Since about age 14, my weight has been a yo-yo. Before that, my elderly neighbor would refer to me as "beanpole." My pod has certainly filled out! Every time I get within striking distance of a normal BMI, I start to put the weight back on. I discovered Spark People when I was in an upward spiral in May 2010. Update: Finally achieved this in October 2011 and what is even more amazing, have stayed at "normal".
Update 8/1/12 Have been consistent in slowly losing weight, need to get 6 more pounds off to get to MoM statis. Thank you friends for your encouragement in this journey.

Other Information:
In my 20's I was living a hippie lifestyle. I told God I didn't think he existed, but if he did, I would make a deal: "You leave me alone and I'll leave you alone." I am so thankful He didn't keep His end of the bargain. I had an aunt to die, which made me think about what would happen when I die. Became a believer in Jesus Christ at age 23.

    Wow! That colour-foam 5k sounds like it will be such fun! Maybe you can get a photo and share it with us - so inspiring for other people (especially those of us who are, you know, older!) I've never done a colour-run myself - but have enjoyed seeing the pictures.

    I was really pleased to see your message on my Spark page - thank you. xxxx

    Sharon sorry you have had such an aweful week this week with snow from hell, Weather here wasn't that bad this week, what was frustrating to me was having to walk on the edge of busy roads because the sdewalks were not shovel and the snowbanks are over my head.
    My page was decorated for spring for a SE for the yellow roses team- it was a choice of valentnes or spring I choose spring. Because it would be able to be left that way longer I don't have a lot of time to decorate my sprak page so when I change it I want it to be something that can stay there awhile.
