Attitude is Everything!

I struggled with losing weight for most of my life. I was only 10-20 pounds overweight until I had my 3rd child. I had a difficult pregnancy and was 60 lbs. above my ideal weight at 9 months. After she was born, I just couldn't seem to lose any pounds, even though I was still in my 20's. Five years later, my mother died, and in grieving, I gained even more weight. That was over 15 years ago.

That was over 15 years ago.
I had some successes and haven't reached my highest weight again, but by 2010, I was unable to lose at all no matter what I did, in fact I was gaining weight. I became a vegetarian that spring - then began eating mostly vegan and I stopped gaining...but I still wasn't losing.
The more I've improved my diet, the more improvement I see in my health and now that I've started following the Eat To Live plan, I am seeing even more health progress and weight loss success! Woo Hoo!

Hello, SparkFriend,
Gryffindor emoticon Hufflepuff emoticon Ravenclaw emoticon Slytherin emoticon
I realize you have teams that work and teams that don't. Sometimes trying out a new team finds a fit.

Today, I am going through my SparkFriend's list, on my SparkPage and sending out an invitation. Please come check out our HOGWARTS Winter*Term Owl*Mail team (located as my 1st team under my teams). It is set up for a waiting list to the upcoming winter*term. We have a 12 wk challenge (multiple choices) designed for your own personal 'fit' and, Challengers of HOGWARTS winter*term 2, is coming up, on December 1st. It is a private team, so you need to join the owl*mail team if you want to be Sorted.

I created a blog about it, today, so please stop in and read it. If you're looking for a really refreshing new way to focus on your goals and form new friendships plus join in the celebrations of the seasons in a *fun* virtual online wizarding world ... please come.

Join me for a whole new adventure.
Annie
