Hi, my name is Beth. I lived in Florida for 3 years, I moved there for my ex-husband. Unfortunately, the marriage was very toxic and bad for me, so I moved back home to Wisconsin and my divorce was finalized in January 2020. Then in November 2020, I moved to the beautiful state of Colorado. I absolutely love it here and I’m the happiest I've been in a very long time!

With everything I went through in Florida, I've gained back about 90 pounds, but have lost 40 and kept it off! Just 50 pounds to go and I've been successful with weight loss before and I can do it again, I know I just need to stick with it! My goal is to lose all that I gained in 2021. I currently have severe arthritis in my left knee so exercise is out for me so I'm concentrating on nutrition.

Some background...

When I first joined Spark I lost 60 pounds in 8 months. Why I strayed I don't remember because it was so long ago.
Then in 2009 I had gastric bypass. I lost 155 pounds. I felt I did well with it; I kept the weight off for 6 years. But then once I moved to Florida I gained quite a bit of weight back.
So here I am again and I'm determined to lose it for life!! Spark helped me lose weight before so I know I can lose it again! I know I can do this and I'll never stop trying!!

A little more about me...I'm from Green Bay, WI and now live in Colorado! Zumba and swimming are my favorite forms of exercise so I plan to incorporate those as soon as my knee gets better. It's so frusting!
