It has been over two years ago, that I began this wonderful Spark adventure. I have successfully lost sixty pounds and as of the beginning of September 2011, I have been in maintenance for one year. Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. I am stepping into my future each day as I build a foundation of health and joy with a commitment to physical activities and wonderful healthy food while making connections with new Spark Friends.

This is the next great adventure in my life. I want it to be the best it can be. Join me in a celebration of life as we transform ourselves with love and gratitude into exactly who we want to be.

    Hi Rosie :)

    I noticed we have some things in common... including the Gabriel Method and healthy organic eating and other holistic outlooks :)

    I don't spend to much time here except for logging my meals and fitness but I try to post something every day before I go. I try to blog on weekends and spend a bit more time getting to know the website and learning about other people like you!

    Chat soon, TC
