Still Kickin'

IIt is hard for me to believe but it has been 6 years since I found SparkPeople. I have changed so much in that time that I am truly a different person. Six years ago I was almost 200 lbs and only 5'3" and could barely walk my dog around the block. Now I am in the 150's, 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 hasnít always been easy ...
IIt is hard for me to believe but it has been 6 years since I found SparkPeople. I have changed so much in that time that I am truly a different person. Six years ago I was almost 200 lbs and only 5'3" and could barely walk my dog around the block. Now I am in the 150's, 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 hasnít always been easy and I havenít always stuck to the plan. I have lost weight and gained weight, but I still keep trying. I still learn from my mistakes. This Spring I am recommitting to doing it whole-hearted so I can look and feel my best.

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 (especially paranormal), 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.

Thanks for noticing my absence and commenting on my Spark page. As I wrote on the team wall, I got distracted but am back now!

Oh, the move went nuts!!! The movers were 2 hours late, we wound up leaving at 3:30pm, a 10-hour drive took 14 hours, we arrived at 7am after driving all night, and the tenants PAINTED our walls!!! We had painters in today to fix it. And I'm pretty sure we didn't match one of the colors right. I have to hope I'll get used to it. That's what I get for listening to my husband (he was pretty sure it was the right yellow!).

I'm not working right now, but my husband already got a new job! He looked in Chicago for two years and had one real interview the whole time. He's here less than two weeks, and finds a job immediately! He even got a phone call for another interview on his way to that interview!

I have something in the pipeline...maybe I'll mention it on the private team!

emoticon for your emoticon for my 'Leader in the Spotlight' day! I had no idea that it was my 'special day' (notifications are usually sent out at night) until I signed onto SparkPeople the next morning!

I appreciate you stopping by my page!!! emoticon
