2011 was a whirl wind. I just turned 40, was in the best shape of my life, happy, healthy and strong! I had lost 85 lbs & kept it off long enough to be selected as a Shape Magazine Success Story. I was on top of the world. Then, I forgot. I forgot what got me there. I turned up my nose at tracking my nutrition. A knee injury sidelined my fitness routine. The death of my mom tortured my soul and I spiraled out of control. I shelved my old profile with my milestones/challenges into a blog so I could rewrite my future. Here are my new MILESTONES & THOUGHTS: 01/01/08 ... 215.1 08/01/10 ... 129.0 02/09/20 ... 206.5

Member Since: 4/29/2007

Fitness Minutes: 39,796

My Goals:
~ Get into single digit jeans (DONE)
~ Live a more active lifestyle (DOING IT!!)
~ Have more confidence (much improvement!)
~KEEP UP WITH MY KIDS (will that ever happen?)
~ Be a positive role model to my children in every way I can.

New for 2010:
~Run 10K in races
~60 push ups in a minute
~Improve balance & core strength
~Sculpt my buns & thighs


My Program:
Eat less (1500 kcal)

Exersize more

Drink a lot of water

Always reaching for a new goal



Personal Information:
This is the last year I get to enjoy my 30's.

I am a recent Bay Area transplant to a small, Northern California town. Married for 10 years, but I've loved him since I was 15 years old. We have two beautiful, brilliant and energetic children that amaze me more and more every day.


Other Information:
I am proud to say that I was featured as a success story in the February 2011 edition of Shape Magazine. The same month I turned 40.

My advice to all is to start small and challenge what you think you are capable of.

    The last time someone posted on here was over FOUR years ago, so wonder how you are doing? We joined Sparks in '07, but I never left, because I knew if I did, I'd be about 314# by now instead of 135#. Hope u r doing well.
