My Journey


My Journey


I ran across Sparkpeople quite by accident, in March 2007 , while I was searching for places to help me lose weight.
I joined and it has been a God send.
I have learned so much. I was in starvation mode from eating only700 or 800 calories a day for many years, so it took me about a yearr to retrain my brain and eat more food and drink water.
Btu after the year was up, the weight came off pretty quicikly.
I just wish it did not ...

My Journey


I ran across Sparkpeople quite by accident, in March 2007 , while I was searching for places to help me lose weight.
I joined and it has been a God send.
I have learned so much. I was in starvation mode from eating only700 or 800 calories a day for many years, so it took me about a yearr to retrain my brain and eat more food and drink water.
Btu after the year was up, the weight came off pretty quicikly.
I just wish it did not come back on so easily.

I was a member of the Red Hot Chili Steppers and Roaring Red Rocketeers on the BLC team serving as co-captain and then captain.
Then I stepped down for one round, and started a new team on Sprks- "Super Charged and Ready- Team Biggest Loser."
Lots of positive energy; a great bunch of people and all of us getting healthy.
I came back to the BLC , with the Light Blue Bombshells and lthn sat out a round , and now I am with the Ivory Falcons , having first served as co-captain and now am captain of the team.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

Hi, Donna! I am sorry to have been MIA but my DB had another of his history of heart attacks a week ago today. He was on life support for 2/3 days and while his life is not in jeopardy right now, he was wtihout oxygen for a period of time and so it is a slow process trying to assess just where he is cognitively. He didn't know who I was, but had a conversation about the bag that I was carrying with books in it that would make sense about anyone else but me. He was told yesterday morning that I would be visiting, and asked about "Tammy and Joe" - Joe being my DH - and asked how Joe was doing. [A week and a half ago Joe was diagnosed with a possible blood clot.] So he was remembering certain things. Last night he asked for a nicotine patch. So it will likely be a rough ride for awhile, and right now we are trying to have some kind of family plan in place...but I still want to do BLC and hopefully Ivory Falcons!
