I joined Spark People in December of 2007 - so I have been here a while.

I struggle with weight issues and have for many years. In September of 2015 I was admitted into a weight loss clinic run by our local hospital. I learned that I am severely insulin resistant and was able to lose 60 lbs over the course of the Optifast program which I attended until March 2016.

Now I need to continue my weight loss through diet and exercise. The Optifast program proved that I can lose weight successfully, so I need to acknowledge that and follow through. Spark people give me the support and tools I need to be successful. Besides which my darling daughter, who is the best diet buddy ever, is also on Sparks so we can keep in touch and spur each other on!

    Fridays Food For Thought.....

    Your body will be around a lot longer then that expensive handbag.
    INVEST IN YOUR SELF. ~~Unknown

    But yes Invest in your Health. Buy the food that is good for you. Get a knew pair of walking shoes. Join a gym. Keep up with your yearly physical. I think you get the picture.
    Invest in you. Take care of you! There is only one you,so why not be your own good INVESTMENT?
