karen's journey with spark

Hi. After 22 years of slowly piling it on I have decided to get healthier for me. For the last five years I've got worse and worse as life got to me. I'm climbing out of depression and decided I'd like to get back to being myself again and enjoying life for myself. That means getting healthy again.

Hi. After 22 years of slowly piling it on I have decided to get healthier for me. For the last five years I've got worse and worse as life got to me. I'm climbing out of depression and decided I'd like to get back to being myself again and enjoying life for myself. That means getting healthy again. I'm blessed with three lovely grown children, a devoted partner and some other wonderful familly and friends. I'd like to enjoy them for a few years more. I suffer many physical ailments, nearly all related to morbid obesity. On the good side I've improved my fitness dramatically over the last year. (Only because it was so bad.)
14/nov.07 Three months into Spark. I've cut out diet soda alltogether(from 2 litresa day), drink at least 2 litres H20 every day. Eat at least 2 pieces fruit a day (from 0) and increased vegie intake dramatically. Increased fibre intake. Still binge occasionally when I get depressed, but overall I'm much more happy and positive. Do 10-20 mins stretch and exercise a day - very mild but it's a start. Am doing some walking and swimming..

Back in 2008, you left a supportive comment on my blog and left several since. I just wanted to drop by to say thank you. I have not been the greatest SPFriend, but I'm trying to change that. It's because of SPFriends like you I was empowered to lose 152 pounds. If there is anything I can do to guide and support you, please let me know! emoticon

I would like to invite you to a Party, A Planning Party. We need to get going and start making plans to make this year the best year of our life. I know we should have done this a week or so ago. It is never too late. So let's get going.
Hugs, Vickie

Really glad to have you on the team People with Disabilities on Fixed Income.

I am new at helping to co-lead the group and would love to help in any way that I can.

Have a great day!

Sally
