I joined SP in 2007. I was 'obese' and reached my weight goal - 125 lbs and 22% body fat in 2008.

I counted my calories daily with the SP FOOD TRACKER, found MOTIVATION in SP ARTICLES and various SP EXERCISE GROUPS.

I RAN, SWAM, BIKED (I have a pair of Triathlons under my belt), I learned MARTIAL ARTS, did YOGA and STRENTGH TRAINING with Coach Nicole and Jillian Michaels DVDs.

After a few rides up and down the weight-roller-coaster-ride (some calls it the 'YO-YO' Syndrome) I am now back to SP with different goals.

I want to be able to install myself into a routine I can realistically maintain and enjoy over the years, instead of intense quick temporary fixes that left me injured and frustrated in the past.

Right now, I enjoy HIKING with my family, SWIMMING in summer, SNOW SHOEING in winter, indoor/outdoor BIKING and ICE SKATING.
