Board Posts name is Amy, I am 50 yrs old and continuing the quest for a healthy lifestyle. I am married to a wonderful and awesome man, we have 3 children and 1 granddaughter. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist, and I love my job. I am here to make the rest of my life the BEST of my life.

I have been with Spark since August 2009. All the weight lost so far has been within the last couple years......some before SPARK but with SPARK I have learned how to KEEP IT OFF!!! That has not happened with other past programs I have tried. This is the best I have ever felt, I feel I have control over my bad habits. I am learning so much on this site, it is unbelievable the amount of information and SUPPORT!!! I receive here. I look forward to logging on everyday,....this is an addition to my family.....this is my SPARK FAMILY!!!! Thank you.

My heaviest weight that I can remember was far in my journey i have lost 65lbs(it has happened within the last 2 yrs) is an unbelievable feeling. I am so close to my goal, I will not give up the fight. SP has really been the catalyst that has made me so successful.

I know that exercise is a vital part of my life, not just to get to my goal weight but a lifetime commitment!!! Also, having my hubby as my exercise partner and a member of SPARK is a big plus. Now, we have Spark friends that mall walk with us...that is a lot of fun that goes with a great workout too. We are planning future activities for our local Spark team!!! Being active is now a routine...not an exception.

2013: I relocated my family from Massachusetts to West Virginia so I could become my dad's care giver after the unexpected death of my mom.

2013 is going to be a RESTART for me!! I am not going to let the health issues BEAT ME!
Gotta love it..........SPARK!!!

2012 has been a rough year. July I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer and had thyroidectomy. October I was diagnosed with lung cancer, had a wedge resection (part of my lung removed) and will be starting chemotherapy soon. The ironic part, is I am a NON-SMOKER, lol!! I will not let this defeat me.

2013 is going to be a RESTART for me!! I am not going to let the health issues BEAT ME!
Gotta love it..........SPARK!!!

My father passed away February 2015.
My life turned upside down for a while. The last few years taught me what is important in life!!! Time with my family and my church is where I am devoted. Money is not everything.

    Hello!!! How are you, Tony, and Angel??? Sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. I lost my mother almost 2 years ago now and it still hurts at times.
    Glad to see you back on SP. I missed you! - Diane

    Hubby, Ian, and I all have health issues but we are doing okay.

    We are empty nesters now. Ian was offered a management position 70 miles away. He works long hours. At least 2 days from open till close, plus 5-7 days each week, 3 Saturdays a month, and one Sunday. He rents a nice little ranch house across the street from where he works. He comes home for Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter and calls us every 1-2 months.

    The engineer owner where my hubby works died and Benny has assumed the work he did so he is busy. He still has to deal with some things from his mom's estate. We are still getting rid of her stuff and have tons of paperwork to deal with. Decluttering. We are downsizing.

    We are working on our house and remodeling. The bathroom, kitchen, laundry room/pantry are fairly well done except for some molding. The hall and dining room need flooring and molding. We have the back porch almost done except for adding 2 more custom cabinets hubby is making. We completely rebuilt it and it is really nice now. We stained our house in late Fall and have down a lot of work outside. Hauling off junk. It looks great.

    OMG!!!!!! I have missed you soooooooooo much!! I even tried to call you and left a message to find out if you were okay. I know you have had so much to deal with the last few years. I'm afraid to even ask about how everything turned out. I'm just relieved that you are ALIVE!
