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

I lost quite a bit of weight and got within 10 pounds of my goal in 2012 but I struggled to maintain it. I gained the weight back over the past year and a half at the rate of almost two pounds a month. I tried and tried but couldn't get any of my old strategies to work again. Then, I had a breakthrough. I discovered that I have reactive hypoglycemia. This information has been life changing and I'm back here on Spark to tackle my weight gain for good!

"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!"

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
