I've been Sparking for five years!

I started Sparking in April 2009. Since joining, I've gone through many, many challenges and changes but I keep coming back!

I used to want to lose weight for all the wrong reasons.
Now I'm older and wiser and I have finally embraced the idea that weight loss is all about getting healthy. There is an alarmingly high rate of Type 2 Diabetes in my family and now is my chance to avoid it.

I have an energetic three year old boy and I want to be a healthy role model ...

I have an energetic three year old boy and I want to be a healthy role model for him.

One of my biggest challenges is that I am a vegetarian but my husband and son are not. They can't have dairy products, so I have been modifying the way that I cook to accommodate both of their needs. Vegan cooking is the best solution. I'm always on the lookout for yummy, healthy vegan recipes for my family.

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
