Forget about yesterday...
Do not worry about tomorrow...
Just make healthy choices TODAY.

This journey is about PERSISTENCE and PROGRESS, NOT perfection.

Update: Some of the weight crept back on so I'm working to shed those extra pounds and regain my fitness.

Hello, Sparkers! Thank you so much for visiting my Spark page! I'm Jennifer, a 46-year-old married Texan with two children and two grown step-children. My son is 6 and my daughter is 20.

I joined SP on January 1, 2011, and it has been such a wonderful experience so far. I simply LOVE this site! It is filled with wonderful, supportive people and lots of great information, resources and tools. And most of all, I love the support of my Spark friends.

My long-term goal was to lose 100 pounds so I can really enjoy my life with my husband and kids. And an unexpected turn on my journey--I became a runner and love running races! I have run multiple 5K races, a 10K, and finished my first half-marathon at the end of January 2012.

GOAL ACHIEVED! 100 pounds gone FOREVER!

    Hello Jenn,

    Just stopping by to see how you are doing.

    I hope you're having a great successful week my friend.

    Hang in there!

    You don't know me. I think you were heading out as I was just getting started. Thank you so much for all the motivation you provided me. I was able to drop 110 pounds and even began running...completing several 5Ks and ran all but 5 min of my last one. Like you, I fell off the band wagon. My inability to exercise the way I wanted to after surgery was the Jenga piece that caused the entire tower to topple. I've regained 50 pounds, but am determined that the relapse will end there. I am so very happy to see you back on SP and to watch your success again.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful SPARKER Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you might want to consider "playing it forward" and pasting it on the page of 7 other Sparkers.
