Hi, my name is Linda and I joined sparkpeople on January 31st, 2011 at my highest weight ever, 256 lbs. As of January 5th, 2012, I have lost 100 lbs and my goal is to maintain my weight loss, gain more muscle and be the healthiest and fittest I can be.


~The first step to resisting temptation is wanting to.~

~Self-love is the only weight-loss aid that really works in the long run.~ Jenny Craig, diet guru

~Believe you can and your halfway there~ Theodore Roosevelt

~Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain~

original page wording 1-31-11: I have been overweight for most of my life. I have been on many diets that have helped me lose weight, I just haven't been too great at keeping it off. I am a mom of 2 active kids ages 9 and 7. I have decided that it's ok to make myself a priority and not feel guilty about it. I'm ready to be healthy, lose the weight and be active with my family.

    Thank you for visiting my page and leaving a message about the video. I originally sent it to my buddy in email then said...I want everyone to see this if they are losing track or need that extra push. Seeing is believing and if the people in the video were successful...why couldn't we become successful too? We can and we will! Keep doing what you are doing and keep up the good work! We are in the same class of starting SP! Let's keep one another encouraged emoticon ! Have a great weekend!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. This journey has been incredible and Spark Friends and the community were such an important part of it. Posting a blog touting a 50 lb. weight loss was something I used to only dream of. Thank you for being there as my dream came true! Spark on!
    Have a fabulous day!!
