I am 27 years old, I have been married 3 years to the love of my life, and we have a beautiful two-year-old daughter. I work fulltime as an office manager, and I am also a Thirty-One Gifts consultant & Origami Owl Designer. This is the first time I have logged on to Spark People in a long time. I lost 30 pounds a few years ago, and Spark People was one of the major reasons why. I held myself accountable.

I have gotten to a point now where my weight and body are affecting my happiness. I started a group weight loss challenge on January 7th, 2013. It ends on March 18th (though I suspect I will have a lot more work left to do when the challenge ends!) I am using the MyFitnessPal app to track calories, and using my FitBit to track steps/floors climbed. Just trying to be really conscious of what goes into my body. The hardest part for me is STICKING WITH IT, and not falling off the wagon. I have tried so many times, but after the first week just give up. It's time to make a change, and that will take time and effort. Wish me luck.

Here are some of my Milestone Rewards:
-20 Pounds Lost: jojo loves you Peach Bling Earrings!
-30 Pounds Lost: Victoria's Secret Boyfriend Sweats
-40 Pounds Lost: A New Outfit
-50 Pounds Lost: A New Bikini!

Wish me luck, I haven't had a good track record with motivation and commitment in weight loss the past few years. It's time.
