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!

Love never fails; Character never quits;
and with patience and persistence;
Dreams do come true.
~~Pete Maravich~~


Time to see that your dreams come true.
Have an awesome weekend.

True friendship isn't seen with the eyes, it is felt with the heart.
When there is trust, understanding, loyalty, and sharing.
True friendship is a rare feeling, but when it is found
It has profound impact on our well-being, strength, and character.
True friendship does not need elaborate gifts
Or spectacular events in order to be valuable or valued.
To ensure long-lasting quality and satisfaction,
True friendship only needs a few key ingredients:
Undying loyalty, unmatched understanding, unsurpassed trust,
Deep and soulful secrets, and endless sharing.
These ingredients, mixed with personality and a sense of humor,
Can make a friendship last a lifetime!
This is just a thank you, my friend, for all the wonderful and colorful
Special ingredients You've brought to my life!

A friend shared this with me-she lives in Canada and has been helping care for her 93 year old neighbor who is moving into an assisted living facility next week. I hope you enjoy this poem as much as I did and wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday.
Pat


[ found this in one of Josie's old purses.

Age is a quality of mind,

If you have left your dreams behind,

If hope is lost;

If you no longer look ahead,

If your ambitions' fires are dead -

Then you are old,

But if to life you give the best,

And if in life you keep the jest,

If love you hold,

No matter how the birthdays fly,

You are not old

Sorry I haven't been sending words of encouragement for a bit but hopefully you are still inspired and on track to meet your goals, with or without me!!


Because you are my friend,
my life is enriched in a myriad of ways.
Like a cool breeze on a sweltering day,
like a ray of sunshine parting glowering clouds,
you lift me up.
In good times, we soar,
like weightless balloons
over neon rainbows.
In bad times, you are soothing balm
for my pummeled soul.
I learn so much from you;
you help me see old things in new ways.
I wonder if you are aware
of the bright seeds you are sowing in me.
I'm a better person for knowing you,
so that everyone I interact with
is touched by your good effect on me.
You relax me, refresh me, renew me.
Your bounteous heart envelops me
in joy and love and peace.
May your life be filled
with dazzling blessings,
just as I am blessed
by being your friend.
~Joanna Fuchs~

Have a Sparktacular week.
Hugs
Pat
