Hi I'm Victoria. I'm sure I could list off a variety of reasons why I am here, and you could all relate...bottom line is...I'm sick of being the way that I am and I need to change!!

I started the Spark program just before the new year, so I haven't been at this long, but I have already gained so much valuable information! For me, keeping track of what I put in my mouth is key. I had no idea I was consuming so many calories! Now I do and I track everything..and it's working.

Maybe the biggest key factor for me was to not put a time limit on when I would get to my goal. I know when I would like to reach my goal, but if it doesn't happen that's okay, I won't give up!

I drink lots of water all day long and take supplements which have really helped keep me feeling good...body and mind.

I got a Polar heart rate monitor (ft60 with gps) on April 1st. Since then, I have been religiously walking 5 times per week, usually 5+ miles each time...and it's workin'!!

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

    You asked how long have I been on First Place. I have done it off and on since 1998. I have been committed to it since 2009. I have 10 pounds to go to my goal and the last couple months I have not been as committed as I should. I Love the Bible studies. They are my favorite part of it.
