Never Give Up...

I have been a part of Spark since August 2008! I have reached my goal original goal of 182 lbs. I've made many positive changes in my life in the time spent here. I made many wonderful Spark Friends, some of whom I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Without them and Spark I would have thrown in the proverbial towel and just quit trying to do more to lose weight, to do more to learn about nutrition, to do more to better myself physically and mentally, to better understand the why and what ...
I have been a part of Spark since August 2008! I have reached my goal original goal of 182 lbs. I've made many positive changes in my life in the time spent here. I made many wonderful Spark Friends, some of whom I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Without them and Spark I would have thrown in the proverbial towel and just quit trying to do more to lose weight, to do more to learn about nutrition, to do more to better myself physically and mentally, to better understand the why and what of my eating disorder (mindless) to better coup with it.
It is up to me to "Make It Happen" if I don't who will...no one! Always back to those initial small steps to make changes for the better. To battle mindless eating every single day is an ongoing challenge.

Thanks for stopping by! Sadly, I have only started stringing a couple strands of lights! Work has been crazy and time has not allowed me to get out there...so few daylight hours! I almost said "forget it" this year, as it takes about 2 weeks/8 hrs daily, but tradition can't be broken! Too many people drive from everywhere to see the display and I can't let them down! I may get them done JUST in time to take them down, but the show must go on! :D

Hope all is well with you and yours!
