Hello My Name is LeWanda and welcome to my Spark world.

I currently suffer from high blood pressure, osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis and recently diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. A few years ago when I joined Spark in 2006, I would have never thought these things would eventually happen to me. Weight loss Surgery is now an option for me combined with good old fashion exercise and healthy eating to lose weight.

I am extremely confident and love being a full figured woman. Thanks to heredity I have a pear shape like most women in my family. I am not trying to be skinny just healthy. I hope to inspire other women my size to be confident and love themselves while being healthy.

I am tired of my legs, knees, ankles and lower back hurting to support my weight. I have been told by my doctors that weight loss will give me the relief I need. I have started to become winded from simple movements. I can not stand for long periods of time without my back and legs hurting. My goal is to lose 240 lbs.

Why is it that we get so frustrated with our weight loss efforts and just say to heck with it and go back to our unhealthy ways?

I don't have the answers but all I have is the conviction to Start Over Again. However, I can tell you that I am prepared to give it another shot because I Love Me, I Love my Family and most importantly I Love Being Here. Alive to share all of the Ups and Downs, Trials and Tribulations that I'm destined to experience. I want to Live. I want to Love. I want to do these things pain free and happy. We only get one Life to Live and I want to make sure it's the best life ever.

My Goals:
My goals are to lose over 240+ lbs, live a healthy lifestyle, love my curves and teach others to do the same.

My goal is also to be a positive role model for women my size who want to lose weight but don't know where to begin.

Ultimately, I would love to become a personal trainer for other plus size women.

My Program:
I have a Sleeve therefore my portions are controlled and very small.

I am still following a Low Carb and High Protein eating plan.

Most important of all exercise is the key to my success.



Personal Information:
I am a confident Big Beautiful Woman who realizes the effect weight can have on your body as you get older. I've always been okay with my body but as I get older my body is betraying me. Hmm? Maybe I have betrayed my body. The BETRAYAL stops TODAY!

I realize I can not do this alone and I need the support of family, friends and my Spark buddies.

Lately, I have been dreaming about walking again for fun or romance! I remember when a simple walk was second nature. Now it invokes fear and panic! I want this dream to come true.

I know I have a long journey but I am ready.

I also do not want to be skinny. I love my curves and big ole booty. I want to be healthy and strong! I want to live a healthy lifestyle pain free.



Other Information:
I'm looking for positive, committed, free spirited buddies to share this weight loss journey with!

I am looking for buddies who also have over 200 lbs to lose.

Let's Do This Together!

I hope that you are enjoying the summer and that your days are richly blessed filled with joy. I've been away from Spark for a while, I have been searching for my "voice" and was finally able to blog again today. Today's revelations have been a real eye opener - if you have a chance check it out. Look forward to hearing from you soon. All the best - "Sprink"
