Hi! My name is Donde. I reached my 12th Spark anniversary on January 19, 2020! ! It has been an incredible journey! I would like to say that maintenance has been an easy thing, but there has been a lot of twists and turns a long the way! If it wasn't for this wonderful website, I don't think I would have come out of my discouragement about my weight and being healthy! I lost my Father 22 years ago this last Father's Day to a heart attack! He had issues with high cholesterol due to bad eating habits as he grew up. He was not only my Father, but my best friend! When I lost him, a part of me died inside! I think that part had been gone for a long time! Then came my wonderful husband Todd who lifted me up, believed in me no matter what my past faults were and continues to love me today! My son Joshua who God has blessed me with for a short time on this earth! I will continue to run for a great prize because God gave me this one body, and he wants us to take care of it so that we can take care of others! Thanks so much Spark People for everything and to all of my incredible friends on here who keep me accountable and lift me up when I need encouragement! Amen!

My Goals:
I would like to say that I have kept the weight off over the last year, but the truth is, I got lazy and started to think I was untouchable when it comes to weight gain! My goal is to get back on track in 2020 by eating smarter and getting my weight back down to 136 where it should be! I don't have much trouble in the area of working out, but I have problems with eating in the evening and my goal is to try and be more mindful of that this year! I had gotten back up to 152 lbs which is definitely not where I want to be! Also, I would like to get better with push-ups and build more strength in my arms!

My Program:
I recently saw this website for Active Burn ! It has so many great workouts especially if your looking to take it to the next level! Also, when you sign up you can get a personal couch to help you with your goals! She has been great! My hope is that ramping up my workouts and continuing to eat healthy will help me get back to my healthy weight!

Personal Information:
I am from Illinois. I turned 49 years old this last July and I have a 20 year old son who has been attending the University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana. He just finished his first semester of his second year and has been doing a great job with his grades! This second year I am not quite so sad when he leaves to go back to school because I've been through a year and I now he is ok. ! I have three wonderful Grandchildren Kellan, Grayden and Cecilia who I absolutely adore! The most important thing I have is a strong faith in God and I believe he leads us where he needs us to be and I feel that right here on Spark People is where I feel right at home! Who could ask for more!

Other Information:
I just believe that if you have a strong enough faith in God, you can accomplish anything!

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
