I had my wake up call in January of 2010 and realized my own personal responsibility to take care of my health and my body. I utilize broadcast and cable television, on-demand programming, Netflix and the internet to learn new information and further my knowledge of how to find success within myself and my journey for lifelong changes that help me take care of ME.

Member Since: 3/28/2010

Fitness Minutes: 19,517

My Goals:
I make it a goal to treat myself with the kindness, respect, dignity, joy, support, forgiveness and encouragement I would anyone else embarking on a journey to figure out their personal journey to lose weight, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and keep it off long term.

A successful routine must taste good, heal and energize me, be fun, and make me feel amazing with constant endorphins. If it doesn't; I'm not doing it right. =)

My Program:
I keep an open mind to information from all sources, but know that my routine will be unique to me as everything about me is unique: biology; financial, economic, life responsibilities, stress, coping skills, happiness, bed quality, water consumption, previous yo-yo dieting (metabolic efficiency), etc.

I know that to succeed I need to analyze, change, update, swap, revise, repeat routine all the time and make sure I'm reinforcing what works and not letting it slip from my routine.

Personal Information:
Every minute is a learning experience.

I'm incredibly competitive. I'm an entrepreneur. I like to win. I ran Biggest Loser Challenge groups for two years until 2013. We won weekly challenges - a lot. I perfected a structure and formula that really worked and we won the whole shebang. I left here 807 days ago to make some major shifts in our life. I got rid of all of my stuff. I renovated an RV. My husband and I moved from MD to CA to run a business where we are founding investors and Board Members, and the CEO is my husband's best friend from childhood. We now have our other businesses operating out of there as well.

Other Information:
In my time away from Spark I've definitely put on weight, and physically I'm not in the shape I was. I miss having a strong core. I miss my correct posture and movement structure. I've been thinking about doing something for a few weeks now. I need it. Today I came to Spark and here the challenge is starting now. So I joined! Can't wait to see what team I'm on.....

    Another feisty tiger snowball is headed your way. A little extra pre new year burn. Time to tackle 3 sets of 12 squats with a 5 pound weight or resistance band.

    Let's earn our extra treats.
