I have multiple sclerosis, which makes it hard for me to get much exercise and harder for me to lose weight than it would otherwise be.

My first husband died in 2000 and I was unable to eat much for a couple of months. I lost 50 pounds (the wrong way) but then when I was able to eat again I gained 75!

I remarried in 2003 and recently divorced, which is why I switched from the photo of me with ex hubby on our wedding day to the pic of the kitten in the little box of sadness. I'm not really that sad anymore, just thought that pic was cute and appropriate.

I quit smoking in December of 2006 and immediately gained 30 more pounds. I would still encourage anyone with MS to quit smoking because smoking has been found to be strongly linked to MS progression. I would encourage anyone to quit smoking just because it's really bad for you, but especially MS patients who want to keep from needing to be in a wheelchair.

My Goals:
I want to lose 70 or 80 pounds. I think that this will help me in a lot of health related areas, including helping me to sleep better and taking some pressure off of my messed up knees. I'm also hoping that it will help improve my MS situation.

Life
is a coin,
you can spend it anyway
you wish,
but you can only spend it
once.

Make sure you spend it wisely!
Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday my friend.

“Do not sit still; start moving now. In the beginning, you may not go in the direction you want, but as long as you are moving, you are creating alternatives and possibilities.”
― Rodolfo Costa,

Have an awesome week.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving
safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
Champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!
~Unknown Author~

Enjoy the ride!!! Happy Saturday.

God doesn't require us to succeed, he only requires that you try.

Every day we need to do the best we can to meet our goals. No matter what you are trying to achieve, always give it your best shot.

A SPARK Garden For Spring

In my garden, I would first plant five rows of peas:
Planning, perseverance, politeness, participation and prayer.

Next to them I would plant three rows of squash:
Squash junk food, squash negativity, squash high calorie foods.

Then, I would put in five rows of lettuce:
Let us be supportive, let us be encouraging,
let us be motivating, let us be inspiring, and
let us share the Spark love.

No garden in complete without turnips and mine would have:
Turn up with positivity, turn up with a good attitude,
turn up with strong participation, turn up the effort,
turn up the intensity, turn up the fitness time. and
turn up SPREADING THE SPARK!

I got this from another Spark friend and just had to share it because it struck a chord with me and hope it does for you too.
