I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!

I successfully completed my first week (in a loooong time) of healthy eating and daily exercising; and decided maybe it is time I give blogging a try.
I started my Spark journey May 28th, 2008, and five months later on Halloween, I had lost 40lbs. From low self-esteem struggling to squeeze into a size 14, I was confidently wearing a size 2. It completely changed my life. Having managed to control my weight helped me to focus better on my life and goals.
And now, five years and a baby later... I am right back to where I had started. Life as a mom of two -- stylist/chauffeur/personal assistant/Girl Scout Leader for my daughter (born Sept 2005) and primary care-giver to my son (born June 2011) I have grown "comfortable" -- otherwise known as lazy. And while my husband loves me just the way I am, I know it is time to get healthy. I am overdue to lose this baby weight, and I'm not getting any younger.
It is going to be harder this time, I know. Thankfully, this time, I am not on my own. This time, I am relying on the strength of Jesus to get me through work-outs when I'm already exhausted, and I know I need His help resisting the urge to eat easy junk.
So... here I go, again! 40lbs to shed, the Sequel!
