I have joined the Winter 5% challenge as a returning Champions in the Kitchen. It is one of the most supporting teams and I am a proud member.

I love this team. They have inspired me to walk more, be more active with my goals. Looking forward to the Spring challenges!

I want to be reach my goals and watch my health improve as I do so with the support of all my friends.

I was introduced to Spark's quite awhile back but I am now looking forward to being more active and to keep small attainable goals to start with during this Winter.

I will be listening to my body as I do have some chronic pain in both of my shoulders after using them for so many years lifting heavy items for my work as a cook years ago.

This past Fall I began to have some back pain and pain in my left knee. I do not want any further injuries. I want to take care of me for me! I am going to reach my goals as I have value and I am worth it!

I wish everyone the best in reaching their goals as well. We all can do it together!
