I joined Sparkpeople in April 2010 and lost about 12 pounds to reach my goal weight in about 2 months. I've been through periods when I'm very active on SparkPeople, and other periods when I'm not.

I've been through some life stuff the past 5 years or so. Diagnosed with thyroid nodules, I've had a few episodes of depression, and since my Mom passed away in 2018 I've had bouts with panic attacks and anxiety. My younger son has some behavioral issues which we've been trying to get to the bottom of for quite some time.

I'm very thankful to have a very supportive group of friends, and also very thankful that I really enjoy exercise (cardio!). It's challenging for me to not overdo things and get injured. I also don't really enjoy weight training, but I know it's important for strong bones, good metabolism, and my father in law swears it helps his blood glucose! So I try to pay attention to keeping things moderate, and also incorporating weight training.

I really enjoy reading SparkPeople success stories. While I'm not overweight according to doctor's guidelines, I'm heavier than I was when I felt healthy and strong. So I will keep on trying and keep on tracking.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
