I celebrated my 6 year anniversary with Spark 11/11/13. I put an extra 20 lbs on my frame in fall 2007 -when I was immobilized after breaking my leg, and I'm close to getting the rest of it off now. I'm done with the inital baby steps now, and its time to ramp it up this coming year. Watch me go!

I am trying to learn about the South Beach style of diet now. Trying now to encourage my daughter to get on Spark. (She has just hit 300 lbs. and thinks her only option is gastric bypass surgery, I told her take exercise and diet one step at a time, a 5 lb. weight loss at a time). Hope that my daughter starts working out with me.


Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.
It involves risk as you step from the known to the unknown.
All your growth will depend on your activity.
Your strength and growth will come only through continuous
effort and struggle.
There will be no development without effort.

Trouble is the common denominator of living.
It is the great equalizer of life.
Your trials, your sorrows and your grief's will develop you.
When good or bad fortune comes your way,
you must give it meaning and transform it into something of value.

What happens to you is not as important
as your reaction to what is happening.

Hi, I'm a lifetime Maryland resident. I love to travel, particularly to the Caribbean and the 50 US states. I have a daughter who has gained weight herself. I have lost 16 lbs. prior to starting with Sparkpeople. My sister has lost over 70 lbs with diet and exercise.

Other Information:
I'm a Lost Fan -fond of Sawyer, Locke and Sayeed. I collect mermaid objects and I love Betty Boop's positive energy.

Hi Leyla -

Thanks for the note and the goodie! It's good to see you back. Yes, I'm active here and will try to be good about keeping in touch - during the week is hard, but we can definitely touch base on the weekend! Much luck with your dad's health,

Laura

Hi! Wow! how time flies when we're having fun!

I've been really busy and enjoying the festivities of the Easter season (which is my favorite holiday by the way) and now I'm about to get ready for some over night company that will be here in the early afternoon tomorrow then we will be getting ready to go to the coast for some fun and relaxation. When the sun comes out...I go out! It's great!

How about you? Have you been busy or are you getting ready for BBQ season/summer which will be upon us very soon now!

I read that persimmons have high levels of fiber, potassium, magnesium, calcium and antioxidants which are all super weapons against atherosclerosis! Who knew?

Have a great week and a great Mother's Day on the 8th!
