It all started in 2012 when I stumbled upon this site, I was amazed but I didn't come out the gate running, I lagged but the support of SparkPeople inspired me into action. Slowly, I became more active then progressed into a beast losing 70+ pounds with no aids of any kind. Fast forward to now : I've gained some of it back but I also gained so much knowledge and insight about myself. I've learned my strengths and weaknesses so now I'm fully armed with the tools to succeed completely this time. God is good indeed. Onward & upward. I'll update this page as necessary but I have work to do.

Member Since: 5/8/2012

Fitness Minutes: 164,992

My Goals:
Perseverance is my motivation. I'm allowing Active Annie full control of my fitness : 70 minutes cardio ; 60 minutes of other activities ( strength training, yoga, resistance training, pilates, kickboxing or cross fit ). Overall, I'm seeking progress not perfection.

My Program:
Eat according to my meal plan. Exercise 5-6 days every week, no exceptions. Drink more water and track every drop. Journal most days. Remain positive and enjoy every moment. To continue loving me just as I am and to understand that things don't always go according to plan.

Personal Information:
I stepped back, looked at myself and now I have me all figured out. I discovered my calorie and fitness needs through so much trial and error, I'm ready to apply it .

Other Information:
I believe that drive, focus desire & determination are the keys to success once you get your mind on board.
I SURVIVED a sugar addiction and now I have the control because God is able Who enables me, I'm so grateful & thankful :-)

    In every culture throughout time there have been saints, mystics, sages, shamans and prophets who have come to the same conclusion: all things in this world are deeply interconnected and ultimately are only diverse expressions of the one original source energy. Dr. Jonathan Ellerby

    Watch the words that come out of your mouth as well as the ones you keep to yourself. Filling your mind w/.negativity and spreading it w/the words you speak is detrimental to your well being. Julie Murphy Casserly

    We all have the power to change ourselves and the world. As difficult as this seems @ times, we do command the power of our thoughts and feelings; this creates the energy that guides our lives. Becky Chambers
