
I have been a member of Sparkpeople for many years. I have experienced both success and failure, and there have been many times when I have wandered away from the site for weeks or months at a time. But I'm still here. I refuse to give up. :)

The most important lessons I have learned throughout this journey:
**Start fresh every day
**Forgive yourself.

Other Information:
Like a phoenix, I will rise again
But this time I'll be stronger
And far more determined
And my beauty will shine
Like the rays of the Great Star itself

I ask you...
Are you ready?

~~Jennifer~~
