I had something really neat happen to me recently! My gym asked if I would be in their fitness column in our base newspaper (NAS Corpus Christi). I am sooo honored. It really meant a lot to me. ❤️ inspire and be inspired.

January 2019

Hi Sparkfriends! Welcome!

I’ve been on Sparkpeople for over 9 years now. I'm almost 51 years old. Like many of you, I have been through wildly varying health stages through out my lifetime. I've been average, I've been heavy, and I've been underweight. I've been a size 16. I've been a size 0, and everything in between. I used to be a chain smoker, and also very ill with respiratory issues.

Not anymore. I am now a runner. I am a lifter. I am becoming a rider. I am a 9+ year non smoker.

Today, I would describe myself as a fit athlete. I have a much different body composition from what I had from any other time in my life and I credit it to consistent lifting and fine tuning nutrition.

I share because I want to inspire others to believe they can do anything they put their mind to. It’s never to late to dream a new dream.

Keep Sparking!
