Yes its a new healthy me and I plan to get even healthier. I donot have any pictures of myself at 217 pounds and in a size 20 but hey you can use your imaginations. I have taken it one day at a time just consentrating on eating healthy and doing a bit of exercising every other day. I started sparking on april 1st 2010 and I am now at 139 and a size 7/8 + ladies of course. I know its easy to get discouraged especially at first when one may not see any change. For the first month for me nothing then the next month only a couple of pounds then I dropped done to a size 17/18. I thought to myself even if I stay like this I feel better and look healthier. I believe that Jesus who is my Lord and Savior wants me to be and look healthy. I may never get a bikini figure ( not that I would wear one) and I may never be asked to model for a seniors fashion magazine but hey the 60 year old men especially my hubby ( most important) think I am pretty sharp for my 59 years. I first planned to go to 150 pounds and a size 9/10 Well I am at the size 7/8 and 8 lbs past my 150 goal. It was a year for me on the 1st of april. I know thats april fools but I was no fool joining spark. I am now 139lbs . If I stay where I am I sure would't complain but neither will I if I get smaller then a size 7/8. That would be unbelievable. Thank you Lord and thank you Spark friends.
