The LOVELY LIMES BLC TEAM FAMILY
my SERIOUS SISTERS
& SPARKPEOPLE are saving my life.

My journey with SparkPeople began in May 2009 when I weighed somewhere around (more than but the scale didn't go that high) 460 pounds. My doctor advised me to LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE. Because of that I went straight to the YMCA & got involved with their aquatic department. Thanks to water aerobics & swimming, I am healthier today than I have been in years. I not only participate but I teach WA & swim classes daily. Exercise in the water is the BEST way for me to lose weight & stay healthy without too much pain.

One day at a time, my life is changing for the better. I am blessed to be a part of a few awesome team families. The support & encouragement that I find on these teams is wonderful. I am PASSIONATE about leading the LOVELY LIMES BLC team famiy.
I am also involved in 2 awesome private Spark Teams that help me with my program. The 1st team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends The 2nd team is called: The Path to Freedom--Loving Ourselves Healthy BOTH teams are "friendship" teams. The 1st provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. The 2nd is similar but geared towards people that HAVE or NEED to lose 200 lbs or more. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

GO LOVELY LIMES!

    Thank you for the Thanksgiving blessing ! I am doing well except for struggling with my LCHF diet. I eat too many calories yet due to the anxiety of the holidays, getting ready for my mom's birthday, work, etc. I still push hard in exercise to make up for the calories though. Push onward !

    Hi, Thought I would check you out for the scavenger hunt.

    Is winter your favorite season? Have you traveled to at least 10 other countries? How about a musical instrument and what color are your eyes and hair? Have you been to Yellowstone? and how many pets to you have?

    I play guitar and I hate winter. I love to read and grew up in the country. I have performed on stage.

    I play french horn too! I started with trumpet, and then just added french horn because our very small town band only had 1 french horn player, and she wasn't very confident or good. I remember switching instruments in the middle of a piece to do the french horn solo at contest one year. We got a 1 and one of the judges even commented about the versatility of the first chair trumpet player. I was excited and embarrassed all at once lol.

    Have a great day! Go find those answers!
