Saw this on another sparker's page and it really struck a chord with me. Love this!





I still struggle with my old self image, but pictures don't lie. Still in disbelief!

Keep Moving Forward!

This was getting too long with all the updates...so time to update the updates and shorten it up!

I've struggled with my weight my entire life. I've lost and gained 50 lbs several times in my life. I joined SP about 5 years ago and lost about 30lbs. Since then I fell off the SP wagon, got a job teaching first grade, earned my master's degree and gained it all back, and then some...and some more...and some more.

I've struggled with my weight my entire life. I've lost and gained 50 lbs several times in my life. I joined SP about 5 years ago and lost about 30lbs. Since then I fell off the SP wagon, got a job teaching first grade, earned my master's degree and gained it all back, and then some...and some more...and some more.

I scared myself at my all time heaviest weight in July 2011 and started on the get-healthy journey once again. In June 2012 I came back to SP and am so grateful for all of the FREE tools, education, and support that I find here! I'm happier and healthier than I've been in years and am coming to understand and accept that it really IS about the journey, not the destination. I can't fail on this journey if I don't quit. And believe me, I'll never quit!

I look forward to both giving and receiving the 'spark'! It's so much easier when you're traveling this road with folks who 'get it'!

Stopping by to say hi. When is your last day of school?
News for me, I handed in my resignation! Very hard decision but necessary for my health and well being! I turn 66 in Sept. And need to lose weight and significantly reduce my stress! My last day is 7/2! Yikes, lots to do before then but know this is what I need to do!
I am sure you are looking forward to your summer vacation!
