Spark saved my life

Hello all! My name is Laura. I have been on spark since October 2008 and I can truly say that sparkpeople has changed my life! Through all the support and friends I have met through this amazing community, I decided to change my career from corporate finance to become a Registered Dietitian, with a strong passion for weight management.

Hello all! My name is Laura. I have been on spark since October 2008 and I can truly say that sparkpeople has changed my life! Through all the support and friends I have met through this amazing community, I decided to change my career from corporate finance to become a Registered Dietitian, with a strong passion for weight management. Every day I look across the table to my amazing patients who continue to inspire me and encourage me to always put my health first. I''m now a 60 pound weight loss success story, with those dreaded last 10-20 pounds left before I hit my goal weight. Through spark and beyond, I''ve learned to manage stress and mental health struggles through a healthy diet and exercise. I love spin workouts and I also love to run road races. I''ve been injured and sidelined twice in the past by hip injuries while running. Due to my injuries, now I am exploring other ways to find the intense cardio that my body craves, while strengthening and building muscles without lifting weights in the gym. Reach out to me at any time!
