The Big 6-0!

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Well, it has certainly been a long time since I have written a blog, about 8 months. Today I have reached my 60th year in this life. I am ready to get serious about losing weight once again. Of course the Birthday cake and Ice Cream did not help in that area but hey, I feel good about celebrating my life.......celebrating LIFE!! God gave this life to me and evidently still has plans for me here, so I am thankful. I am blessed so much and so thankful I serve a God who loves me despite my many shortcomings and failures. I am thankful for His mercy and grace. I am thankful for my family He has blessed me with and also for my friends, especially for those I have gained here on Spark who hold a special place in my heart.

I praise God for leading me to SparkPeople for they have been so helpful in my weight loss success despite my back slide now. There are so many tools here on the site that are still free to use and I plan to do just that and turn this weight gain around once again. I refuse to give up. With God's help, I CAN do this and I plan on success once again. I stayed around my goal weight for three years from 2008-2011..... ....

Thank you Spark friends for all the encouragement. I have missed you all and I plan on interacting with you again in the near future. You have blessed me much. I hope I will be able to bless you also. Till next time, God bless you, Shirley
