Hi folks!!! Well, I have been gone for about 2 years. So much has happened. Unfortunately it includes gaining more weight. I am at my all-time high of 270 lbs. Ugh!! I have learned through the help of a great friend, Jean, from church to love myself and not judge myself based on my "outside," but instead look to my inside. For once I love me for me. I am no longer obssesed with wanting to be"thinner," or "skinny," but instead, I am more interested in being healthy. I am back to experiencing chest pains and have started on a new twice a day medication which seems to be helping prevent angina, so that is good. I decided this evening to try my hand with Sparkpeople again. I did pretty good with it previously. The big thing is that this time, "I" am different. So here's to a new beginning... Cheers!!!!!!

    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

    Glad to see you're starting over! I am too. I was having problems logging in, but it may have just been an excuse for goofing off. Anyway, I'm back! And I joined your team, Journey to Success. What a great name!
