Hi, My name is Becky.
I lost 30 lbs awhile ago with exercise and diet. Then I gained it all back. Joined SparkPeople early 2009 but did nothing with it until January 13, 2011 when I decided it was time to focus on getting healthy because more weight was creeping on. Now my husband is helping me get my groove back. We try to jog/walk 3 miles a day every other day. Also, I am biking 6.5 miles with my teenage daughter who is wanting to stay in shape and make healthier diet choices. I feel fantastic and alive. My goal is to lose 29 lbs by October.

My daughter has joined SparkTeens and my younger sister "CMORGART" has joined SparkPeople. We are all on our way to living a healthy lifestyle.

Motivational rewards to me everytime I meet a weight loss goal:.
