I was 27 when we first found spark people in 2007. Lots has changed since beginning our fitness journey, yet nothing has stopped us. For starters I am going to be 33 this year. Still on the path to health and fitness. Nate and I have completed multiple races...5K, 10K, and a half marathon. Currently having fun with Warrior dashes. Nursing injuries along the way but still pushing will be a lifetime of ....pushing forward :) Maybe someday we will actually reach our weight and fitness goals! Until then...we are happy, healthy, and strong.

I have done Atkins for several years and lost a lot of weight at times, now I am ready to lose it for good with healthy eating habits and lots of exercise. I am tired of going up and down, I just want my lifestyle to naturally keep me thin, healthy, and happy.

Personal Information:
I have an amazing husband of 13 years and two fur babies. I am an Intensive Care Nurse and I am currently preparing to start grad school in anesthesia in June. My time will soon not be my own, so I need to have my body in a good place BEFORE school starts!

Other Information:
My best friend Ruth directed me to this site several years ago and did very well with it, so my husband and I decided to join together. It is invaluable for tracking food!
