I have learned that in order to change yourself you have to be ready. You can't join a fantastic website like SparkPople and expect it to magically motivate you. You have to have the motivation to make the changes, or it just won't work.

I joined this site over a year ago, but I wasn't really ready to make changes when I did...........and then my weight escalated. One day I stepped on the scale and reality sunk in when the scale read 283 lbs. I could imagine the scale saying "move it're stressing me out."

One of my best friends had asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding and I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to lose 20 lbs. With help from my supervisor at work I started a walking program and she suggested some ways that I could eat better. So, I started working at it. I am pleased to say that by the time the wedding came around I had lost almost 30 lbs.

Unfortunately the Holiday's got the better of me and I gained 5 of those lbs. back, but it's a new year and I am ready to go. I am armed with books like "The Spark" and "Skinny Bitch" and I am determined to meet my weight loss goals.

    Bless Them Abundantly: A Veteran’s Day Prayer

    Dear Lord,
    Today we honor our veterans,
    worthy men and women
    who gave their best
    when they were called upon
    to serve and protect their country.
    We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
    for their unselfish service
    in the continual struggle
    to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
    and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
    Bless them abundantly
    for the hardships they faced,
    for the sacrifices they made,
    for their many different contributions
    to America’s victories
    over tyranny and oppression.
    We respect them, we thank them,
    we honor them, we are proud of them,
    and we pray that you will watch over
    these special people
    and bless them with peace and happiness.
    In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
