❤ LadyStarSparkel - Once a Model... Now ~100lbs Overweight! Ugh!!! SO DISCOURAGING!!!! ... PRAYING!!! Jan '18 started GREAT & lasted about a week. Now it's Sept & I'm trying again with a New Strategy... Use Coaching!!! SP Premium Coaching, Kaiser Permanente (my Medical Provider) Cosching, & 24Hr Fitness Coaching. Without Accountability, Validation, & Encouragement I simply give up too easily!!! What follows is a Synopsis of my History... Slender until my 40s (~135-145lbs), I went through "The Change" early (42) and Weight started "Coming On." I went from ~145lbs to 220lbs by the time I'd reached 50. At 50, I found a Strict Support Group & lost 70lbs!!! WOW!!! I kept the weight off for ~6 years!!! I swore I'd NEVER put it on again!!! But, "LIFE HAPPENED"... My Rigid Support didn't bend with my changing life... By 60 ~250lbs!!! (Now, 63, ~265lbs??? YIKES!!!) I PRAYED for "Something" to HELP Get & Stay MOTIVATED!!! ***Sparkpeople*** had seemed the Answer!!! I began my SP Adventure in April 2015... GOAL: to get to ~150lbs & STAY THERE!!! I GREW DRAMATICALLY thru SP!!! I went From feeling a HOPELESS to feeling ENTIRELY SURE THIS WAS GOING TO HELP ME!!! (Dropping 5lbs in 5 days will do that!!!!) Sadly, my Enthusiasm & Weight Loss didn't last. * I did lose ~25lbs thru Sparkpeople's BLC28 (Biggest Loser Challenge). At the end, however, I experienced some Traumatic Stuff there & DROPPED OUT of SP Altogether!!! Result??? I promptly put on 30lbs!!! Ugh!!! * I didn't think I'd come back to SP... "A Few Bad Apples" had ruined it for me!!! Now, January 2018 is here... I"ve a New Kaiser Doctor, who I looking forward to meeting, I'm back to Sparkpeople & Joined Premium... I'm OPTIMISTIC AGAIN!!! YAY!!! [* NOTE: Enormous Disappointment upon meeting that "New Doctor" is probably what Squashed my Enthusiasm & Optimism... She didn't even so much as offer a Good Pep Talk!!!] Sept '18: Maybe with "Actual Support" I can again really use SP!!! This time, I PRAY to STICK with it!!! * I've LEARNED SO MUCH HERE & MET SO MANY FAB SP FOLKS!!! ♡ ♡ ♡ BLESSINGS to ALL!!! ♡ ♡ ♡ TODAY, I PRAY (AGAIN!!!) to PLEASE KEEP UP My MOTIVATION!!! (No Matter What!!!) xoxo ❤ SparkelStar (aka Constance in Berkeley, CA)

    "As long as you as an individual... can convince yourself
    that in order to move forward as best you can you have to be optimistic,
    you can be described as 'one of the faithful,'
    one of those people who can say,
    'Well, look, something's going to happen!
    Let's just keep trying.
    Let's not give up."

    Aren’t we all just flowers in the sun?
    We start small.
    We live through sunny days which help us grow, rains which nourish our souls,
    and storms which nearly end us, yet we survive.
    But, flowers have no fear.
    They grow without worry of envy from other flowers, they don’t feel inferior to those taller, or superior to those not quite as tall.
    Wouldn’t it be sad if a flower didn’t bloom at all, for fear that it’s colors wouldn’t be as bright, or that it’s petals may not be good enough for the world?
    Each one blooms in it’s own way, knowing without knowing, that’s all there is to life.
    Each one has worth.
    It really doesn’t matter if you are an early or late bloomer, just as long as you make sure to bloom to your full potential.
    Enjoy your time in the sun.
