In HIM all things are possible.....

Mottos to Live by:

Those who believe they can do something are probably right and so are those who believe they can't

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results

A woman who wants something will find a way; a woman who doesn't will find an excuse.

I am 38 and I am starting to feel better than ever! This is my 3rd go with Spark People since 2009. I love Spark People, it has been so helpful for my journey in weight loss. Back in the summer of 2009, I was diagnosed with asthma, come to find out it has been a lifelong problem. Well, since being treated for it I can say that I enjoy exercise and can workout harder than ever before. This is so exciting and new for me! Especially since I often missed out on sports and having fun while growing up. It was just too painful on my lungs. Unfortunately, I didn't exert myself enough to tell my parents I needed help. Obviously that habit continued up until 2009! I wish I could turn back time and been treated much earlier but I can't so I move forward.
I believe my biggest motivation are my beautiful daughters, whom I want more than anything to be happy and healthy. So, we want to lead by example both my husband (PASSHR) and I to show them what a healthy lifestyle looks like. I am enjoying every minute of it, this new me and how I am transforming every week is amazing! I have never had this kind of success or drive ever!! Thanks to Spark People, it's members and all it has to offer - YOU CAN DO IT!!

    And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end
