Time sure does fly, hard to believe I've been a member of Spark for 6 years and facing the 7th.

I've had many ups and downs as to how dedicated I've been, but as all Spark members know the road to health and wellness is bumpy.

This year I lost a job I had been at for almost 15 years, but it was a blessing in disguise as my new employer is a company to really have a career and they stronly promote health and wellness with incentives and challenges. Since starting in April (and really since I joined my first challenge in June) I've lost 14 pounds. I feel better than I have in years. I'm thankful every day to work for a company that genuinely cares about the associates and their families. They understand the need for work life balance.

In the coming year, I will continue my quest to be the best me that I can be, which will never end as we all have room to improve in whatever may be ailing us at the moment.

God bless you all as we continue this journey together.

    Hello my sweet friend!!!

    Here it is Wednesday!!! Week is already 1/2 way over. Before we know it these days keep adding up and adding up and then like me, where did my goal go. I didn't meet it back in June. That is ok, all we have is today right? But it is important to make the days add up to make a week a month and so on and son on for our healthy bodies!!! emoticon

    Well, what W's did you have today

    If a bitter biting bittern bit a bigger bitter biting bittern, would the bigger bitter biting bitten bittern bite the bitter biting bittern back?

    Can you say that 3 times? emoticon

    Maybe this will me me bite a better bite? LOL emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Have a WONDERFUL rest of the week and you are doing a WONDERFUL job on your WONDERFUL journey.
