Hi everybody!! I'm Maribeth, and I'm here for motivation and inspiration in my journey to lose weight and get healthy. I've been married to a wonderful guy for 32 years, and we have one great son ,and I have a small herd of kitties and goldfish!! (And they're actually even friends!!) I wish you all the very best!!!

Hi! It's Aprill 2011, and I guess I should update. I wrote the intro above almost 5 years ago--- hard to believe. Spark people has been with me on my journey all this time! It's been a long haul, but the inspiration and motivation from all you wonderful Spark people has helped me to lose over 70 pounds. I will stay with Spark to help me continue to live my healthy lifestyle. I have read so many inspirational blogs, and I have been helped so much by hearing of other peoples experiences in the path we are all traveling to live a healthy life. I've been helped every day in so many ways by Sparkpeople and I just want to send out thanks for the difference you have made in my life.

Wow! Time flies! It's January 2013 and I've managed to maintain my weight loss. I still check Spark People daily for inspiration. I'm so grateful for the Spark inspiration!

Hi! Now it's July 2014! Still maintaining with the support and inspiration of the Spark Community. I still check in daily, log all my food, keep a journal, and try to be active every day. Thanks Spark People!!!

And here we are at March 2019! Still doing well. I walk 10,000 steps (almost) daily, staying with my yoga, and I have added a stretching exercise class that's really great. I try to eat a good healthy diet with few processed foods. I keep a food diary. Spark has been an inspiration for me all these years, and I still check in every morning..

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
