Good morning everyone! I'm very excited to be one of the new team leaders, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you wonderful 30-something sparkers!

A little about me: my name is Peach and I'm 31-years-old. This is my second stint on SP; I lost about 35 pounds four years ago, but life got in the way, and I gained back about 33 of those pounds. But no worries; in the past 7 months, I've shed 22 of them and I'm on my way back to my original goal weight. :) I live in NJ with my lovely boyfriend, but I work in NYC as a desktop support technician. Working in the IT career field guarantees 8-10 hours of sitting on my butt everyday, which is why I have become so diligent about improving my health and keeping the weight off.

Keep on keepin' on, everybody!

-Peach-

With every morsel eaten and every workout finished or skipped, it's my choice.

Hello everyone! I am looking forward to helping answer any questions you may have as well! My exercise is my "me" time now and I have found it very rewarding! So far the 30 and the start of 31 have been the best years yet!

Hey friends, here is a little about your leaders!


Pam~ LMSMOMMY

I am a 30 something mommy to a beautiful 2-1/2 year old daughter and am lucky to be married to a great guy. I work full time in a healthcare business role but my real passion is Childbirth Education. I teach Prepared Childbirth and Baby Care classes at local hospitals and love educating expectant families on what to expect during the birth process and how to care for their newborns. I recently began exploring Personal Trainer Certification and plan to start teaching hospital based prenatal/postnatal fitness classes in 2012.
My workouts include ChaLEAN Extreme and Zumba. Food is still a struggle for me but I track faithfully (even when I've splurged) and have had increased success by working to eliminate as many processed foods from my diet as possible. I'm still working toward my weight loss goals but making great progress. I hope soon to be able to say that I've met my goal and once I do I plan to start trying for baby #2.
I am so excited that you have joined our team! Please contact me with any questions, or just to chat.


Melissa ~ MELISSACANDLES

I have 2 beautiful children that are 5 and 3! I have been married to my best friend for almost 13 years! I work as an Office Manager for a small manufacturer. We make parts that may be on your home, in your home or attached to your truck! For the past 5 years I have also had my own business creating candles. Since that time I have added in lotions and soaps and lip balm as well. It is so much fun to create things with your hands. Over the past 2 years I have found a passion for exercise and healthy eating. I am hoping someday I can go back to school to become a personal trainer or a dietitian. Through my journey to loose weight I have found that I love to eat healthy and that the junk foods do not have the same taste they used to.
My workouts include Turbo Fire, ChaLean Extreme and I have begun to run as well. I am still trying to tone my tummy and inner thighs after the kids. We are not sure that we are done having babies yet, but we are wanting to wait at least until the youngest is in kindergarten.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have! I am excited to be a part of your fitness and healthy living journey!

Sarah~ SARAHFAILLA

Hi! My name is Sarah and am a 32 year old with a 5 and a half year old and an almost 2 year old. Both boys and both keep me busy! My man is dreaming of a little girl so we will see if it is in our future, we have had 5 miscarriages so we know that it could take a while if/when we try again.

I am currently living in China where my husband teaches a Life Education course for the Red Cross of China. We also lead a group of workers helping in the community, orpanages, etc!. I study Chinese, homeschool my oldest, work with our team here in China, am going to take the test to become a certified personal trainer and in July I will become a turbokick instructor! I am currently almost at my goal weight and have never been this fit in my life. I still struggle with the belly pooch and eating properly but workouts I am totally set! My desire is that we would take time for ourselves to workout, read, rest, whatever it may be that it helps us to be a better mom, wife, and woman. Working out is about more than the number we see on the scale- it's about us finding our confidence and having energy to reach our goals and enjoy our families! I look forward to getting to know you and seeing you reach your goals!

Hi everyone my name is Sarah and I have been on Spark for a few years now. I saw this team had no leader and so I figured why not go for it. Please give me a few weeks to get some ideas and new chats going and I am open to ideas that anyone may have! You can check out my sparkpage and spark blog to get to know more about me! I also have a few amazing ladies who will be here with me in revamping this team so we can truly support one another in this journey to health!

Sarah :-)
