I have been sparking off & on for almost 8 years (in March). When I first started spark, and used the tools and resources provided, I had great results! I lost 30 lbs, and I discovered that I loved to work out! I was even able to complete 3 5k races something that at 1 time I could have only dreamed of doing.

Eventually I hit a plateau & maintained my weight for quite a while, until a couple years ago. I managed to gain back everything that I had lost & then some! I found myself at my highest weight ever, and was absolutely miserable. I became depressed & just did not care about my health. Besides taking care of everyone else around you is always a priority.

Now things seemed to have settled down a bit, it's FINALLY time to focus on ME again. MY health will NOW be a priority for ME! This time I WILL reach my goals. and I WILL do what I need to do to achieve success. I have decided that enough is enough! I am determined to do it this time. I am tired of starting over. I am tired of giving up. I am tired of feeling like a failure. I want to get in my closet and not worry if this is too tight or if I can get those zipped. I want to be happy. I want to be healthy, and feel good about myself. I want find my inner spark again! I want to shine! But most of all I want to LOVE ME! So LOOK OUT Y'ALL changes are a comin' & 2020 is going to be the year for ME!

    I have had a similar journey--lost 34 pounds, gained it all back and then some. I am now down 73 pounds to my goal weight. My point is--having had the setback, it made me more determined to NOT repeat my mistakes. I believe you can do it, too! Just take it one day at a time and you will get there.

    It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don't give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful! -Steve Maraboli

    Isn't it silly to let an inanimate object determine how happy you'll be today?
