Proud member of BL Sapphire Beauties Fall Fitness Frenzy 2014

I'm 48, have three children, and have been married for 26 years. In the fall of 2011 I noticed that all of my clothes were fitting more and more snug. I avoided getting on the scale for several months because I knew it would not be good. A chance Facebook post by a friend in early December lead me to SparkPeople, which I had never heard of before.

I'm 48, have three children, and have been married for 26 years. In the fall of 2011 I noticed that all of my clothes were fitting more and more snug. I avoided getting on the scale for several months because I knew it would not be good. A chance Facebook post by a friend in early December lead me to SparkPeople, which I had never heard of before. I decided to sign up, although at the time I had no intention of actually DOING anything about my weight. I weighed 304 at that time; more than I have ever weighed in my life. I decided right then to start paying attention to what I was eating. I managed to lose 3 lbs that month and started 2012 at 301 lbs. At a doctors appointment on Jan 20th I discovered my thyroid, blood sugar, and blood pressure are all above normal. That's when I decided that I needed to take control of my health. I needed to do more than just pay attention to what I was eating, I actually need to alter my intake. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Every day is a new beginning: A day to say 'yes' instead of 'no'. A day to choose a smile, to choose light, to choose love. Every day is a new beginning, a new gift we get to do what we want with. What will you do with your day?

Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hi Lisa - I wanted to thank you for the spark goody and the information on the BL team challenges. I am now part of the Lovely Limes emoticon

I have never done a challenge before and I am looking forward to it as well as getting to know more sparkfriends.
