I'm ready to start the Biggest Loser Swing Into Spring (Team Pink Flamingos) challenge! Can ya tell? lol

I'm renewing my commitment to myself these past two months. My life has changed so drastically since I was here years ago, and I find myself in a place where I can concentrate on being healthy & fit. I've married a beautiful man who treats me daily with love & respect. I've left my job & moved states after marriage, had 2 surgeries on my back & neck, and become an empty-nester of 5 (whose youngest has since returned after graduating college). I also quit smoking June 1, 2014.

I am blessed beyond measure. All things in my life have improved & i am happy. I do still struggle with depression & anxiety, but those, too, are so much better & I'm grateful for good meds & a great therapist. One of my battles right now is that the meds cause weight gain, so I'm going to get this under control with your help. One small step at a time. Happy Sparking!
