"When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance.

The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will."

I just read the article about your journey. Awesome story. I'm so glad Huffington Post let you include references to Sparkpeople. When Sparkpeople success stories were on Oprah (when she still had her network show), no one was allowed to mention Sparkpeople at all. The only thing I heard remotely related to Sparkpeople was one successful guy slipped it in that he had been sparked. Again, thanks to Huffington Post for letting you give kudos to Sparkpeople. And, of course, kudos to you for the wonderful story that is You.

Spark On!

Thanks for the link! I went to Huffington Post to find you, but wasn't successful. Thanks again.

MOMMYOF2RN, I can barely put into words how happy I am for your success. I read it in your post, I see it in your pictures, I feel it in my bones. You are the definition of having been Sparked! Something lit a fire inside you that cannot be quenched. I salute you! I commend you! I adore your accomplishment! You are a living, breathing, example of the good life that happens when we eat less and move more. I'm giving you a big hug right now! Happy New Year!!!

Spark On!

As I reflect on 2012, I still can not believe that I have lost 120 pounds and 15% body fat! Its all so unreal. I went from a size 26 to a 10 and just feel so much better about myself! The nerve wrecking part is my story is going to be in the huffington post on January 2,2013....dont get me wrong Im excited, but also nervous because thousands of people will see my story and before/after photos. Hopefully it will encourage more people to get in shape and never give up, i Love Spark People, you guys are great! emoticon emoticon
