Hi, my name is Beth. I lived in Florida for 3 years, I moved there for my ex-husband. Unfortunately, the marriage was very toxic and bad for me, so I moved back home to Wisconsin and my divorce was finalized in January 2020. I’m the happiest I've been in a very long time! Since I moved to Florida, I've gained back more weight than I care to admit, mostly due to the stress of my marriage. However I've been successful with weight loss before and I can do it again, I know I just need to stick with it! My goal is to lose all that I gained in 2020. Some background... When I first joined Spark I lost 60 pounds in 8 months. Why I strayed I don't remember because it was so long ago. Then in 2009 I had gastric bypass. I lost 155 pounds. I felt I did well with it; I kept the weight off for 6 years. But then once I moved to Florida I gained quite a bit of weight back. So here I am again and I'm determined to lose it for life!! Spark helped me lose weight before so I know I can lose it again! I know I can do this and I'll never stop trying!! A little more about me...I'm from Green Bay, WI. Zumba and swimming are my favorite forms of exercise so I plan to incorporate those.

    Bethie Girl - - I just caught up on your blogs and want you to know that I have missed you much and am glad you're back!! We all have tough times, and I'm glad you're making it through yours - - we ARE here to support you. I'm sorry you've felt bad about keeping us uptodate. I do understand how you felt about getting back with sparkpeople, but certainly we are not a group that can fault anyone else for some "not so great" life choices!! We're all got to this point somehow!! And we're all going to get out of it together with each others' help!! So, cheers to you!! You're still an inspiration!
