"We SPARK to know we're not Alone."


....::::so glad to walk with such supportive friends here at Spark People. My journey to living/maintaining a healthy lifestyle just wouldn't shine as bright without the motivating people I have come to know & love surrounding me! ...:::to journey in the company of other like minded Sparkers is enriching.

What a ...:::GIFT:::... it is just to "move"!

After losing 70 # and maintaining my loss for 2 years, I developed PF (plantar fasciitis)...:::which took me down a difficult road of: my podiatrist's order to stop ALL movement for the 1st 6 months, off/on foot pain, NO running, or even walking at first for a good while, and of course regained weight.
The most challenging aspect was when I had to stop running. However, after ordering custom made orthotic inserts, and being 100% faithful to use them 24/7, I am MOBILE! ((Praise God!))

I currently power walk 6 mornings/week covering 20 plus miles/week with my dear friend/walking buddy! Our motto is to "be TRUE to ourselves"...:::and "every step is a step of Progress". We accept our strengths & weaknesses, adapting each day to make it our BEST day!

Here's to ~ ~ ~ whatever ~ ~ ~ PROGRESS I might Live Out.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GOAL: August 22, 2008: begin weight loss journey...lose 60# slowly...take it 1 day at a time.


GOAL MET: November 2009 - lost 60#, and 51 inches down!


GOAL: Maintain 60# loss, and increase strength endurance, lose inches too...(my FAV kind of loss!)


GOAL MET: November 2010 - I have maintained my 60# loss, an additional 12 inches GONE!! & I'm CRAVING Strength training and cardio!!!, ...this healthy lifestyle is MY LIFESTYLE now!! I own it!


GOAL: June 2012 - Due to a motorist accident, I gained 8# and lost time during the recovery period....I need to regain strength, endurance and ideal weight....once again!


GOAL MET: October 2012 Made my goal!! ...and even better than before! ...and now 3# away from my FINAL GOAL!


GOAL MET: November 2012 I reached my Final Goal!! ..::::65# gone Forever! Now to maintain:::...my range weight is 140-145....gives me a 22 BMI.


GOAL MET: June 2013 I reached another goal...::my body fat is now 21%!


SETBACK: February 2014 I developed plantar fasciitis, and had to STOP all fitness for a few months....being sedentary was a sort of prison for me. Then we moved (HUGE life change for my family of 6)...time flew through house remodeling and needing to stay off of my foot - hence 23# gained thru it all.


GOAL: Currently as of June 2015...I'm taking one day at a time and claiming my health...once again. Weight loss through staying on track and implementing those healthy lifestyle habits. One Day At A Time...I Can Do This.

The following are quotes special to me:


"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ''Wow... What a ride!'' ''

And an even BETTER version!

I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.

I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.

I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.

I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.

I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.

I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

― Marjorie Pay Hinckley



Let the words of my mouth & the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength & my Redeemer. ~ Ps 19:14


"Success is not a destination, it's a journey."

"Integrity is never being ashamed of our reflections. "

Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?

"A good laugh is sunshine in a house"

"Character gets you out of bed; commitment moves you to action. Faith, hope & discipline enable you to follow through to completion."

"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it."
