Welcome!

I am on the road to health - with fits and starts along the way. My highest weight was 288 and I started Sparkpeople seriously at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30, gained some back, but I'm on the road.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable ...
Welcome!

I am on the road to health - with fits and starts along the way. My highest weight was 288 and I started Sparkpeople seriously at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30, gained some back, but I'm on the road.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable weight loss.

I've been though major life changes here, and I keep learning to love myself, treat myself well, and thus eat better and move my body.

My nutrition is mostly whole foods, plant based. Some fish when dining out.

There's so much happiness ahead! We think we have to work for it, wish for it and wait for it, but joy can and does appear anytime, and our greatest blessings often unfold in ways we never would have imagined. Life has wonderful surprises in store for you! Have a great week!

It's easy to dwell on what we're not enough of, or too much of, and to focus on what we haven't got or what we're just plain not. But so what if you're not perfect? No one is. Really!! And you are something that is so much better: YOU! There is no one more special. Hope you are having a wonderful week?!!!

Glad to be back on line, FINALLY!!

I was going to just post the picture on my blog but then the words apparently needed to be said. It's strange what the brain knows but until you see the words, you don't really 'get it'
Thank you for your beautiful comment and of course your friendship
