I love being part of the SparkPeople family! I am inspired as I transform myself and see others do the same. It is really fun to feel stronger, look better, and be healthier. Life is too short here on this earth to waste your time wanting to be someone rather than be that someone. I am tranforming from the inside out right now. I love to read the stories of other people on this journey with me. Keep Sparking!

    Did you know that there is a National Day to celebrate Junk Food? It’s today…. But we say, NO WAY!

    So I'm dropping by some SparkPages to remind everyone to say NO to empty food that won’t help our efforts!

    Make good choices on this ANTI-Junk Food Day! We can do this!

    ((((Sending SKINNY Vibes!))))
