Feb 2017
My name is Monique & I've been on SPARK since 2008. Take in fewer calories than you expend & you have a winning calculation for weight loss. Unfortunately for most of us there's more to it than a math equation. Math was never my strong suit anyway.

I was able to lose 50 pounds last year. I started getting regular chiropractic care, I was eating better, I had a major stressor remove himself from my life, I was exercising harder & more frequently. And it worked. The planets aligned & the weight came off.

I need to re-align my planets again. I've gotten off kilter & lost my way. I'd really like to be a LOT closer to my "ultimate goal" by my 10 year SPARK anniversary. That would make me feel like a Success Story.

Other interesting tidbits:
* I'm the Mom of one spoiled dog & 3 mostly grown boys
* I'm a 7 year Survivor of Inflammatory Breast Cancer
* I'm a part time college student who will get her Associate's in May 2017.
* I help care for my 95 year old Grandmother with Alzheimer's
* My knees are bone on bone

    DON’T
    WAIT
    until you’ve
    reached your goal
    to be proud of yourself.
    BE PROUD OF
    every step you take toward
    reaching your goal.

    Success comes from taking
    THE INITIATIVE
    And following up…
    PERSISTING…
    What simple action could
    YOU TAKE TODAY
    to produce
    a new momentum toward success in
    YOUR LIFE?

    Did you try the lime slices? I get so bored with plain water but am trying hard to drink more of the stuff! I am also playing around with lemons, oranges, and mint extract in my water (not all at once)! Over the summer when watermelon was abundant, I put some in my food processor then poured it in my water with ice for a sweet treat. Have any other ideas to try?

    FAILURES
    are only the
    building blocks
    to your
    SUCCESS.
