WELCOME TO MY SPARK

I've been a Spark member since the end of 2005 and during that time I have lost over 130 pounds. More importantly, I have improved my eating and exercise habits for the rest of my life!

My primary goal has been to get my health back. In 2004 I started suffering from extreme fatigue, got sick all the time, and was rapidly gaining weight for no apparent reason and reached a high weight of 287. In March 2005 I was diagnosed with Auto-immune Thyroiditis, but it still took several ...
I've been a Spark member since the end of 2005 and during that time I have lost over 130 pounds. More importantly, I have improved my eating and exercise habits for the rest of my life!

My primary goal has been to get my health back. In 2004 I started suffering from extreme fatigue, got sick all the time, and was rapidly gaining weight for no apparent reason and reached a high weight of 287. In March 2005 I was diagnosed with Auto-immune Thyroiditis, but it still took several more month of medication before there was any improvement in symptoms. Between the meds and the improved eating and exercise habits I have learned at Spark, I have my health back and now feel better and have more energy than I've had in years.

I had maintained at my goal weight for about 4 years. Then I was diagnosed with cancer. Between forced inactivity, medications, and quitting smoking, I've gained about 30-40 pounds back that I don't need. So I am back here at Spark People to take it off again.

Just stopping in to let you know that I am back...I have been away from Sparkpeople for awhile now and I am sorry that I left. This is a wonderful place to interact with people who really understand where I am in life and know all about my struggles...people who really "get" me. Anyway, just wanted to check in so that you wold know I am here. I have updated my page so that my current info is up and added some current photos as well. Hope to hear from you soon. Much love and "losing" blessings...Connie

Thank you Sam. I consider that to be just about the highest compliment I could be paid. I am not one to say whatever people want to hear, but rather what is useful. That gets me into a bit of hot water from time to time, but I have no intention of changing my ways :-)

Thanks for your comment.
