Health and Happiness

It has been over two years ago, that I began this wonderful Spark adventure. I have successfully lost sixty pounds and as of the beginning of September 2011, I have been in maintenance for one year. Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. I am stepping into my future each day as I build a foundation of health and joy with a commitment to physical activities and wonderful healthy food while making connections with new Spark Friends.

This is the next great adventure in my life. I want it to be the best it can be. Join me in a celebration of life as we transform ourselves with love and gratitude into exactly who we want to be.

Felt a need to come back and thank you again. I am SO grateful for your mention of leptin!

It appears that my unwitting routine that essentially mirrors the 5 rules of the leptin diet has actually lead to improved metabolism. I don't know how else to make sense of my experience in recent months. Honestly, I'm in shock.

My current weight, nutritional intake and activity level align with that of a 29 year old woman. And, I'm far from 29!

Although my injury has not allowed me to return to running yet, my metabolism is certainly behaving like I have!

Thank you so much for your support a little while back. Tracking really did get me back on track.
