I'm nearly fifty and don't want to feel it....I want to LIKE the way I look and feel. I want to set goals and achieve them, and not just achieve them, but build on them.

NOV 11th, 2010
I AM FIFTY - and I feel GREAT!!! Finding Spark has been one of the most wonderful blessings of my life. Since starting SparkPeople, I have lost 43 lbs. and have commenced a journey to become the best me I can possibly be. I am taking better care of my health, exercising and running, continuing to eat healthy and maintain my weight loss. I am also learning to practice the same principles that helped me reach my goal weight to achieve goals in other areas of my life; ie., financially, professionally and with organization and time management. I am just beginning to comprehend how vast my options in life are and what I can do to achieve my dreams while maintaining a balance in my day to day life. I am becoming happier, more content and self assured as life goes on and I intend to keep Spreading the Spark.

I can hardly believe I've been Sparking for three years now! Still, I learn something new everyday. Sometimes I think it was easier losing the weight than it is keeping it off, but the rewards are so worth it. My goal this year is to get back of the few pounds that I have gained back and to get more consistently active. I am also planning to then start school and get my certification as a personal trainer and continue on from there to become a physical therapist. It is amazing how many areas of my life that have been Sparked by this program. Eager to find out what new roads it is going to lead me down!

    I have been thinking about Father's Day this weekend. I lost my Dad in 1980. I do not think I will ever get over missing him.
    But We also have an ever-present Heavenly Father. This song reminds me again and again of how much He loves each of us and how vast His love is. It was sung by a group called Sierra.

    YOUR LOVE
    Your love is an ocean
    Too vast to comprehend
    Your love is a mystery
    One I'll never understand
    You see what I can't see
    As You watch me from above

    Everything I'll ever need
    Everything I long to be
    The very air I breathe
    Is found in Your love
    Deeper than the deepest sea
    Your living water runs in me
    My very heartbeat
    Is found in Your love

    Your love is the rising sun
    That burns from dusk to dawn
    Your love is the silver moon
    In darkness Your light is drawn
    You hold eternity
    And at the same time You hold me

    I am consumed to think that You
    In all Your Majesty
    Would be consumed with me

    During this season of Lent, I always need a reminder to focus on WHO I am living for. This song by Francesca Battiselli spoke to me this week. I hope it will minister in a meaningful way to you also.

    "Write Your Story"

    They say
    You're the King of everything
    The One who taught the wind to sing
    The Source of the rhythm my heart keeps beating

    They say
    You can give the blind their sight
    And You can bring the dead to life
    You can be the hope my soul's been seekin'

    I wanna tell You now that I believe it
    I wanna tell You now that I believe it
    I do, that You can make me new, oh

    I'm an empty page
    I'm an open book
    Write Your story on my heart
    Come on and make Your mark

    Author of my hope
    Maker of the stars
    Let me be Your work of art
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    Write Your story, write Your story
    Come on and write Your story, write Your story
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    My life
    I know it's never really been mine
    So do with it whatever You like
    I don't know what Your plan is
    But I know it's good, yeah

    I wanna tell You now that I believe in
    I wanna tell You now that I believe in
    In You, so do what You do, oh

    I'm an empty page
    I'm an open book
    Write Your story on my heart
    Come on and make Your mark

    Author of my hope
    Maker of the stars
    Let me be Your work of art
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    Write Your story, write Your story
    Come on and write Your story, write Your story
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    I want my history
    To be Your legacy
    Go ahead and show this world
    What You've done in me
    And when the music fades
    I want my life to say

    I let You write Your story, write Your story
    Write Your story, write Your story

    I'm an empty page
    I'm an open book
    Write Your story on my heart
    Come on and make Your mark

    Author of my hope
    Maker of the stars
    Let me be Your work of art
    Won't You write Your story on my heart

    Write Your story, write Your story
    Come on and write Your story, write Your story
    Won't You write Your story on my heart"
