My name is Rachael and I am 35 years old.
Spark has changed my life for the better. In 2008 I lost 30lbs and got down to my all time low of 129lbs. Then I got pregnant in 2009. Which is a blessing but it also involves putting some weight back on. Now it's 2015 and I'm trying to lose 40lbs.

I'm uncomfortable in my own skin and I need to get the weight off. Spark has worked for me in the past and I want to commit to using Spark again to help me lose this extra weight and live a healthier lifestyle. I'm also trying to balance work life better as I work full time as a teacher.

I had a light bulb moment when I was on vacation and my husband took a picture of me. I didn't even recognize myself and I was so sad when I saw that picture. I didn't realize how out of hand I had gotten. It was definitely a reality check. I think that was the motivation I needed to get back on track with Spark.

I am always looking to meet new people so feel free to contact me!

    Oh a vacation sounds good even though i'm on summer vacation! But i've been crazy busy! So far i've been on track for 2 days. I just started back:) I did the hcg twice and lost 24lbs this way and now I just want to finish the right way! My summer has been crazy busy but fun good and no stress!!!! So i'm excited to be back now if I can just continue to log on each night when school starts back will be a completely different story!
