HELPING MYSELF BY HELPING OTHERS

Born in the first half of the last century, I have now been a member longer than some of the Spark coaches. That makes me an old-timer. I joined Spark in May of 2005, before the change to the current format.

What caused me to join was an attempt to lose weight brought on by a time of deep depression caused by PTSD.

I continue with Spark to help me focus on an important part of my life, and to continue to interact with all the quick and dedicated minds here at Spark ...

I continue with Spark to help me focus on an important part of my life, and to continue to interact with all the quick and dedicated minds here at Spark People.

While here, I have become an advocate of "Humor is the Best Medicine" philosophy and on most days I will have a blog post that is either funny, sarcastic or very droll.

Everyone is invited for some unplanned core muscle building through laughter!

My Program:
2012 & 2013 saw intermittent bouts with PTSD and Depression, but I did stay even during those two years. I am bound and determined to get back into the 100's this year.

Depression episodes were more than I expected in 2011. I put together a "Motivational Music" CD to help with down mornings. I did manage to keep off #5.5, which, I guess, is better than adding to my in January of 2011.

I WILL prove my Endo Wrong!

When I had polio as a child, they told me I'd never walk without a limp, either. I lettered in cross country, track and football - then went on to become an Army officer and combat vet.

Stubbornness can be a positive trait.

I'm a leader on another team. I read your note to us.
These things do not define you. They happened to you. And as with life, there's been so much more than that. It's great you find such service here for others reinforces your well being and health along the way. You ARE important to many people. You ARE doing very well.

Thanks for the treadmill! There are days when the ice forbids driving across the mountains.
