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.
