****Yes, I did change my username, so please don't let it confuse you. My old username used my initials, but everyone thought my name was Sal, so I decided to change it. It's definitely still me though :-)

So I've been on Spark for a few months now and I thought it was time to update my introduction.

My name is Stefanie and I live in Maryland. I'm married to a wonderful man and I am the mother a beautiful 9 month old baby girl. She is definitely the sunlight of my life.

I've always been a huge health and fitness buff, so after gaining 60 lbs during my pregnancy, I didn't know what to do when I was struggling to lose the last 20 lbs. Searching online, I stumbled upon the Spark website and it's been fantastic. I love the fact the I can track my diet as well as my exercises. I'm still working on losing the weight, but the support from all of my Spark Friends has been amazing. I look forward to signing on every day.

Member Since: 12/1/2011

Fitness Minutes: 5,591

My Goals:
To lose the last 20lbs of "baby weight" and tighten and tone.

To increase the intensity of my workouts

To start running again

My Program:
I track EVERYTHING I eat on the website every day

I wake up in the morning and do a 30-60 minute workout followed by a 20-45 minute walk

My workouts vary greatly from dancing to pilates to circuit training and everything in between

Personal Information:
I am a 30 year old wife and mother of one 9 month old baby girl. I also have two step-children (8 and 5) that I love very much.

I currently live in Abingdon, MD

Prior to being a stay-at-home-mom, I worked in accounting and financial analysis. I love numbers, but sitting at a desk is not my thing. In the future I am hoping to open my own gym.

Other Information:
A quote I've always remembered and held dearly is the following:

"The definition of insanity is seeking comfort in that which caused your discomfort to begin with."

I think of the quote every time I go on an emotional eating binge. Sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't, but it's always true.

    A friend will always...
    Cheer you up,
    When you're blue

    Listen to all your woes
    Help you out with your foes

    Encourage you to succeed
    Know when you are in need

    Remember you on special days
    Help you out in so many ways

    Tell you how things really are
    Remember you from afar

    Give you what support they can
    Be your true and logal fan

    Love you in good times or bad
    Build you up when you're sad

    Help you when you've done it wrong
    Remind you that you do belong

    Give you a pat on the back
    Tell you when you've got the knack

    Hug you just to console
    Remind you that you have a goal

    Celebrate your victories
    Pick you up from your knees

    Be with you when you're down
    And try to wipe away your frown
    Have A Wonderful Weekend!
    Hugs, Teresa

    With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for
    yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an
    opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

    Friends Are Angels

    Our friends are like angels
    Who brighten our days
    In all kinds of wonderful
    Magical ways

    Their thoughtfulness comes
    As a gift from above
    And we feel we're surrounded
    By warm, caring love

    Like upside-down rainbows
    Their smiles bring the sun
    And they fill ho-hum moments
    With laughter and fun

    Friends are like angels
    Without any wings
    Blessing our lives
    With the most precious things
    Have A Wonderful Weekend...
    Hugs, Teresa
