I am a long time sparker but fell off the wagon last year. I lost 40lbs a year and a half ago using spark (1lb short of onederland) but gained it all back. I am rededicating myself to my weight-loss journey and December 20, 2017 is the last time I am ever going to be 240 lbs (5'9)!

I am going to stick to the tried and true plan that I used last time.
-Track everything I eat (aim for 1500-1700 calories per day)
-Go to the gym as much as I can while being realistic in my workouts (4-6 days per week)
-Take advantage of challenges
-Stay active in the spark community
-When I make a mistake or eat something I shouldn't, don't just write off the whole day. Move on and keep doing my best!

***Update***

Swimming has become my passion. An hour in the pool beats an hour on the treadmill in my books :) That's where you can find me 5-6 days a week!

Let's do this spark friends!!!

Personal Information:
My name is Carli and I am from Ontario, Canada. I am a mom of 2 (5 and 7) and have been married for 9 years. I was a very active and thin child as a competitive dancer. I slowly started gaining weight after I stopped dancing in my late teens but really put on the bulk of the weight with my first son. He was a very sick little baby in my tummy. I was in the hospital for most of my pregnancy and was encouraged to gain a lot of weight very quickly so he would gain as well. I gained 60lbs in two months. I added more weight with the birth of my daughter two years later and have been in the obese category ever since.

I successfully lost 40lbs a year and a half ago with spark. I was 1lb shy of hitting onderland and I just gave up. I remember the exact moment I gave up. I was eating pizza and decided two slices was not going to do it (as I had tracked) and continued to eat 6. From there I snowballed and gained all the weight back. I don't want to make that mistake again.


Other Information:
My workout plan:
Gym 4-6 days per week
Swimming is my jam - 60 minutes per day when possible
Daily planking/squats
Go for a walk on lunches whenever possible
