Update: As 2015 is drawing to a close, I have decided that authentic truth is where my freedom lies - I've gained 30lbs in the last 16 months. I'm ready to begin this journey again.


My commitment is:
1. I will exercise a minimum of 10 mins every day
2. I will track my calories and stay within my Sparktracker range
3. I will track my Fitness minutes on my Spark tracker
4. I will exercise daily to reach 2000 monthly fitness mins.
6. I will drink 15 cups min of water a day.
7. I will eat 5+ servings of freggies everyday.
8. I will strength train 3 days a week
9. I will be kind as opposed to down on myself
10. I will laugh more than cry
11. I will eat more non-labeled than labeled foods
12. I will run 1,000 miles this year.


I joined SparkPeople in April 2009 with the hopes of losing 9 lbs. I ended up losing 20 lbs and finding a whole new me. A me I never knew existed. A me that loves to exercise, especially running; a me who loves to eat healthy; a me who loves to celebrate the life God has given me. I developed an entirely new, HEALTHY lifestyle and I absolutely love it.
Here on Spark I have found the inspiration, encouragement, motivation and friendship to continue on my journey to a healthy, fit, happy life.
And it is a journey, full of ups and downs, good days & bad days, but forever moving forward. I will never go back to the way I led my life before. This is MY life and I am going to LIVE and enjoy it.

    I'm so very glad that you've joined the Emotional Eaters Team. The team is a place where you can vent. And where you will receive some awesome support. Of course, I am biased ... its my favorite team at SparkPeople! I hope you find exactly what you are looking for! Welcome to the team!

    Be sure to ask questions if you have them ... someone will likely have the answer. Use the tools SparkPeople provides. They are invaluable. If you feel an emotional eating attack coming on, come to the boards first. Write about it instead of pushing the feelings away with food. We're here for you!

    Eat well, journey well,
