Winning the battle! 18 Months with SP and Proud!

Updated 9/22/2009
Winning the battle of maintaining! Who would have thought that once at your goal the real battle would begin. What a journey! The 5 pound window is no longer the barrier to the outside, it is now the looking glass into wonderland!

Everytime I come back to the low side of my 5 pound window, I learn more and more that my tools learned are allowing me to control my weight. Thank you Sparks! I will never go back to the old me- EVER.

I DID IT! I made my goal. 15 months with Sparks and 86 pounds gone with Sparks. AND, I am now a MOTIVATOR!

Grab life at every chance and be the wind beneath your own wings.

Be strong and ALWAYS BELIEVE!

A year ago I took up the challenge to join Sparks! At first, it was just another gimic, in my mind. But it isn't a gimic, it is a life saving tool that allowed me to LEARN to be healthy, LEARN to trust myself, LEARN how to lose weight, LEARN to LIVE!

Thank you Sparks! Thank you for providing me the tools to TAKE BACK MY LIFE! I am forever thankful.

I am healthier at the age of 43 then I have ever been in my life. What a wonderful life I live.

Nov 2008 Update: Just turned 43, and, I am the healthier and smaller than I have been. I have been a size 18-22 for most of my adult life, even bigger but didn't wear anything with a size, just stretched out XXL stuff. I am now a size 6.

I just celebrated 8 months here with Sparks!

I Live, I won!

WOW you've had amazing weight loss. Are you at goal? Do you have one single standout tip that you could share with me? I want to start losing weight to match the changes I've made but I keep circling the same numbers on the scale.

Hello Catherine ,

It has been quite some time since we talked and I just wanted to stop in and say Hi emoticon and see how you are doing.
As you will see on my page I am still struggling to get below 200 but I am not giving up . You are such a great example and motivation to me that proves to me I can do this . I never made it to be under 200 this year for my B-day , so I am challenging myself to drop 42-pounds by the end of the year Dec. 31st to be exact. I have started this challenge on the challenge's thread and so far quite a few have come to join me on this journey. I am so very excited about this and them joning me , this I know will help to motivate me even more to reach my year end goal.

Well I hope that you and your family are doing well , and hope that you have a great weekend .

emoticon of the second half of the year.

Now that the year is half over it is time for all of use to look at the accomplishments we made in the first half and set some new goals for the second half of the year.
Have you thought of goals to complete by the end of the year?

I have my goaland it is still the same. To be a smokin' hot mama by the time we set up our emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon decorations.
