It's a great day to SPARK!

26 March 09: I can't believe it's been a year since I updated this page! Wow! Time flies. I had been doing quite well for a long time but last fall I started a new job and I can't get to the gym as much as I used to due to a long commute and a longer work day. So, I find myself with about 10 lbs that I need to get rid of. I WILL NOT buy bigger clothes! So, I started SPARKING again today. I know it works - I just have to DO IT!

20 March 08: The journey continues. It's not that hard, but the lifestyle changes are a part of my life. Smaller portions. Cardio 3 - 4 times per week. If I miss a day or two, it's okay. My body drives me to get back on track. I am so thankful to SP for being here to make this possible. I don't track all my food. I just track my fitness to get the points. And I keep coming back because perhaps I can help someone else who is just beginning this journey.

22 Nov 07: It really doesn't seem that long ago that I found SP and started on this journey. I am lean and healthy and although continue to stay committed to this new lifestyle. Fitness remains a priority even through job changes and different commitments in my life. I thought maintenance was going to be tough but it's not as hard as I thought it would be.


23 Oct 06: Well, I have arrived!! I turn 40 today and last week, I achieved my target weight of 125. I set my long-term goal: if I keep it off for TWO YEARS, I will buy myself a Harley! I feel great and shopping is fun instead of a drag! I sold four of my "fat" Gap jeans on eBay for $50! Yeehaw!

The most important thing I have learned so far on SP is that I have to always be conscious of eating on PURPOSE, not for any other reason. I have been blessed because I don't find that I eat for comfort, but there are moments when I miss desserts or "stupid food" like cheese curls! I eat them once in a while, as a small treat.

Glad you joined Tough Talk! And glad you're back to SP. You helped energize me, too, when I read your post. And, you're almost to your goal again. How wonderful!

On Veterans Day, we pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the men and women who in defense of our freedom have bravely worn the uniform of the United States.

From the fields and forests of war-torn Europe to the jungles of Southeast Asia, from the deserts of Iraq to the mountains of Afghanistan, brave patriots have protected our Nation's ideals, rescued millions from tyranny, and helped spread freedom around the globe. America's veterans answered the call when asked to protect our Nation from some of the most brutal and ruthless tyrants, terrorists, and militaries the world has ever known. They stood tall in the face of grave danger and enabled our Nation to become the greatest force for freedom in human history. Members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard have answered a high calling to serve and have helped secure America at every turn.
...

GEORGE W. BUSH

From one Veteran to another- thank you for your service!

Hi Lenore ... I see you found the banners. I wasn't sure my instructions would make sense ... I wrote them late at night through an after work fog! Nice to see you displaying the maintenance banner.
