2014 is winding down. Only a few more days to go. The past 18 months have certainly presented me with challenges. My mom died and then needing to undergo by-pass surgery on my heart just this summer. None of it was pleasant adn during that time I felt I was entitled to "let myself go." Even after the surgery when I should have been making every effort to improve my health. I got lazy and took it easy. Let me tell you, that was the worng thing to do. I felt I "deserved" some time off. It didn't help anything and actually made things worse. Now I am even heaveir than previously. Any progress I previously made has been erased. So I figured, "why wait until the new year to get the ball rolling?" So on the 18th of December I reset my Spark program and started new. A fresh beginning. God has opened my eyes and filled my heart with a new lease on life. I am grabbing hold with boths hands and feet. Anyone who tried to take it away from me will have a battle on their hands!!!!!

    emoticon Have a great weekend! :o) emoticon How wonderful that you have your mom's coffee cup! And it has kitties too! I am blessed my mom turns 81 this April. But I have 3 daughters in Heaven. My oldest birth daughter passed at only 28 (almost 11 years ago) and the little crafts she made me make my days! :o) We never get over these incredible losses. (((HUG)))

    emoticon for joining the "I Can Do All Things Through Christ!" team. I wish you much success with your weight loss. Take things one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time and always believe in yourself that you can do this, one pound at a time. emoticon emoticon -- Lou
