Hey y'all! I started a new Spark account because I have a different name now and I wanted a completely fresh start. I've been doing Weight Watchers, but I really wanted to see the amount of calories I was eating, so I'm back on Spark People.
I was a competitive swimmer from age 9 until the summer after I graduated from high school at 18. I was also a lifeguard from age 16 until the summer after I graduated from college at age 23. After a few years of lifeguarding, I was promoted to lifeguard trainer and assistant manager. So, I've been a pool rat most of my life.
I was a direct commission to the Air Force after nursing school, and I am stationed at Eglin AFB in Florida. I had to lose 30 lbs to join the Air Force, but I've gained it all back!! You would think I would continue swimming, especially since I live in Florida where it is summer more months than not! I have not been swimming laps since college. It has been about 2 years. Now I've gained weight and need to get it off. It's too hot to run, so I plan to swim!!
