As I reflect on the past year, I've made great strides but I've still got a long way to go towards healthy. I'm a 31 yr old, college student with a chronic disease. Unfortunately my health problems effect my ability to eat and digest most foods, and effects my ability to do activities. Before I got sick I weighed in at 224 (heaviest), I tried everything even the extreme to no avail. Since getting sick I now weigh between 135-140 (on average). Before joining SPARKS my philosophy was "just eat whatever you can when you can" and "just move when your able". That method was not working for me or my health. Since joining SPARKS I have learned how to better fuel my body and have been able to find workouts that work for me. I have never felt so close to "normal" in my life. LOVE YOU SPARKS!

    Hi!! I haven't visited sparks for months and I haven't made it up the "M" yet this summer. I've been doing a lot of rafting and just got back from "Rocking the Rivers". Now is the time to settle down and get ready for my bariatic surgery. My surgery date is Sept, 28th so I only have little over a month to get rid of my bad habits...oooppps. I would love to get together and meet but I'm not quite ready for the "M" yet but other walks I'm up for. Thanks for you note. emoticon
