WHEW it has been a crazy few years! I am not even sure where to start!
Short Story: Joined Spark 7ish years ago and lost 80+ pounds. Kept it off for a few years. Was super active ran all the time, completed 2 full marathons, a bunch of half marathons, and tons of other crazy races. I hiked all over AZ and kept insanely active. Then fell into a crazy (not bad, just crazy) time in life. [Don't we all at some point?] I lost my job, met an amazing guy, got a great (buy very busy) new job, moved in with said guy, married guy, got a dog, got pregnant, put on lots of weight, had a baby via unplanned c-section, didn't take off the pre-pregnancy weight, got pregnant again, got really sick with a food borne illness, lost the baby, and that brings me to now...recovering and trying to get healthy so we can try to get pregnant again. Except for the obvious miscarriage and the illness I've been very happy. I have a wonderful hubby, an awesome, crazy, fun, beautiful 14 month little man and a great job. I'm just missing the being healthy part and taking care of myself. Through all that I stopped tracking my food, let life get in the way of working out, and I didn't make healthy changes to my lifestyle to allow me to succeed through all those changes. It's time to make some time back in my life to take care of me....that starts now.
Why Operation Wedding Ring?: When I was 6 months pregnant with my son I had to take off my beloved ring due to incredible swelling. I struggled and didn't take off the weight after he was born and much to my dismay my weight has prevented it from fitting again. I had to buy a cheap replacement but its not MY ring. My first big goal is to be able to wear my wedding ring again.
