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

[Philippians 4:13]

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!

    Hi....welcome back to SPARKS. Though I am 65, I remember struggling (after each of my daughters were born), to shed those pregnancy pounds. After every pregnancy the weight seemed more difficult to shed, too. We didn't have the diet support that is available now. How fortunate you are to have this site. Eventually, between following the Sparks program and chasing your children, you will be a new and improved woman!!!!

    I am also a member of the Sparked In The Quad Cities team, so we should be communicating with each other more often.
