Life is one of the greatest adventures given to each one of us ... enjoy every day as much as you can ... learn to choose the things that will make you the best you can be. My first year with SparkPeople (2008) was a success! I did manage to lose 35 pounds, Now it is 5 years later I've retired, and have decided to restart the program. I'm hoping the extra time on my hands will help me to visit daily, and the support will from teammates will help keep me on track. I'M BACK ... AUGUST 1, 2020

    Happy Friday! Just stopping by to say hello and to wish you a wonderful weekend. I hope things have been going well for you and you are enjoying the "view" along the way of your journey. Take time to enjoy where you are at the moment, but love yourself enough to want more!

    My weekly weigh in was last night...had another loss, so I've had 18 straight weeks of losses! People are beginning to notice and it sure feels good! I'm feeling much better about myself.

    Thank you for your support, it means so much to me!!

    Welcome back! I am a "returnng" SP but unfortunately the first time I was here, I really didn't lose. I maintained. Which now I realize was good. I had been put on medicine that caused weight gain. So maintaining (not gaining) was a good thing. I am at my heaviest right now but plan on changing that. I get to come off of this medicine in July and I'm gettin a headstart! emoticon
