Changing My Life

After a life time of battling my weight, I want to stop the insanity and make permanent lifestyle changes. I'm starting a long journey to lose 125 pounds and gain fitness and energy

Update 6/2011. After successfully losing 75 pounds on this program I was put on bed rest to see if it would clear up a knee issue. I regainedn35 of those pounds and then floundered for a year with weight watchers where I got 15 of them off. Then I had stomach issues and much medical testing later discovered that I had a stomach obstruction and damage from a 1997 surgery and just had to have a roux n y bypass to remove the damage. Yikes, I never would have chosen surgery but I had to have it. I am grateful that I first learned here that I am responsible for my actions, moving feels good , food is for health and that my normal will always be monitoring what I eat .

I hope that you are enjoying the summer and that your days are richly blessed filled with joy. I've been away from Spark for a while, I have been searching for my "voice" and was finally able to blog again today. Today's revelations have been a real eye opener - if you have a chance check it out. Look forward to hearing from you soon. All the best - "Sprink"
