I enjoy working out in the garden, walking with the dogs, but lately the arthritus has gotten worse. So my weight has piled on. I can't do what I liked to do . It is like the "what came first ? the arthritus or the weight but what ever they both need to get along so I am going to lose some weight and that should help the other . I was using the arthritis as an excuse not too get up and get moving. Just with small amount of excercising have done, I find I feel better. So I will take it just a day at a time, somedays min by min but will do whatever.

I have been a member since Dec 3 o7. I have not lost alot of weight, but have lost some inches. I have also met and made friends with some very nice people. I love this site, and love all the information I have gained. It is a slow process, but well worth it. Slow and easy . I have been discouraged at times, but by writing it out, it has helped me to see why I have always had trouble loosing weight. Once you see where and why , it becomes easier, and yes I fall once in a while, and not 100% faithful to my exercise program, and I whine and cry, but with all the support you have to get back on track, as you see everyone is having the same struggles, so you are not alone. Which makes it easier to stay on program.

Aug 1. I have not been 100% on the program for the last couple of months but have still managed to lose some more weight. Although things have been stressful I have used what I learned here about emotional eating and although I was tempted I stayed away from the comfort foods . Sometimes I did give in but for the most part I stayed on course. I kept drinking the water and watched what I ate, the only part I did not do was the exercise as it was just impossible . I am happy about the progress I have made and it is all due to the articles and information and the support of the people here, as you can not do this alone.
I am back now for good. I will not reach my goal this month, but I am staying with this and will reach it by Dec. So thank you Spark People keep up the good work

    THE JELLY BEAN PRAYER

    Red is for the blood he gave.
    Green is for the grass he made.
    Yellow is for the sun so bright.
    Orange is for the edge of night.
    Black is for the sins we made.
    White is for the grace he gave.
    Purple is for the hour of sorrow.
    Pink is for our new tomorrow.
    A bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet
    is a prayer, a promise, a loved oneís treat.
    May the joy of Christís Resurrection fill your heart and bless your life!

    I asked God for a rose and he gave me a garden.
    I asked God for a drop of water and he gave me a lake.
    I asked God for an angel and he gave me you
    Happy Valentine's Day.
