Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Roya - I am 26 years old, live in Los Alamitos with my husband and two german shepherds, and am trying to change my lifestyle! I love to swim, plan special events and trips, knit, crochet, cross stitch and do ceramics. I am currently getting my masters in Counseling at CSULB.
The day I stepped on a scale and it said 201 pounds (I was 20 years old) I decided I needed to lose weight. I lost 50 pounds on my own, but have gained back 25. I realize now I need community - which is why I am here on sparkpeople! I am learning the definition of success - doing a few good habits every day.
