Hi, My name is Michaele a competitive figure skater . I have lost 45 lbs over the time span of a few years which was reallly hard work that I wouldn't give up on. I joined this site in December 2007. With my passion for figure skating, running and support from friends and family & using Spark people
I have found how important it is to put your needs first ,make an effort to make time for fitness and stick to it to live the healthy life style everyday, not just " go on a diet" . Fit for life

Five years over weight has taught me a lot but I will never go back. It's important to move on and make a difference. Work hard on one goal at a time.

Today I am on the road to fitness.
I am feeling thinner today.
I'm losing weight now.
I look and feel lighter today.
I'm enjoying how I'm feeling now.
I love the feeling of making progress.
I love the food that makes me thin.
Losing weight is effortless.
I am going to fit into the next size smaller any minute.
I enjoy being healthy.
I'm making things easy for myself now.
My body is getting stronger, slimmer, and healthier every day.
I feel so thin inside, my outer is just about to catch up.
I love to challenge myself.
I deserve the best.

2013 will be the year of getting stronger, happier and moving forward !!

    Hey there! I was just looking through my last 2 blogs here (written 3 years ago...GAH!) and noticed your kind comments on them! SO I came by your page to see if you are still around. I am trying to find my groove here on Spark again. Thanks for your support in the past and and if you are still around, hope we can continue to support each other! I now have 40 pounds to lose. Pains me to write that, but it is what it is. :)
