And I'm BACK!

Hey! What's up! I'm back on Spark People because I NEED SUPPORT! I've already lost 40 lbs in the last 6 months and I am currently training for my first ever FULL marathon on January 16th! I've walked 3 half marathons at my old weight of 285 lbs and now I'm challenging myself to RUN/WALK a full 26.2 miles with a much slimmer version of myself. I joined up with Team in Training to keep me on track with my running and because I'm running in honor of my friend and a 3 time cancer (leukemia twice) ...
Hey! What's up! I'm back on Spark People because I NEED SUPPORT! I've already lost 40 lbs in the last 6 months and I am currently training for my first ever FULL marathon on January 16th! I've walked 3 half marathons at my old weight of 285 lbs and now I'm challenging myself to RUN/WALK a full 26.2 miles with a much slimmer version of myself. I joined up with Team in Training to keep me on track with my running and because I'm running in honor of my friend and a 3 time cancer (leukemia twice) survivor.

I also work out with my trainer, and friend, Clarence Ferguson, three times a week. He knows I have a goal and he's doing everything he can to help me :) He is the BEST trainer the Phoenix area has to offer!

I'm also about to start the Insanity workout program on October 11th. I may be 245lbs, but don't let the fat fool you! I'm one tough cookie and I just want the extra hour of strength training and cardio for the middle of my day. I'm so ready for the challenge!

Hi there! I am from Phoenix I was browsing around spark pages and decided to make some spark friends. I am on spark people because I need all the support and encouragement that I can get and also be able to know people that relate to my weight struggle and help each other out! TTYL
