I have been sparking off & on for almost 8 years (in March). When I first started spark, and used the tools and resources provided, I had great results! I lost 30 lbs, and I discovered that I loved to work out! I was even able to complete 3 5k races something that at 1 time I could have only dreamed of doing.

Eventually I hit a plateau & maintained my weight for quite a while, until a couple years ago. I managed to gain back everything that I had lost & then some! I found myself at my highest weight ever, and was absolutely miserable. I became depressed & just did not care about my health. Besides taking care of everyone else around you is always a priority.

Now things seemed to have settled down a bit, it's FINALLY time to focus on ME again. MY health will NOW be a priority for ME! This time I WILL reach my goals. and I WILL do what I need to do to achieve success. I have decided that enough is enough! I am determined to do it this time. I am tired of starting over. I am tired of giving up. I am tired of feeling like a failure. I want to get in my closet and not worry if this is too tight or if I can get those zipped. I want to be happy. I want to be healthy, and feel good about myself. I want find my inner spark again! I want to shine! But most of all I want to LOVE ME! So LOOK OUT Y'ALL changes are a comin' & 2020 is going to be the year for ME!
