2015 Update: SparkPeople has been a part of my success in health endeavors every time I've tried since 2011. It works. Now I have to work!

2011: Hello friends! I'm starting my journey of changing from within. A new friend who is a kindred spirit turned me on to SparkPeople by giving me a copy of the book. I started reading it one week before I joined the website. I can truly say I'm excited and that is a special and welcome feeling.

I hope to become more present, healthy, and energetic for myself and my own sanity but also for the people I serve. I have two Masters degrees. One is in Social Work and the other is in Human Sexuality Education. I work in the field of addictions.

I'm hoping to make some new friends, create motivation, lose weight, gain health, inspire others, turn off the negative self talk, and start hearing sweet sounds of success all around me.

Peace and harmony,

Personal Information:
I have 2 cats and they are awesome! MEOW

I had knee surgery in the middle of 2013. I gained a lot (literally & figuratively). My knee has never been the same but I'm still blessed and I will figure out what works for me.

I had 3(yes 3) hand surgeries in 2014. I experience much less pain and I am very grateful!

Systemically I have some challenges but I'm determined to find my new best health and best me!

    Welcome to the site! I'm glad the sparkpoints motivate you :) They certainly do the same for me! I think the time spent on here is valuable though because you're learning about healthy living or getting/giving support to members, etc. It helps me stick to my program and reach my goals! I think you should definitely check out some spark teams so you can get a small community to keep you motivated (and in check :P). Some of them have fitness challenges that are super fun too! You're sure to find some that interest you so you can try them out! If you have any questions about the site, feel free to mail me. Good luck reaching your goals :)
