Hi There!

My life has been a constant struggle with the scale...I guess we have all been there. :o)

Back in 1993 I lost a lot of weight (50 lbs) with a Church group known as the Circle of Discipline (COD). I enjoyed this group and its fellowship. Like everything in life, there are always changes, people move and groups cease.

Even though I know what to do for myself as far as eating and exercising, I just couldn't seem to get started on changing my ways.

One day my sister clued me in to Spark People (SP)and when I finally checked it out, I was totally hooked. It was just the 'Spark ' that I needed to get motivated in changing my ways and I found it with SP. YAHOO!

In my signature box, I've included a quote from HEBREWS 12:11, it was one of the verses that we were required to memorize for COD ~ haven't forgotten it either :o) I hope that it helps anyone that may be struggling in the beginning. Its all about discipline and being patient.
So hang in there and be strong. It will happen. ;o)
