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) 475 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 an awesome private Spark Team that helps me with my program. The team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends It is a "friendship" team that provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

GO LOVELY LIMES!

    I was getting ready for bed, but before I did I pushed a little harder, hand washed dishes in the sink, put on a load of laundry, mopped the kitchen floor, prepped breakfast, and put the garbage out. It helps me to look forward to waking up this way. And while doing chores my mind was on you. And thinking about you, I became filled with love and joy. You have that effect on people. You are beautiful on the inside and outside. Anyone who has you for a friend is truly blessed. Before going to sleep I wanted you to know this. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for cluing me in on the cardio and strength times - guess I copied that wrong! I wondered where that was at - I thought maybe it wasn't counted anymore! I will get the hang of it! Appreciate the help!
