I started using spark in 2011 even though I signed up in 2010. I began at 197 lbs. I also faced a meniscus tear in a knee that was repaired successfully. This SCARED me into putting my health first. I was terrified of immobility.
I reached 140 lb. goal by my weigh in on January 31st/
LATEST UPDATE: I reached my goal weight of 135 lbs. by my 60th milestone. (August 21, 2016.)

Since then I am in maintenance mode.(55 pounds kept off, still working on getting the last 10 which was a gain this year gone.) Keeping my MOVEMENT consistent, challenging myself to reach FURTHER outside of my comfort zone, & be aware of the food choices & portions I eat are a combined part of my healthy living EVERY day...Living, laughing & LOVING LIFE is the BEST benefit this journey has given me. Reach for your DREAMS...they are attainable!!!!

    A wish for you on this Valentine's Day
    that you'll take time to laugh and maybe to play,
    just bury the blues, let go your worries
    do something happy and giggle in flurries,
    run in the forest, hug a small child
    grin at the clouds and do something wild,
    just for this day be perfectly free
    for that is the way you were meant to be,
    watch how your magic blossoms in wonder
    as lightning flashes in evening thunder,
    and know in your heart come what may
    I send you my blessings this Valentine's Day.

    Happy Valentines Day my friend!
