I am out here on my health journey. It hasn't been a straight line more similar to two steps forward, ! step back. But you know, its working.
Al least I can turn and look behind me to see how far I have come!
And I can look forward to continuing improvement. What is not to like about that?!

My Goals:
Goal 1: Make a permanent lifestyle change.
Goal 2: Lose weight and exercise until I am truly fit.

My Program:
I logged on in 2013 and did not use the program. I started serious weight loss and lifestyle change this September (2014). I am following the program to a T. Reading everything I can on the website to learn. I joined Spark Coach to keep me motivated and moving forward (accountability). I check nutrition daily. Then take supplements if necessary. Joined a gym to tone up as I lose additional weight.
Exercise at home daily. Read about others whose success and struggles are greater than mine to motivate me.

Personal Information:
I was born with a bicuspid heart valve. My surgery in 1999 went perfect but hospital error killed me (accidently) but God kept me here. In July 2014 I went to the Cleveland Clinic for a retification of the valve that was damaged. It is a dream come true for me. I can now exercise and have no limits to becoming as fit as I want to be. This is a gift from God. I still have heart issues but solutions are already on there way due to the hard work and dedication of others. I am grateful everyday for this opportunity to become the healthiest possible and living a fuller life than I ever imagined. I was given an opportunity to start living a better life, I am not going to waste it.
