GO LOVELY LIMES! The most awesome BLC Team!!!

On my 50th birthday I weighed 460+ & was in a wheel chair because I couldn't support my own body. After my doctor said "LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE", I joined SparkPeople in May 2009 & started water aerobics in earnest. It's been an up & down battle. The scale is not my friend. It's so hard to lose 5 pounds and so easy to GAIN 40. It's been a great 6 years. I still have a LONG way to go but am down well over 150 pounds & teach water aerobics & ...

On my 50th birthday I weighed 460+ & was in a wheel chair because I couldn't support my own body. After my doctor said "LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE", I joined SparkPeople in May 2009 & started water aerobics in earnest. It's been an up & down battle. The scale is not my friend. It's so hard to lose 5 pounds and so easy to GAIN 40. It's been a great 6 years. I still have a LONG way to go but am down well over 150 pounds & teach water aerobics & swim lessons at the Ypool that has saved my life! All I can say is NEVER GIVE UP!

Thanks to my SERIOUS SISTERS & some awesome SparkTeam Families, I am working my "weigh down" the scale. TOGETHER we can do what we could never to alone! Feel free to ask for an invite to any of my teams.
No matter what.... just STAY SERIOUS & LOVE YOURSELF HEALTHY!
GO LOVELY LIMES!

I am 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.

DAWNWATERWOMAN Is grateful for my swim students!!! Preschoolers & Adults! They have no idea how much I LOVE them & how much joy I get from teaching them. THANK YOU!!!

I believe that your students discern how much you love them, Dawn. Love is something we are conscious of even when it is not expressed in words. Actually, I rather have love demonstrated to me through actions than words alone. Of course, both are to ve valued.

We can sense genuine love - there is no better feeling in this whole world. I figure that your students not only recognize how much you love them, they love you just as much in return.

Hi Dawn - of course you can spread it about - after all the Chair Marching was your idea to start with many aeons ago!! As far as I am concerned the more people it helps the better - I keep asking Sparkpeople to do more for the less fit members and older members but decided that if they won't someone has to!! Its not as pretty as theirs are but I have less same resources than them even though they keep saying they have few resources!!

Hi Dawn, So awesome to see the Lime team is going strong. Back in 2006-2008 (or thereabouts) I was a lime too! I was so inspired by my lime teammates. Go Limes!

Eleven more days until your Paul & you fly over the Atlantic? emoticon

If so, I wish y'all a most wonderful time, Dawn!

May you shine for Jesus each second throughout your trip of a lifetime!

Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

God bless!
