    I was reading some older emails today and saw that you had joined our 50+ Members Team so I thought I would stop by, say hi, and welcome you to the team...better late than not at all. You will receive lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Just post any prayer requests, questions, comments or suggestions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    You have come to the right place. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I want to see you accomplish your goals. Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. I will be here for you and try to help you on this journey to your goals. YOU can do this!!!
    Commit yourself to constant self-improvement the joy is truly in the journey! You are creating a body that is strong and balanced!
    Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8 - 8oz glasses a day) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of weight loss and lowering numbers. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. Invest in a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you currently take each day. Before long you will be adding steps just to see how many you can do and how far you can go. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! YOU can do this!!! It's good to meet and have you with us.
    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you. Take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
    God's blessings to you.
    Hugs,
    Helen

    "If you planted hope in a heart today in any hopeless heart,
    If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
    If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
    If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray,
    Then your day was well spent."

    Thanks for your comment on my blog post! I've been shopping at farmers markets for years too. I was not sure how I'd do with nearly eliminating dairy, grains and legumes but I haven't wanted them since I made the decision to squeeze them all into that small point at the top. So, that's good.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for adding me as a friend--love your flowers and your kitties--we have a long hair calico, Phoenix, who I love dearly, but she is getting old--I figure she is at least 15, she is very small boned--probably only weighs 5-6 lbs if you discount all the hair--she still eats well--she just never has been a big cat--She and our other cat do not get along--both cats have been inherited from our sons as they did not take them with them. Are you the one who also posted about Star wars, Star Trek and Lord of the Rings? I see you love Sci fi, too. I am a big Dick Francis fan--love his books--sounds like your trip will be fun.
