Ok, My story = Well, some of you have been with me for a long time but some of you are new friends. Many of you may not realize my past "glories" (lol) a couple of years ago I lost 98 pounds in one year by exercising and low carb. I was so happy and boy my doctor was happy with me too! Then my Daddy died and my world fell apart. I regained all I had lost and then some. I have restarted my journey as of February 2016. At this point...well I am nearly bed bound, I can barely walk and I must lose weight. my weight at restart is 435 pounds give or take a pound. I really want to do this so that my hubby does not have to be my caretaker anymore.

    Hi my Beautiful Spark Friends, here is our new mantra:

    Today I am shedding pounds as I shred my self-doubt,
    Day in and day out, I develop the habits of healthy eating,
    Today I am transforming my body into calorie-burning machine,
    The more I exercise, the better I feel and the better I feel the more I exercise!

    Thanks for the blog comment. I am trying hard, I want my shoulder to be as good as it can be when this is all over with. I am actually surprised that I am so close to my last weigh in given the fact that I haven't been all that careful about my diet recently.

    But more importantly, look at you!! You are doing fantastically and I am so very happy for your success!! Whatever it is that you are doing, keep doing it!! The sky is the limit once you have a plan that works and momentum is on your side!
