After over 6 months of maintaining, I'm loving life! 2014 is a rocking year!!!

After one year of being active again on Spark, I lost over 70 pounds, attained my final weight goal and am in the best shape of my life. This time I've gotten it right! Lifestyle changes, not just diet!

Now I've maintained in my goal range for over 6 months, learning my limits and enjoying my new healthy lifestyle and body! Goals are now to keep improving - to run longer and faster, and to be stronger! I love training for new challenges!

emoticon and good morning! Here is my advice for today by James J. Walsh:

“People who laugh actually live longer than those who don’t laugh. Few persons realize that health actually varies according to the amount of laughter.”

So have lots of emoticon today! Enjoy your Wonderful Wednesday! emoticon emoticon

Just dropping by to say Good Morning and Happy Friday and share the following inspirational quote by an unknown source with you:
“Enjoy Life….No matter how hard it may seem…
When life gives you a thousand reasons to cry,
show the world that you have a million reasons to SMILE!!!!”

Wish you a Happy Friday and a Memorable weekend!
