Thanks for checking out my page... I hope you'll stop by often.
Let me introduce myself... perhaps give you a little insight into who I really am... and why I'm here...
A few facts...My name is Lynne... I live in Kingsport, TN... I'm 59 going on 30... I'm single and unattached with the exception of my 2 teens... ages 17 & 19 who truly keep me young.
Like most of you.. I have tried just about every diet out there over the years... only to lose it... and then gain it back again... plus some!
After some much long overdue soul searching...
I'm finally ready & 100% commited to getting this extra baggage off... and keeping it off for good! ...
For me It's about being as healthy as I can be at this point in my life...
I'm determined to be at a healthy weight by this time next year... If I'm lucky it will be in time for my birthday in May.
Now that you know a little about me... I'll move on to why I'm here...
I have always had a difficult time reaching out for help...( probably my fear of rejection ) However...
I've come to realize that I can't do this alone! ...
I need Your Help!! ... in fact I NEED ALL the HELP I can get !!! ....I know much of the weight I have gained over the years was the result of my feeling lonely... due to circumstances...not by choice... Now I'm choosing to NOT be lonely anymore! Regardless of circumstances.. .(most of which have changed thankfully)
This is where you ...my future Sparks Buddies come in.....
I Thank God for the internet and a place like Sparks! ...
I am looking forward to making new friends here...
almost as much as I'm looking forward to being a lot lighter on my feet by this time next year.
I'ts really awesome not to have to travel this road alone anymore...
Sparks has me feeling very Excited & Motivated about this journey we are all on TOGETHER!
Here's to Making New Friends & Wishing Each One of You Many Blessings!
Becoming Healthy & Fit... Body & Spirit
1. Lose 10% of body weight=28.5 lbs
2. Lose 10 lbs monthly (min) until reaching my goal
3. Reach goal weight by June 11, 2010
4. Quit Smoking!
5. To become active socially
Since I'm just beginning.... I plan to take it one day at a time... and keep it simple. I am trying to focus on the journey not just the pounds lost .
I will basically follow the ADA guidelines for my meal planing as I am diabetic..I'm also starting out with gentle yoga exercises as I am out of shape and need to limber up a bit before doing anything to difficult.
I am a native Californian who moved to Beautiful East Tennessee in 1996.
I have been disabled for the past several years due to Fibromyalgia and deginerative discs.
I enjoy meeting new people, learning new things, spending time with my family & friends, weekend getaways, music, boating, swimming, movies, reading, computers, dancing, bingo, theater, roller coasters, and long drives to nowhere in particular.

"Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives. There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin."

Just stopping by from Rootin' for Ruby with a little motivation and encouragement! Did you know that there are only FIVE days left until Spring? Why not set yourself a mini goal that you can reach in the next 5 days?

Happy Wednesday, Sparkfriend! How is your week going so far? I hope you're staying strong when faced with all those holiday temptations out there. Remember, you're the one in charge, and you are stronger than you realize if you just dig deep. You're worth it!

I haven't seen you around the Ruby team lately so I thought I'd drop by to see how you're doing! I know the holiday season is rough...but don't give up! Even if you've had a bad month (or two or three), now is a great time to get your Spark back! I'm here if you need support!

What I learned from a snowman (Unknown author)
It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.
Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.
Wearing white is always appropriate.
Winter is the best of the four seasons.
It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection.
There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.
The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul.
It's not the size of the carrot, but the placement that counts.
We're all made up of mostly water.
You know you've made it when they write a song about you.
Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
Avoid yellow snow.
Don't get too much sun.
It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.
It's fun to hang out in your front yard.
Always put your best foot forward.
There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.
