Hi I have been with spark for 3 years. I have not always been consistent with it. Every year as spring approaches I start tracking. Then as time goes on I think I don't need it but I do. It helps to remind me to stay active and eat healthy. Dec 2014 I have great resolve. Going to Green Smoothies. Veggies and fruit are the greatest. I am loving it. I am now 53.

The physical injuries that made me gain weight were a neck injury and then I got in a bad car crash fracturing L1-L5 and sacrum injury. I have ruptured disks c4-c5, c5-c6 and L3-L4. So for years the weight just keeps creeping on. If you do not stay moving then yes you will gain weight.

I am currently in Physical therapy and on my way to try to regain activity. I am determined to lose the weight and repair my body of injury and get back in shape.

I am post surgery over a year and have not recovered. My activity level is still low. I have a new Physical Therapist who is helping me to modify exercises that I can do with my neck injury and non fusion after surgery.

    I spent a year taking care of my son. I spent 6 weeks taking care of my daughter and grandchildren. I also took care of my mom and sadly she passed Feb 6. I lost track of all diet and exercise.

    Time to get back on track and I am motivated.

    I had a busy summer with twin grandchildren being born. They were number 6 and 7. I am getting back on track now. Yes I keep my weight maintained. Woot

    I was hoping to lose a few lbs over the summer but I am very happy I did not gain anything.

    Awesome that you are able to ride. I have a Harley and I am still not able to ride it from an injury.

    Thanks for dropping by my page. I like the way the Spyder handles. I just have to limit how long I can ride before I have to switch drivers with my husband if we are on a longer trip. After about 75 miles my left shoulder starts bothering me. Old injury and I tense up. The Spyder has power steering and is semi-automatic.
