I am making a new commitment to myself! In 2007 I joined the Biggest Loser Club and over the course of a year, lost 105 pounds. Since then I put on 30 pounds. I have really struggled with the mind set of maintenance and the motivation to get going again. I am finally able to realize that these choices we make are for a lifetime. Yes, it's work, but work worth doing. I love myself too much to let all of my hard work go to waste. My 2 beautiful daughters need a positive role model to live ...

My 2 beautiful daughters need a positive role model to live a healthy lifestyle (something I never had) so that the cycle does not continue. Watch out world, here I come!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to be healthy. There are perks though, like being able to shop anywhere I want. I don't want to be a weight-loss statistic so I rely on continued support to get me to my goal weight and then stay there!

Personal Information:
I am a very busy person! I work full time with children that have special needs. I am also a mother of 2 beautiful girls ages 7 and 4. I am a Girl Scout leader and a wife. My favorite type of exercise is walking long distances (I am walking my 2nd Breast Cancer 3 Day this year) and running shorter distances. I am lucky to have beautiful scenery with all of my outdoor activities here in sunny San Diego! I am also getting very involved in Choy Li Fut Kung Fu. It's a great workout and very empowering.

Hey Christine- thanks so much for adding me as a friend- I am just loving these pics of you- you have done such an incredible job. I'm so glad you joined a local spark team- I have been organizing walks and have really met some wonderful people. I have even found two walking buddies close by my house- I am looking forward to you making your goal!!! Sharon emoticon

Thank you for your quick response to my question re: outings! The 3 day!?! How cool is that? Is that one where you have to raise money, like the team in training marathon? Is it the Avon one or the Susan G. Komen one? What date do you start the walk???

Well, I think that is just great!! I have always wanted to do something like that but didn't want to do it alone. I am hoping to reach out to others in my area that like being active, like me, and sometime soon I will have others in my life that like to do the same sorts of things!!

Thanks again for your input!!!

Leah

P.S. I am going to add you as a friend! I hope you don't mind. Feel free to do the same for me!

Hey there!! I am just stopping by to welcome you to the San Diego SparkTeam!!! The team hasn't been very active in the past but I am the new team leader and I hope to change that. Please stop by and post, if you get a chance. I would love to get your input and ideas on monthly outings (i.e. walking, running, tennis, bowling, kayaking, etc.) and if this would be something you would potential want to participate in.

Congrats on your amazing weight loss!!! Way to go!!!

Good luck on your journey and let me know if I can support you in any way!!!

Leah
