From a little spark may burst a mighty flame.

I've been on SparkPeople off and on since 2008, and it has changed my life! When I first started, I lost 40 pounds, and even though that wasn't my final goal, I've maintained that loss for 10 years (with ups and downs from a new setpoint)- through moving to a new city, starting a new career, getting married, and having three beautiful kids.

Now that I am done having babies, I am ready to do it again. In some ways, I've lost that "sparkle" that living a healthier lifestyle gave me, and I want it back!

*Drink 64 oz water a day.

Medium-Term (by Thanksgiving):

My Program:
Adopting the true Spark philosophy - Making small changes every day to nourish my body with a healthy and balanced diet, energize myself with exercise, challenge my mind, and nurture my spirit.



Personal Information:
I'm a 37-year-old gal working as a manager at a software company in Mobile, AL. I'm married with two adorable little boys and a little girl.


Other Information:
"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." ~Jack London
