Hi, I'm Karla. I'm turning 50 this year-October 11. I'd like to give myself the "birthday gift" of "permanent weight loss" -- but I won't reach my goal until February 2014 if all goes as planned -- so the journey will be the gift.

I'm hoping SparkCoach will work for me. I am a born-again Christian and desire to serve Jesus. My two favorite pastimes are playing the piano and playing with dogs. I enjoy playing the piano for my church. I also am a vegetarian, I like to bowl, Zumba, walk, and strength train. I also love volleyball but have nowhere to play ... sniff. I am going to start very slow with this. After I complete the 10 minute challenge I will investigate other teams I would like to join.

I wish everyone the best on their own personal journeys. And please feel free to add me as a Spark Friend. Would love some more!
