The ROCKIN' RED FOXES BLC TEAM FAMILY
my SERIOUS SISTERS
& SPARKPEOPLE are saving my life.

My journey with SparkPeople began in May 2009 when I weighed somewhere around (more than but the scale didn't go that high) 475+ pounds. Thanks to water aerobics & swimming, I am healthier today than I have been in years. I not only participate but I teach WA & swim classes daily. Exercise in the water is the BEST way for me to lose weight & stay healthy without too much pain.

On July 23, 2018 I began a KETO lifestyle. I'm working on my emotional eating issues with a therapist and EATING to LIVE instead of living to eat. I feel better than I have in years. One day at a time, my life is changing for the better

I am PASSIONATE about leading the ROCKIN' RED FOXES BLC team FAMILY.
.
I am also involved in an awesome private Spark Team that helps me with my program. The team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends It is a "friendship" team that provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

ROCK ON.... ROCKIN' RED FOXES
