Hi I am Marilyn 67 and need to loose weight, My husband and I live on a farm in Iowa, Love our House Dog Tobylynn ( a Miniture Snacheers.) Have Lots of cats . We love to eat out, watch the Minnesota Twins Ball Team. Enjoy going to casinos expecially Laughlin. I really need to loose some weight. I know I would feel better and would be able to walk faster. I would like to loose up to 50 poounds. Love to have to wear a couple sizes smaller. We have a daughter, her husband and two grandchildren. Love being home and able to go when Don decides it is time to go somewhere. We kinda have a little coffee club. Really Don goes a whole lot more than I do but it there is a birthday then the women join in on the coffee and cookies at a local resturant about 5 miles away. I love talking with people especially doing e-mails and facebook. I love being on the computer. Enjoying looking up recipes and things. Support is very important in loosing weight and I am looking forward to supporting each and every one of you. Thanks for letting me join your team. I am not good at doing pictures I will have to wait for my daughter or granddaughter to help me. Oh I guess I did my picture right. Maybe have more pictures later. Marilyn

    Hi Marilyn,

    Partying people, songs being sung
    sugarplums dancing, all in good fun.
    Presents are given; reindeer fly high
    Goodwill on earth, stars in the sky.
    Peace on earth, love & joy to all.

    Thanks for the Birthday wishes. Yes we love our little muchkin. She is a yorkiepoo and weighs in at about 7.5 to 8 lbs. She is a lot of company and very very spoiled. She rules the house, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

    Marilyn: Thank you so much for my sp mail, the first thing I have done is take up our new team challenge and sent myself a Goodie. I have decided to stay away from all the sweets this month and I know there are many of them, but I have type 2 diabetes and so I sent myself a fruit basket. Thanks for joining me on this new road in December. Not sure where I'm going from here but I just have to get out of this rut and loose some weight.

    Hi Marilyn, You asked how I was keeping myself motivated. Here are a few tools I use: daily I search for an inspirational quote & post it as my Spark Status. I visit friend's pages that have been successful & usually find just what I needed to read. I plan ahead for my meals so that I feel refreshed & pleased at the end of the day instead of bloated & discouraged. I prepare a blog for the next day & 'huddle' with my Teams. Those are things that help keep my engine revved. Hope you'll find at least one that will help.

    "Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which every day produces, and which most men throw away."-Charles Caleb Colton

    I hope you have a Sparktacular Saturday! Gentle hugs & positive thoughts. Sending ((skinny vibes)) I am so DONE!

    Keep your spark burning brightly!
