I will have my 6 year Sparkiversary in June 2018.

My Spark Journey: I found Spark People in June 2012 and started by eating better, followed by adding in a workout plan in September 2012. Overall I lost 30 pounds over the course of the next year (Sept. 2013). I continued to keep the weight off but due to until I started to have foot problems in May 2014. On November 3, 2014 I had serious foot surgery, and throughout the process before and after surgery I gained back the 30 pounds I had lost and gained even more. I was getting back into my fitness routine in the fall of 2015, but then I fell down the stairs on Thanksgiving 2015 so had a broken toe and cracked metatarsal.

My 2017 started really strong and I lost about 6 lbs. Then in March I started having debilitating migraines and headaches, I wasn't active at all from March through May. I saw a neurologist and started taking medication to lessen the migraines.
In the fall of 2017, I tried Noom to jumpstart my way back into healthy eating and exercising. From August to December I was doing well, I started that process at 200 lbs and was down to about 187. The migraines came back in October and November and I switched medications on December 11, I am starting to feel better and get back into my healthy living routine. I’ve dumped Noom, not because it was ineffective, it just didn’t help to keep me as motivated as SparkPoeple.

I am back and ready for the 30 pounds + of weight loss just like I experienced in 2012-13, but even more than that, I look forward to feeling healthy again!
