I originally started the SPARK in April 2010 and did really well. In a year I had lost 44 lbs. Then I stopped SPARKING. I have no idea why, I just did. I grew bored, thought I didn't need to count calories anymore, etc. Here I am...back where I started...again. While I love Spark, I need more. I've decided to do Optifast with medical support and group meetings. I feel like I need face to face meetings to keep me honest and I want to work with a dietitian to find what works for me. I'm also going to try a personal trainer.

I know I can't be like this anymore. I hate this. I hate how it feels to be this heavy. It makes me sad. It makes me embarrassed and I'm just done with it. No more because I know more and I know better. I need to live like I need to and I will.

- Exercise daily
- 70 oz water daily
- Down 60 lbs. by the end 2014.
- Be honest with what I am eating. Log it everyday.


My Program:
Optifast to jump start my weight loss. Move to a low carb plan.

I am a carbohydrate addict and it is my ultimate downfall. I need to live a low carb lifestyle to become healthier. It's just a fact for me.

Small failures are acceptable as long as I understand why they happened and have a plan to adjust them for success the next time.



Personal Information:
My name is Beth, I'm 45 yrs old and I live in northern Illinois with my husband, my son and two dogs. I work, I play and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. Rome is by far one of the most beautiful destinations that I have travelled to. If anyone needs any advice on Rome, I am more than willing to share! 2012 was a wonderful trip to Paris. This year I will visit Seattle for my 10th wedding anniversary.


Other Information:
I'm an artist at heart. I play the violin. It frustrates me and brings me joy at the same time.

    It didn't turn out as well as I hoped. It tasted fine, maybe too much garlic. But the texture was awful. I think I processed it too much in the food processor. It was silky smooth like it's supposed to be, but I think it was a little too smooth. I'll have to work on it, because it really is pretty low cal. No butter, no milk, just eggplant, olive oil, garlic, onion, and lemon juice. I think it's a work in progress.

    You're right, baby steps! The scale and I have a love/hate relationship. Most days I just curse at it. No really, I do. But, I still like to watch the numbers go down. The other day I fit a pair of old jeans on over a pair of shorts. Can't complain about that!

    oh man, seriously! I once got so mad at the scale in college that i stomped on it - ONCE, with ONE foot, and broke the damn thing. OOPS. It was a total accident, and I didn't buy another one until last year. Got the digital glass one to remind myself to be reasonable! (just realized that this made me sound nutso...i'm normally a very calm person! the one stop just happened to be superhumanly strong and in the right (wrong?) place! ha!)

    we could make millions by coming up with a scale that measures how "good" you're being...it would fulfill the need to quantify your results but have nothing to do with weight!
