When I started Spark in 2011, I never thought I would get back into running but that's what I did. I ran a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon. I lost the 10 pounds I wanted to lose and I was feeling great about myself. Then, I lost my job. Looking for employment was not as easy as I hoped it would be. I started taking on temp assignments, financially I was declining rapidly. By 2012 I was eating more and more and exercising less and less. To make a long story short, I gained back 9 out of the 10 pounds I lost. I'm still looking for work, but I am determined to get back on my exercise regimen and stay connected to Spark.

I may give up temporarily to rethink options and rebuild my focus but I always return to what worked and Spark worked for me, so I know with determination and commitment, it will work for me again.

    THANK YOU so much for the Goodie and wonderful words of support. Before I actually started marathon training I was really nervous about it and now that I am doing it, everything feels so right. Stay tuned!

    Thank you so much for stopping by my page and giving me such wonderful compliments as well as encouragment. Every time a runner stops by my page and says something to me I am greatly encouraged and it just gives me more to shoot for in my newfound "like"(can't say I love it just yet) of running!! :)

    Thank you for the sparkgoodie! :) believe it or not, those are not recent pictures... Those are from success a couple years ago. I had put almost all the weight back on and have had to relose it....I have surpassed the previous low weight by about five pounds.
