I am the mother of 3 little guys and a wife to my very best friend. I am also a behavior specialist and currently going to school full time! That being said, I have not had a lot of time to spend on my own fact, I have pushed myself back and the food to the front. Why? My excuse has been time, I don't have time to eat healthy! It is easier to eat this way, I have had a looong day, so I will treat myself to a big bowl of ice-cream. The operative word there was EXCUSE! Time to throw the excuses away! Time to commit to eating healthy and getting my family healthy at the same time. All fires start with a spark. My spark is to drink 8 glasses of water each day, exercise 3 days a week, and journal each day! Can't wait to start!

    I am so excited for your 45lb loss! You are so awesome and inspiring!

    I just read your updated info on your sparkpage.... you're doing great! Not only have you learned a lot, but you've inspired many other people-- like me-- to do the same! And a marathon!? WOW!!!! When you become a Zumba instructor, if you were nearby, I'd surely come to your class! Go Michelle! emoticon
