My weight have been fluxating up and down most of my life. My last three weight trickers was when I had surgery on my neck that left me with nerve damage which lead up to other problems my looseing my job, end up disable and not able to drive(haven't drove in 8 yrs). It just added to fibromyalgia, chronic pain syndrome, degenerative bone disease in my spine, knees, shoulders.
Second tricker was when I lost my son in 2002.
Third tricker was when I lost my mother on my Birthday, March 10,04, while holding her in my arms.

I heard about Sparkpeople on TV. I like what I saw and read. The people I've met on Sparkpeople and the Sparkpeople Teams are awsome.
I love how I can keep track of all my goals without the hassle. Especially how I can plan my meals.

I have been on a yoyo mostly due to health problems but now that I know what Sparkpeople can do for me and how helpful everyone are there is no stopping me.

Thanks everyone for your support.

SOULCOLLAGESUE

emoticon Ooooh, I regret that it's taken awhile emoticon to officially say hello emoticon , but I promise I had good reasons (explained below)!

emoticon you for commenting on my April 5, 2010 daily Spark, "Envisioning Your Future with a Collage and Some Friends." It IS fun! Did you end up looking into it?

I've added you as Friend, and look forward to learning about your Vision Collage journey since then...or, if life's been too busy, of offering my hand and inviting you to take that next step this autumn, through my favorite Vision Collage medium, SoulCollage®.

emoticon As another enthusiastic Sparker, I have a special offer created with you in mind!

I'm in the process of planning ongoing, online (probably monthly) workshops for SoulCollage® Life Vision card-making and card-journaling in community emoticon , ideally with an online classroom so we have live access to one another for that block of a few hours. My goal is to mirror the actual workshops I have facilitated in person. The difference is, in the Spirit of SparkPeople, these workshops are free! emoticon Monthly groups are by sign-up, so there is no obligation.

SoulCollage® through the venue of SparkPeople is so exciting to the SoulCollage.com community that we have the enthusiastic support of author Seena Frost and her staff. emoticon On top of THAT, KaleidoSoul creator (and Sparker) Anne Marie Bennett asked to co-lead emoticon our SparkSoulCollage® this time around. emoticon

Okay, okay, I've been MIA emoticon after jumping into the Spark pool last year in spring emoticon . But, hey, a baby arrived emoticon (grandson) who needed "daycare," so my absence has been honorable (and fun!). On top of that, I've recently rescued a Golden Retriever emoticon . I call them my two golden B-Boys (Brock and Bradyn).

Please, please say I can count you in! emoticon (I equally welcome hearing if it is not a fit right now. I promise: No judgment or tears emoticon .)

emoticon Regardless of where your path leads, I hold you in affection and wish the best for you.
emoticon Sue

BEAUTY TIPS

Poem by Audrey Hepburn

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
