Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

A Friend Is...
A friend is someone we turn to
When our spirits need a lift,
A friend is someone we treasure
For our friendship is a gift,
A friend is someone who fills our lives
With Beauty, Joy, and Grace
And makes the world we live in
A Better and Happier Place.


Sending hugs across the miles for you my friend.
Pat

Friendship is a gift,
That you choose to give away.

Friendship is a flower,
That grows stronger everyday.

Friendship is a treasure,
Full of riches and gold.

Friendship is a memory,
That can never grow old.

Friendship is a charm,
That you hold near and dear in your heart.

Friendship is a bond,
That keeps us from growing apart.

Sarah Stopka


Have a wonderful weekend my cyber friend.

A Friend is a Treasure

by Jean Kyler McManus



A friend is someone we turn to,
When our spirits need a lift,
A friend is someone we treasure,
For true friendship is a gift.

A friend is someone we laugh with,
Over little personal things,
A friend is someone we're serious with,
In facing whatever life brings.

A friend is someone who fills our lives,
With beauty and joy and grace.
And makes the world that we live in
A better and happier place!

Thank you for the gift of your friendship.
Pat
