Hi There!

My life has been a constant struggle with the scale...I guess we have all been there. :o)

Back in 1993 I lost a lot of weight (50 lbs) with a Church group known as the Circle of Discipline (COD). I enjoyed this group and its fellowship. Like everything in life, there are always changes, people move and groups cease.

Even though I know what to do for myself as far as eating and exercising, I just couldn't seem to get started on changing my ways.

One day my sister clued me in to Spark People (SP)and when I finally checked it out, I was totally hooked. It was just the 'Spark ' that I needed to get motivated in changing my ways and I found it with SP. YAHOO!

In my signature box, I've included a quote from HEBREWS 12:11, it was one of the verses that we were required to memorize for COD ~ haven't forgotten it either :o) I hope that it helps anyone that may be struggling in the beginning. Its all about discipline and being patient.
So hang in there and be strong. It will happen. ;o)

    I'm glad you had a wonderful cruise! emoticon
    I recently connected with an old friend that I saw once a year in Wildwood. Our families just happen to go the same time every year and it was the same with us...I haven't talked to her in over 25 years and we just picked up just the same as we always did! Just like you and you HS friend did :)
    Glad to hear that your back is feeling better too!
    Keep that twinkle and it will be a full spark soon emoticon

    May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks, may your heart be as light as a song, may each day bring you bright, happy hours that stay with you all the year long.

    Sorry to hear that you got "bumped out" of attending RR! But does sound like you turned it into a great day anyway! The weather has been so sunshiny beautiful lately!!! It was so nice sitting at my son's game in short sleeves instead of two coats and a hat! haha

    Hope you a a happy day emoticon
