Nothing feels so good.... as Peace feels.

I started on Spark in September 2011. I had good success for about a year, then I struggled with up/down, up/down. I lost 100# when I was 60, then gained it all back, the lost 100# when I was about 70 - and now have gained it all back. I really want to be healthy, but I give up if I even have a taste of sweet! God has amazingly kept me healthy despite the abuse I have done to my body.

The most important thing for me is to count calories... when it comes to losing weight. I read a post the other day the weight loss is 80% what you eat and 20% exercise. I always said, that the older one gets, weight depends solely on food intake...

So here we are in 2015 and I am miserable, can't bend over to put on socks without feeling miserable! I decided that I needed to do something drastic, so starting 1/5/15, I did just that with a 48 fast. The less I eat, the less hungry I am.... Interesting!

I'm thanking God for His strength, His leading, and His protection through all my ups and downs.
