My name is Mary. I first started my journey on (a sister site of SP). I was then directed to come here after desperately seeking a way to lose baby weight and prebaby weight. This company has truely transformed my life!

After the birth of my first son I began working on setting my new family up for a healthy life. I used a lot of information on this site to learn about what to (and not to) feed my growing boy. Just as the ball was rolling.... Back to I went with baby #2! My second son was born and back to SP I bounced.

Life was great! Thanks to SP I ran a half marathon! I had the confidence to go back to school! Wonderful things were happening and I started to think "this is it! This is life." and..... Uh oh!!! Back to I went! LOL

My daughter was a very unexpected surprise. I stressed about finishing school and raising a healthy family and trying to stay healthy myself. The weight of the world was upon me and I knew a few things had to go. Being a mom, of course I sacrifced my time working out and being active on SP. I was on hiatus.

Well, if this story has griped you enough to continue reading, I FINISHED school! I am a COTA/L or certified occupational therapy assistant. I absolutely love my job!

I can truely and whole heartedly say that if it werent fo SP, my life wouldnt be where it is today. I have 3 beautiful children (check out those pic, no denying their awesomeness!), completed 2 half marathons (no that doesnt make it a whole one!), countless 5k's, earned a degree, and inspired others around me to make a change. I feel my life is complete! I still have some pounds to get off but have NO DOUBT in my mind that there is NOTHING that can or will stop me now, after all look at how far I've come!

I could never say thank you enough to the staff at SP. Its a hometown company (Cincinnati what what!!)that has given me the tools and confidence to believe in myself. I am forever in debted to you (and probably student loans! lol) and would love to repay you in some way.

p.s. I am not proof reading this so SORRY! lol maybe one day I will have more confidence in my grammatical abilities thanks to SP ;)

P.s.s. Did you know that I met, and now can say I know, one of THE Sparkpeople employees?!? Thats next to royaty in my books.... actually better! Hi TIM!

    A Poem of Hope
    by Helena Fehr

    I feel the arms of God around me,
    as I lay on my bed at night.
    Asleep, I feel the Angel's touch-
    I'm surrounded and held tight.

    More go to:

    I will tell you a true story that happen several years ago.
    I had a dear friend, who was in a bad car accident.
    she was in the Intensive Care Unit and I could not go to her.
    I cried out to God for help!
    I ask Him to give her a Hug and touch her body.
    He gave me a Hug.
    Yes! God gave me the best holy loving hug of my life.
    I am a happy married wife of a great husband but I have never had that much love in a hug before.
    If i had died that minute it would have been OK!
    To be so loved it beyond any words. John 3:15-20

    May the Lord wrap you in His love and bless you today! jenny

    I was remembering the suggestion you gave me about Greek yogurt, so I wanted to stop by & say Hi! Sounds like everything is going in your favor - good luck & will be glad when you are back. Thanks for staying positive; your family is lucky to have you & share in your ideals!
