Hi! I'm Lisa. I thought it was time to update my SparkPage. I'm back after not being on here for quite a while. It's time to get back in gear though. I have a long way to go in my weight loss journey, but I know with the support of the wonderful members of SP I know I can do it.

A lot of changes have happened in the past few years, like moving from Illinois to Wisconsin. I feel ready to make a healthy lifestyle change for myself.

My Program:
I want to make it a point to pay attention to everything I eat, followed by tweaking it to eat better.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Oak Forest, Illinois. I moved to Wisconsin a couple of years ago.

    Good for you! I am happy to report that I am a reformed Pepsi addict. 4 to 5 twelve ounce cans a was my normal day 15 years ago. Now it's more like one every month or two, but only when there's nothing else available. I must admit that it is the one choice I made that, though difficult at first, changed my life for the better forever since.

    When I shared this information with my son in law a few years ago, he put it to the test himself and gave up soda too. He lost 20 pounds really quickly just by ditching the soda and taking a walk around the block with the kids every day for 2 months. He was able to pass his PT test with the military with this little tip, and he is forever grateful.

    May you discover that you no longer like it when you have it again, Amen.
