Why I started and Why I won't quit....

Tuesday, February 05, 2019

Oh boy, thought I had copied and pasted this yesterday but guess i forgot.....

I started on Spark in 2007 ..... I've been here ever since sometimes more active then others.

I started my journey to lose weight and get in shape. I did well the first year here and lost 30 lbs which i kept off for about 7 years. Then life got in the way as it sometimes does. I gained back almost all of it and am determined to lose it and more this time.

I'm doing this to be healthy and fit and not to fit into a certain size. I want to set an example for my family and also to be independent and not dependent on anyone as I age. I want to be able to climb stairs, run a 5K (if I want), and move through life with a sense of purpose and determination to be the best me there is.

I'm not going to quit because my health and well-being are worth the effort.

The SparkFriends I've made here are so welcoming, motivating and supportive; helping each other along the way on our journeys.
