The best day of my life ... and my motivation to continue my new lifestyle.

Squeaks is my inspiration - I've had her on Rx diet food, so I guess I should follow suit as well!

This is my goal, my inspiration, the inner me- I will have this shape, this is my promise to myself

I have 5 pics in my gallery

Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
It is a forum that my wife (Tickle*Me*Pink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability. Carol says "it's like a bunch of angels carrying all of us to our goals"

The link is located on my sparkpage, and the main discussion room is still named "disabiltiies group".
People post their successes in life,their obstacles, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, different health obstacles, parents' topics, different age rooms, losing baby fat, books insight, crafts, literary, recipes, motivation..etc.etc..and there's even a thread for jokes(to name only a few).. There are many little challenges posted , to give us a little added "spark", too.. (maybe you can come up with a challenge too--all you need to do is to contact Tickle*Me*Pink through sparkmail or check out her sparkpage..)..if you don't feel up to a challenge for now, you will definately find comfort and encouragement in any of the rooms you browse in...

I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room,("disabilities group forum") & maybe share some of your own successes,obstacles, goals, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

We hope to welcome you! (my wish is that everyone here on sparkpeople has a place to meet..wether they attend to other groups, I feel it is important that there is a place like that..PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people congregate"!! )
I hope you will click on my sparkpage, and add a comment if you need any questions answerred. (or you can sparkmail Carol or myself..we are more then willing to help)

p.s..I admit.. this invite is a bit'll be surprised though..when you read my posts in the forum..they are short LOL well.. except for some of the jokes..which I am trying to shorten LOL (I just wanted to tell you as much as I could here, to make you comfortable and familiar and to feel welcomed)
