2018 Update - I reached my goal weight November 25, 2012. Most of 2017 I hovered just above goal weight but I didn't stress. I continued to maintain my healthy habits.

2018 called for some adjustments. I went through PT for a strained periformis and rediscovered the importance of regular strength training, falling in love with dreaded lunges and glute work along with other muscle groups.

I do not define myself by the scale. It's not about being skinny for me. It's about strength and endurance now.

I believe in baby steps to achieve goals and maintain lifelong healthy habits.

I look forward to continue learning from Spark friends and staying active in 2019!
