This journey is about PERSISTENCE and PROGRESS, NOT perfection.

Hello, Sparkers! Thank you so much for visiting my Spark page! I'm Jennifer, a 51-year-old married Texan with two children and two grown step-children.

I joined SP on January 1, 2011, and it has been such a wonderful experience. I simply LOVE this site! It is filled with wonderful, supportive people and lots of great information, resources and tools. And most of all, I love the support of my Spark friends.

    Hello Jenn,

    You don't know me. I think you were heading out as I was just getting started. Thank you so much for all the motivation you provided me. I was able to drop 110 pounds and even began running...completing several 5Ks and ran all but 5 min of my last one. Like you, I fell off the band wagon. My inability to exercise the way I wanted to after surgery was the Jenga piece that caused the entire tower to topple. I've regained 50 pounds, but am determined that the relapse will end there. I am so very happy to see you back on SP and to watch your success again.
