I would like to invite you to a Party, A Planning Party. We need to get going and start making plans to make this year the best year of our life. I know we should have done this a week or so ago. It is never too late. So let's get going.
Hugs, Vickie

"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
- George Cooper

Have a Fantastic Friday,

Sammi, I'm glad to see that you are coming back around Sparks. We miss you in camp. Vickie mentioned that Pat is back, the one that originated our camp. It is so good to have her back as well. Looks like you are doing great.

Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Linda
