Welcome to my SparkPeople Page! I'm sharing my journey toward great health as a way to keep motivated, honor my commitments, celebrate my wins and track my progress. I appreciate encouragement and wisdom from your experience of losing weight and getting healthy. Rather than big, lofty steps, I'm going for smaller, more consistent changes. Sudden changes, or huge goals have not worked. So trying a new path--and learning new things in the process. Thanks for visiting!

Personal Information:
My most consistent commitment is to my personal and spiritual growth. I value understanding myself and bringing out my potentials. I made health and well-being a priority this year as a way to break through my limiting beliefs about my weight, how strong I can be, how well I can feel, how I can fit into beautiful clothes.

I want to finally reach 130 lbs., settle on a long-term nutritional plan, and be strong so I can travel easily and widely.

Other Information:
Your daily life is your temple and your religion.

How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.
