Over the past few years, I've encountered stumbling blocks on my weight-loss journey, but my Spark buddies have kept me motivated through the thick and thin.

For the past two years, a long commute prevented me from exercising or planning meals to the extent that I need to in order to lose (or even maintain) weight. Now I am working close to home and am seeing progress toward my health goals again.

My current routine means making a DAILY choice to eat well and to exercise. I know only too well that "just one day" is a slippery slope for me, just like "just one drink" is to a recovering alcoholic.
