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.

I just read a cure for bad Mondays!

It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground
sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma
suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the
brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy
experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!

My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse
ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.

Have a great week and remember to stay focused!

emoticon Hello again, I'm back to see how you are doing and to let you know I'm thinking of you.

Ever wonder what people 'used' to do to get rid of dandruff? Me either, but I'm going to share it with you anyways! LOL
I myself used this formula to lighten my hair, but now that I'm older, I find I already have light hair! LOL

They used a natural rinse made from 3 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice and a cup of water or massaged salt all over the scalp before shampooing!

I hope you have a really great week!

Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you? I don't hang out in facebook too much because I have too many other internet things going on; but I'm so glad that you are doing well.

I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.

Hey... Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on!
