Thanks for the ice cream goodie, Glenda! It is the same with me, doctors point out weight gain but seldom weight loss. They really need to notice the loss more than the gain. It may be encouraging to the patient to keep it up if someone, like a doctor, is noticing!
I hope you have a great week, and that you're able to stay cool in this overly hot summer! Give Connie & Kristina a belly rub and ear scritch from me! 2001 days ago
Here are the top-5 reasons I love this SparkPeople team: 1. Total strangers who cheer me on, many who become friends. 2. People who encourage and inspire. 3. People who share their strength when I don't have my own. 4. People who keep me trying and make me not want to give up. 5. We can never have too many of the above!
Other SparkPeople members have taught me: 1. Celebrate the little triumphs and focus on those. 2. Get up when you fall. 3. Share your success and help inspire others! 4. Share your struggles so others can inspire you. 5. It may go slow at times-- but as long as it's going, you’re doing something right.

Hi Glenda, welcome to the Emmaus Reunion Team!
Like you, I made my weekend years ago (1974, actually - it was called the Lutheran Cursillo then, now it's Sonshine Via de Cristo). We left the area within a month of my weekend, & I hooked up with a Catholic group after a while. Once I moved again, though, there wasn't a community nearby. Now that I'm back in Miami, I'm back where I belong - & I love it! What a blessing this community is!
I am just starting to read my hundreds of emails from today! What a surprise! I've read your SparkMessage and I promise to reread it when I've gone through all the messages. Holy Catfish! Best wishes,
