Welcome to my SparkPage! I’ve been a member of SparkPeople.com since June 10, 2010. Six months before joining, my highest weight was 220 pounds. Trying and failing every diet on the market put me on a roller coaster year after year. That is, until I became a member of SparkPeople.com. This program made me realize that what I needed was a change in lifestyle, not a diet that would eventually end. With God in my life, determination to succeed, and the support and encouragement of my family, friends and members of SparkPeople.com, I embarked on my journey to better health.

Choosing better nutrition and becoming physically active while tracking everything I eat and do added to the success of reaching my goals. On July 12, 2011 I reached my weight goal. I went from wearing size 20 to a size 6! Over the past three years this 59 year old gal has become addicted to bike riding through wooded trails, paved trails, and roadways. I enjoy power-walking, running and kayaking. During the winter months I enjoy snowshoeing and continue to ride my bike and jog on back roads. I’ve fallen in love with Nature and have become a “shutter-bug”. And I have fun blogging about the different sights on my trails. Before I became a member of the SparkPeople community, I used to read about outdoor adventures and admire pictures of people hiking and biking in and around the Grand Tetons, Canyonlands, Arches National Park or the Gunks. Now I write about my own adventures and find myself in those kinds of pictures. My blogs continue to document them.

I welcome you to take time to read some of my blogs here on my SparkPage. Life is an adventure. There are many roads for us to travel to reach our goals in life. Choose the healthy road. Have your goals in full sight and take one step at a time to reach them. It may be difficult at first, you may experience bumps every once in a while, but with consistency at working hard and not giving up, what you thought was impossible you can make possible! Every day I want to be better than I was the day before. Join me as we journey side by side to reach our goals. Together, we can do it one step at a time!

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle."

Hello again and thanks for your message on my Spark page. I have been living in West Africa (Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Senegal) for the last 39 years. We have lived in Senegal for 29 years in total. I do enjoy living here but I do miss my family members who are scattered in North America (mostly in Canada). My husband and I are contemplating going back to Canada to live in a year or so. I hope so... Bye for now. Lise

what it would look like, and what it would feel like.
Then do something every day to make it a reality!"

Thanks for the comment on my blog. That is part of what I was thinking. We have things we put into storage 2 years ago when we started trying to sell the house and even the most aggressive agent we had never told us to change those color.

SO I will get on the ground and clean all those edges with a toothbrush all around all the floors and do a few other things and calling it a day
