Life moves too quickly to spend it hiding in the shadows. This isn't Junior High. Don't waste time worrying about how you look or what other people think about you. Get out there and LIVE! You're gonna make the world a better place, just by being YOU!
(Of course, that may mean picking up a hula hoop, or ukulele, or accordion...)

Member Since: 11/7/2010

My Goals:
Be a Joy Ninja, no matter my size or weight.

My Program:
Track food and fitness with Spark apps. Participate in SP community. Keep streaking. Live life TODAY!

Personal Information:
I'm Shelli. I'm 51, married to the best guy, with a young adult son and teenage daughter. We live close to Cincinnati and share a house with Bubba the Incorrigible Bulldog. I'm Creative Arts Pastor for an awesome church. I love to hula hoop and play quirky instruments. If you hang out on social media, I'm at ShellSquared on Facebook and YouTube and @realshellsquared and @mostmom on Instagram.

Other Information:
Years ago, I lost 51 pounds by following another program. I felt amazing. I had so much energy and I felt like myself again. I was ready to maintain, but the program said I still needed to lose 35 more pounds. That seemed impossible to me. Discouraged, I quit, and put all the weight back on. My dad gently pointed me towards SP, because he's a member. I joined in Nov., 2010, but didn't really start working the program until March 2011. I've been up and down, but I'm loving it! This a place, where I can set realistic goals, be encouraged, and achieve success.

    Your story and the joy it brings you, your family and friends is very inspiring. I am always telling people that you have to find something that you enjoy doing or it will be over soon. Thank you for sharing. I honestly had never considered hula hoops! emoticon

    Hello, just read your blog. It has diffently inspired me, as I too am in the same place in life. I want to get stronger in mind, body and soul. Not so worried about how I look, but how I feel. I turned 54 this year.

    Wow! You're really doing it! Every time I've tried to take a Sparkation, I lasted several days, then I was back! I've been following Weight Watchers Freestyle since 2/28/18, and am now 5 lbs. from goal. Woo-hoo! It's been a semi-Sparkation. Kudos to you, Shelley! Hope all is well with you...
