Hi and welcome! I've gone up and down with my weight for most of my adult life and have lost and regained over three hundred pounds collectively. In 2012, I was in a good place, worked out consistently, lost seventy pounds and completed a half marathon which never in my wildest dream would I have thought possible. I was also nine pounds short of being at a healthy weight (which I haven't seen since my late teens), and at my strongest and healthiest than I've ever been. As time went on my old ways set back in again. I don't know if it was out of laziness, complacency, over confidence or all of the above but I gained the weight back and lost my stamina and muscle condition too. Hopefully with the support of SparkPeople I'll regain my determination, commitment and focus to be in the best shape possible. Thanks for stopping by and best wishes for a successful and rewarding journey.

    Hi Kepsi,
    WELCOME to the Rowdy Rebels & happy you are on the team again. You are a big asset to the team with all your motivating and inspiring posts. I always enjoy them. I’m recovering from a fall that injured my knees and back and getting better with every passing day. Want to get back to my walking exercise as soon as I can.

    So, get ready to board the plane and take off on Saturday, July 4th. Be sure to put your starting weight on your team weigh-in page.

    Let’s start this challenge with a bang & make some fireworks as we get ready to celebrate July 4th! I’m ready for this challenge to start & hope you are, too...Together we can do this! GO REBELS!
