I have lost 25 #''s of the 50#''s I need to lose. I made a huge hiking goal this summer!! 25 #''s more to go and I know I can do it. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things & people I cannot change! The courage to change the one I can! And the wisdom to know it''s ME!

Member Since: 2/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,082

My Goals:
To get healthy and stay off meds so I do not have to be like all the elders in my family..... You have to learn something from somewhere.


My Program:
Following my spark calories and nutrients guidelines walking as many evenings as I can fit it in with my 2 dogs... THEY LOVE IT!



Personal Information:
I am 42 years old and have been slightly overweight my entire adult life, and I am tired of the extra 50# I carry with me all the time. So it is time to say BYE to the 50# that has been holding me back for years.


Other Information:
I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.

I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk’s lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor’s children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.

I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived. -Marjorie Hinckley

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨) Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, 16 feelings post, a safe place, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ emoticon (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon (¸.•´ (¸.•´ ♥¸.•´¸¸.• (¸.•´ (¸.•*¨ (¸.¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. You are- WONDERFUL-cuz you’re you!!!
