Welcome to my space! My name is Pam and I live in the NW Florida Panhandle. I am on a journey to take back my health by learning to eat right and exercising. I refuse to "diet" again. When I began to use Spark seriously in Jan. 2011, (signed up in 2009 but didn't really try) I needed to lose 100 lbs. and I wanted to become healthier. My first goal was to lose 50 lbs. (succeeded!!) I have read about 15 books on Nutrition NOT dieting. I have learned so much since that first day. I now fuel my body everyday instead of starving it! I actually enjoy exercising. I still have to work on my consistency with workouts though. My next goal is to lose the last 50 in the next year. I look forward to this life changing journey and making friends along the way!
My 2014 Motto- ""Give it over to God"

My 2013 Motto- "Take Care Of Yourself FIRST"

My 2012 Motto- "Begin Every Plate With A Clean Slate."
