Hi, my name is Beth and I'm a Florida transplant from Wisconsin. Since moving to Florida, I've gained back more weight than I care to admit. However I've been successful with weight loss before and I can do it again, I know I just need to stick with it! My goal is to lose all that I gained (and then some) over the next 2 years. Some background... When I first joined Spark I lost 60 pounds in 8 months. Why I strayed I don't remember because it was so long ago. Then in 2009 I had gastric bypass. I lost 155 pounds. I felt I did well with it; I kept the weight off for 6 years. But then once I moved to Florida I gained quite a bit of weight back. So here I am again and I'm determined to lose it for life!! Spark helped me lose weight before so I know I can lose it again! I know I can do this and I'll never stop trying!! A little more about me...I'm originally from Green Bay, WI and now I live in south Florida. Zumba and swimming are my favorite forms of exercise so I plan to incorporate those.

    "And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about."―Haruki Murakami
