I was able to get some gardening done today in this beautiful weather!

Everything happens for a reason!

10/8/08 - 2/20/09: Reached my first weight loss goal of 20 lbs!
It really works!

2/20/09 - Working on my next & maybe last 10 lbs.

4/17/09 - Five more pounds to go!

6/19/09 - I did it!
30 lbs total lost!
Wooooot!
Now for maintenance!

A phone call from my one & only sibling, my sister, who lives far away from me.emoticon

Nothing Is Impossible with God.
Each Day Is A New Beginning.
When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

My wonderful beautiful wife. We complement each other, often hold hands and do almost everything together.

I have lost 6 pounds. Though I am not trying as hard as I feel I should I am very happy about the weight loss. Good luck to all of you.

Never give up, never quit, never surrender

You only fail when you stop trying

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you can’t. It’s a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

The fact that it is Friday for me. I'm on day number 7 and I get my 7 days off! I can't wait!

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

When I added favorites (butter and brown sugar as two examples) to my tracker for breakfast and realized that I needed to remove them and add the portion sizes....lol......900cals vs the actual 276.

That made me smile and giggle both.

Seeing a former co-worker when I was in the grocery store and getting a hug from her.

The friendly and helpful cashier who helped me at the self-checkout when my receipt got stuck in the machine,

Hearing Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back" on the radio on the drive home.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

So many things today; the Easter breakfast at church, watching the little kids during the egg hunt after the breakfast, the church service, and the fellowship today.
And after I got home, getting out of my dressy clothes and into my pajamas.
