Feb 2017
My name is Monique & I've been on SPARK since 2008. Take in fewer calories than you expend & you have a winning calculation for weight loss. Unfortunately for most of us there's more to it than a math equation. Math was never my strong suit anyway.

I was able to lose 50 pounds last year. I started getting regular chiropractic care, I was eating better, I had a major stressor remove himself from my life, I was exercising harder & more frequently. And it worked. The planets aligned & the weight came off.

I need to re-align my planets again. I've gotten off kilter & lost my way. I'd really like to be a LOT closer to my "ultimate goal" by my 10 year SPARK anniversary. That would make me feel like a Success Story.

Other interesting tidbits:
* I'm the Mom of one spoiled dog & 3 mostly grown boys
* I'm a 8.5 year Survivor of Inflammatory Breast Cancer
* I'm a an adult learner who got her Associate's in May 2017.
* I help care for my 97 year old Grandmother with Alzheimer's
* My knees are bone on bone
