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!

    Thanks for the soup, Dawn. It hit the spot. Feeling a bit better each day, but it's slow in recovering. Hope you are doing well.

    Thank you Dawn!! Love the Goodie snowman.So glad you stopped in to say hi! I seem to lack minutes and hours in the day to keep up with all that's going on. Even though we don't have snow here, we have had a freeze a couple nights ago and it was possible last night but only down to 36. The temps are beginning to climb again to get hot.

    Hope this finds you well and all is going good for you. Did you have a good Christmas? Have a blessed new year. Hugs!

    Thank you Dawn! Pneumonia: much better, not coughing any more. But still very tired and the doctor says it could take as much as 6 months to fully recuperate... So I need to be patient. Fitbit: I am in competition with my son and the grand kids, so I am really moving! I am also doing some challenges with several Spark friends. Great incentive. How are YOU doing?
