2beatit1 Began SP Jun 20/10

Hi Fellow Sparkers,
My name is Jean. From British Columbia, Canada.
I started back to Spark People on Apr 20, 2010 after a 2-year absence. During that 2 years, I was diagnosed with severe arthritis and neuropathy with constant knife like pains down left leg.. I used that as an excuse not to exercise. At the time I weighed 212 lb. I have battled overweight for 38 years.

Hi Fellow Sparkers,
My name is Jean. From British Columbia, Canada.
I started back to Spark People on Apr 20, 2010 after a 2-year absence. During that 2 years, I was diagnosed with severe arthritis and neuropathy with constant knife like pains down left leg.. I used that as an excuse not to exercise. At the time I weighed 212 lb. I have battled overweight for 38 years.
I have lost 30 lbs to date and want to lose another 15 lbs before Apr. 21 so I can get into a special dress for my niece's wedding.

When I started with SP, I couldn’t walk 5 minutes without pain nor could I stand at a sink to do my dishes without pain.

RESULTS TO DATE:
Energy level 200% improvement
Blood Pressure Normal
Limited pain in back and knee
Now walking anywhere from 3 to 4 miles three times a week.

Spark People has so many tools to help us be successful. I encourage everyone to join whether it is to lose weight or just to strengthen your body and to eat the right balance of foods.This 70 year old gal does not intend to get old yet.

I AM DONE being scared if I can fit in to regular washroom stalls.
I AM DONE hating my body image!
I AM DONE not being able to walk or run with my grandkids!
I AM DONE with the yo yo diets!
I AM DONE being scared to be seen in a bathing suit!
I AM STRONGER!
I AM ONE OF GOD'S BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS!
I CAN WALK 3 MILES!
I CAN WORKOUT FOR OVER AN HOUR!
I AM DOING IT AND I WILL WIN!!!!

"I can do ALL THINGS through Christ, Who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

As well as working on SP, I am a distributor for www.sendoutcards.com;/126987 and I also want to write a book.

We are reorganizing this team!
Please be patient with us as we are reorganizing "Write His Answer Christian Writing Team ". It may be confusing at first as some of the topics do not match the Forum titles or may be repeated. Please be assured we are working on this. Thanks!

Wondering if you are still interested in the "Write His Answer Christian Writing Team? Please let us know!!!! We would be glad to have you participate!

Let us know how we can best serve you!

Hope you are having a GREAT day!



Blessings, Ronda and Christine
