Board Posts the first line of a song I learned at church camp when I was a child, but as I sit here trying to decide what to put on my page that's what comes to mind.

My name is Alice, I haven't been on Spark for a long time, somehow I lost my drive. I still don't have much but something compelled me today 11-1-12 to come back and try again. I have a long way to go but as the saying goes a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step so if I can focus again on one step at a time eventually I'll get there.

Member Since: 4/28/2006

My Goals:
My main goal was and is to become healthier physically and mentally and if I can loose weight too that will be an added bonus. I have had a lot of changes in my life over the years and need to get focused on who I am and where I am headed.

My Program:
I started out walking before I found out about Spark and started dieting too. As I learn and get healthier I''m sure my program will be constantly changing.

Two dynamic, inspiring women I met here on Spark are the reason I came back, that and I know it's a good program, if I will do it and not let myself get discouraged.

Personal Information:
My name is Alice.

Age Now: 57

Height: 5 foot

I am an American
From: Texas

contact me through sparkmail and I'll tell you how to find me on facebook

I have three grown kids, if I count my son-in-law. And I also have a super grandson. I lost my husband of 26 years to cancer in 2005. There are days when I still feel all alone even though I have a huge family that is very close.

Other Information:
My life focuses around my faith in God. Without faith I don't think I would have reason or will to keep going - my biggest regret is that I feel I failed to instill this in my kids.

Something I would like to tell everyone is enjoy your loved ones while you can. Never miss an opportunity to say I love you...and don''t fuss over small stuff that won''t matter in the long run anyway.

    I stopped by your sparkpage. Your image profile picture and name made me click on your page. I read it along with the comments you wrote under Other Information. I too have regrets about the same thing that you shared. A few days ago I heard someone say that God is doing a thousand things that you can not see and know nothing about. He is at work. We can trust that.

    Have a great day and blessings!

    Things have been a little hectic since summer. I lost my Father in July and we (Brother and I) have been working on settling the estate.

    Please forgive me for not being around. I will try my best to do better.

    I went to The Kansas City Women of Faith Conference this past weekend and am so filled up to overflowing with His love. It is just what I needed after the past 4 months.

    Hugs, Sunny
