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!

    Hi Dawn,
    thanks for stopping by and reading my blog page. You asked what kind of book I am writing. The one I am working on is a James Patterson-type mystery. In fact, I just finished a video writing class of his. He's my writing hero! MY previous books were all in the romance and romantic suspense genre, so this one is a big change for me. Wish me luck!

    I envy you getting to do all the water aerobics. I love the water! However, my YMCA's hours for swimming just don't work with my work schedule. Maybe when I FINALLY retire for good! :)
