A New Direction

After many years of struggling to exit the obese category I've decided I needed an extra tool. I have opted to have gastric sleeve surgery. This was not a decision I made easily. It is not an easy way out. As a matter of fact, this is hard. I will still need to work hard to achieve my goals, but I will have an added tool to assist me. I finally feel I have a real hope for success!

My Goals:
I've been "dieting" since I'm 10 yrs. old. I feel it's my time to stop dieting and start living!!!! This is a lifestyle change to insure a longer, healthier and happier life for as long as God gives me!


My Program:
I plan on following the "SPARK" way of life! To me, that means, a positive way of life, regardless of which eating program I choose to follow. It means having a place to come to for support, guidance and friendships. A place I can ask questions, get and give advice and feel a sense of belonging.

Personal Information:
My name is Kathy. I'm 58 years young. I'm married and have 3 grown children and 5 young grandchildren. I work full time and love life. I want to have my "outside" match how I feel "inside".

Other Information:
New plan...make new plan!

hi Lady, I am posting a new challenge to lose 10 pounds in July come and join me..i need the encouragement, the support of all my spark friends. the link is below. ive been gone way too long and im back and ready to make it happen!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in July.
i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? that is too much! cant do it! But i here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while sitting and leg raises. very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!


click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!
