Hello everyone!! My name is Tiffany Moníque, also known as "AKApella13" here on Sparkpeople. I am a singer, songwriter and solo recording artist actively working in the entertainment industry. Many know of me as 1/3 of "The Mamas" - the background vocalists for Beyoncé - from her 2007 "Beyoncé Experience", 2009 "I Am..Sasha Fierce" and 2011 "4" promotional tours.

I've have struggled with being overweight for the past 14 or so years and my weight fluctuated greatly throughout that time. I have witnessed it's negative effect on my health, family, happiness and career. In 2008, I took an honest look at myself and decided that I really needed to make a change. I began exploring various weight loss regimens and was referred to Sparkpeople by a sorority sister. I didn't joint at the time, but began viewing many of the tips provided on this site which contributed to a 20lb loss. I slipped up a bit along the way and began yo-yoing, so I made a "formal" commitment and joined Sparkpeople in December 2009. Since then, I've committed to a sincere pursuit of weight loss that has resulted in a 90lb loss so far. I am pursuing continued weight loss of about 10 to 15 additional lbs for optimal health, fitness, career advancement and to set a better example for my young son.

    Hello, SparkFriend,
    Gryffindor emoticon Hufflepuff emoticon Ravenclaw emoticon Slytherin emoticon
    I realize you have teams that work and teams that don't. Sometimes trying out a new team finds a fit.

    Today, I am going through my SparkFriend's list, on my SparkPage and sending out an invitation. Please come check out our HOGWARTS Winter*Term Owl*Mail team (located as my 1st team under my teams). It is set up for a waiting list to the upcoming winter*term. We have a 12 wk challenge (multiple choices) designed for your own personal 'fit' and, Challengers of HOGWARTS winter*term 2, is coming up, on December 1st. It is a private team, so you need to join the owl*mail team if you want to be Sorted.

    I created a blog about it, today, so please stop in and read it. If you're looking for a really refreshing new way to focus on your goals and form new friendships plus join in the celebrations of the seasons in a *fun* virtual online wizarding world ... please come.

    Join me for a whole new adventure.
