A setback is only a setup for a comeback.

I lost 112.50 lbs. to reach my goal about 6 years ago and have maintained ever since. Believe me, maintaining a weight loss is much tougher than losing it in the first place! I have lost & gained & lost and gained & lost over 100 lbs. several times.

This time is different. I am no longer going to give up even when I have a gain or two. I will stick to this journey for the rest of my life! There is just no other choice - giving up is just NOT AN OPTION!!!

Judy, thank you so much for taking the time to read and respond to the quotes that I update each day in my current status that you see from our friend feed. Not only do I use them to jump-start my day in a positive manner, but I enjoy sharing them in hopes of helping and serving others throughout their spark journey. It is my way of letting you know to never give up on your journey and to believe in yourself as much as I do in you. I appreciate your support and encouragement. You are an INSPIRATION to me! Have a wonderful weekend!


~ Monika ~ emoticon

Good morning Judy! Thanks for your note! Yesterday, I dipped 240 pretzels sticks in white chocolate. I colored it pink and blue and had matching sprinkles. The pretzels are only about 4 inches long. I put several in each bag for a table favor at the shower. We don't know what sex the baby is. Their not finding out and want to be surprised! Our son and daughter- in-law will be home for the weekend! It should be a fun weekend! Enjoy your weekend! Summer seems to just be flying by! I wish it would slow down! Take care! emoticon emoticon

Hi Judy! emoticon Thanks for commenting on my Need to Change It Up blog. I agree and have been reading about the benefits of breaking up exercise through the day so I figured I would try this approach. I started TODAY and had my first walk this morning! I appreciate your thoughts and encouragement. Have a blessed day! emoticon Karen
