Eight years, Still going Strong!

It is hard for me to believe but it has been 8 years since I found SparkPeople.
I have changed so much in that time that I am truly a different person. Eight years ago I was almost 200 lbs and only 5'3" and could barely walk my dog around the block. Now I regularly walk my dog a couple of miles, face down my elliptical on regular basis, and so much happier. I have made some really awesome friends in that time that have helped every step of the way. I hasn't always been easy and I ...

I have changed so much in that time that I am truly a different person. Eight years ago I was almost 200 lbs and only 5'3" and could barely walk my dog around the block. Now I regularly walk my dog a couple of miles, face down my elliptical on regular basis, and so much happier. I have made some really awesome friends in that time that have helped every step of the way. I hasn't always been easy and I haven't always stuck to the plan. I have lost weight and gained weight, but I still keep trying. I still learn from my mistakes.

I have done several 5% Challenges in my time here (I actually lost count), most of them I have been the Challenge Leader for the Starfish team. As the challenge leader I have to make sure the tracking thread is correct, so it makes sure that I am active and sparking on a regular basis. I hope that I can motivate others to keep with it.

When I am not Sparking, I am working as a full-time Environment, Health, and Safety professional for a chemical company, walking with awesome walking partners (my husband and my dog, Tucker), reading either a book or on my kindle , listening to music (especially Alt. Rock), or hanging with my friends. I am a huge Phillies fan, even when they are doing bad, and try to get to a couple of game every year.

Hi Monaca!

Mark is home and doing well! Really pushing PT/OT, We do Zumba 2 or 3 times weekly. Diane and I are pushing the limits/comfort zone, exercise wise. Do you have any local 5% Challenge members in the local area, who might want to exercise with us? AND are there openings on your team? Champions is full, we are still getting interest and would like to broaden 5%ers on LVS and SP in general.

Busy? I get it! emoticon

Carl & Mark

Thanks so much for being there for me/us during this stressful time!

I did some stress eating - a banana & blueberries! That's a big switch! emoticon
