EVERY SINGLE THING WE DO IN A POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE WAY EFFECTS OUR HISTORY WHICH WE ARE CONSTANTLY CREATING. WE DON''T ALWAYS HAVE CONTROL OVER EVERYTHING, SO WE MUST FOCUS ON WHAT WE CAN CONTROL & CREATE SOMETHING WORTH PUTTING IN THE HISTORY BOOKS.

"I MAKE MY OWN HISTORY" AND WHEN WILL YOU DECIDE TO MAKE YOURS?!?

LONG STORY SHORT.....WELL AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE...

BEFORE I JOINED SPARK I HIT MY ALL TIME HIGH OF 205LBS. AFTER TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT ON MY OWN FOR 3 MONTHS, I FOUND SPARKPEOPLE & THE HEAVENS OPENED UP ABOVE. I JOINED SPARK ON APRIL 10, 2008 AT 200LBS. BY NOVEMBER 14, 2008 I WAS DOWN 39.5LBS AND WEIGHED IN 160.5LBS. IT TOOK A LOT OF BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS, BUT I DID IT...ON MY OWN!!

A YEAR LATER AFTER JOINING SPARK I WAS BLESSED TO BE FEATURED IN USA TODAY NEWSPAPER AND HIT A NEW LOW AT 155LBS IN APRIL 2009!

THEN LIFE TOOK OVER FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS AKA THE STRUGGLE!! BETWEEN WORK, CHANGING JOBS, MONEY BEING TIGHT, FAMILY, REALTIONSHIPS, BILLS, MOVING, HEALTH ISSUES...IT FELT LIKE I COULDN''T GET A BREAK. GOING THROUGH THE CRAZINESS OF LIFE ON TOP OF TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT WAS HARD. I GAVE UP ON MYSELF AND BEFORE I KNEW IT I WAS BACK UP THERE. I WAS BACK AT 199 LBS.

BUT IT WASN''T ALL THAT BAD BECAUSE WHEN I HIT 199LBS I FOUND OUT I WAS PREGNANT WITH THE NEW LOVE OF MY LIFE! MY SON!!!!!

NOW I HAVE A NEW PURPOSE IN LIFE. TO BE THE BEST MOM I CAN BE AND THAT INCLUDES BEING A HEALTHY MOM BECAUSE MY SON DESERVES THE BEST FROM ME!!
