Fit for Life

I am Grateful for a full, rich and Blessed life!

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister’s suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became ‘serious’ two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT ...

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister’s suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became ‘serious’ two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT having to try on bathing suits…)

I continued to lose weight, partially because I couldn’t figure how to reset the nutrition tracker, partly because I increased my exercise and partly because I was not yet comfortable with my body. I lost 10 more pounds over the next 3 months, for a total of 35 pounds and settled into my ‘home shape.’

I celebrated a year anniversary of my before picture 5/24/10. Since that time I’ve fluctuated a few pounds and maintained a healthy BMI of 19-20.

I’ve found great friends with amazing stories, drive, determination and accomplishments on this site, and am honored to share in their victories and setbacks however small or large.

My goal is to be “Fit for Life”, so while I remain committed to healthy eating and exercise, I’ve expanded my horizons to include meditation. I am thoroughly enjoying my new journey, my new friends and my new adventure into blogging.

I hope all who visit my spark page, will find this site as rewarding as I have.

Update 01.30.12: I am starting on a new fat loss and muscle gain journey and shedding 10 'holiday' pounds.

Update 03.20.12: I am ThanksGiving for the miracles in my life as I continue on my healthy journey.

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog. Your comment and others as well as an e-mail from a Sparker were quite helpful to me. What I am starting to realize is that I may need different friends who have more compatible interests & personalities. As far as my husband, I don't want to switch him out for another! I do think there is a glimmer of hope there and I have to fan the flames. I had lost hope, but I have regained a teense bit because of all the support from Sparkers.

I have been trying to honor myself and have made good progress there recently. But somehow I have been expecting warmth from people that I am probably never going to comfortably bond with. I have begun to realize that I have made efforts for them to accept and like me and to fit in, I guess. This really has been a waste of time and energy on my part and also does a disservice to me as a human being. Not everyone's going to like me or even show me respect, attention & consideration. I can't control people. Oh well....there are a lot of people out there to be friends with!
