02/22/10 - The day I found the spark.

Hi! I'm a 24 year old living in the LA/OC county area. I moved out here in April of '09 ALL the way from Maine. I'll always be a Mainer at heart, but I sure love the sunshine out here. :)

I've always been the "fat girl." During my last two years of high school I made it my goal to join the Navy and lost 70 pounds, bringing myself at that time down to 180 pounds. This is the skinniest I could remember myself being. I ran...A LOT! The problem with all of it though, was I was relying on a low carb diet, and as soon as I came off of it all of the weight came back. I also had a huge support system, and as soon as I went off to college and none of those people were right there with me, I lost all motivation and gained it all back, plus some. (On a sidenote, I never did join the military)

This time, rather than simply wanting to "be skinny," I'm wanting to be healthy for life.

I can do this with spark!!
