Hi, my name is Lindsey and I initially joined SPARK to lose weight for my wedding. On March 7, 2010 I married my best friend, and while I didn't reach my goal weight I did feel comfortable in my skin and felt beautiful on my wedding day.

In June 2011 we found out that we were expecting our first child! I had a wonderful pregnancy and was rarely ever sick! (Thank God for zero morning sickness) On February 29th, our son made his big debut one week early. Gavin Josiah was born via a natural birth and has abundantly blessed out lives. :)

However, with this blessing came a ton of extra weight. I gained 37 lbs and reached 190 lbs. Since his birth I have lost 23 lbs with breastfeeding, but still have quite a ways to go. I would love to lose the last 14 pounds of baby weight, but I also want to lose an additional 18 lbs to get down to my goal weight of 135 lbs. I am a curvy 5'3" and would like to keep my womanly figure. More than "getting skinny", I'd really like to tone up and become healthy!

This is MY year to reach my weight loss goal. I am SICK and TIRED of always desiring to be better. It's "put up or shut up" time and I am ready to become who I've always wanted to be!!!!!

I would like to be toned and reach my goal weight by a cabin trip my husband and I are taking with some friends.

**Old Goals**
I would like to tone up for my wedding. If I end up losing 20 lbs. and reaching my goal -- GREAT! If not, that's okay too as long as I am toned.

I would like to reach my goal weight and become more toned for this summer. My new husband and I would like to take advantage of living in Charlest


My Program:
I am following the suggested nutrition plan from SP, and I am easing into working out with the 30 Day Shred. I plan on starting the Insanity work-out on May 1st.



Personal Information:
I am originally from Lafayette, LA but am currently living in Charleston, SC. I love God, my husband Keith, my son Gavin, the Yankees, and my family. :)


Other Information:
In my life be lifted high. In my world be lifted high. In my love be lifted high...

    Comfort from our LORD: Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

    Dear Friend, Hope you have a blessed week-end.
    One of my favorite Bible Verses:
    The Golden Rule! Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you. What kind of world would it be if we all lived by this rule. HUGS!

    A Poem of Hope
    by Helena Fehr

    I feel the arms of God around me,
    as I lay on my bed at night.
    Asleep, I feel the Angel's touch-
    I'm surrounded and held tight.
