I'm so grateful for SparkPeople! I started (again) at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30+ so far, from my highest weight in January, 2013, of 288. Now I am headed to losing 100 more.

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.

If I can you ...

If I can you do it -- so can you. 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.

Treating "any old job" as if it were your dream job is the fastest way to spark the kind of life changes that will yield your dream job.

Same for any old house, friend, day, life, or pair of shoes. emoticon

FOCUS on what's important, CAPTURE the good times, emoticon DEVELOP from the negatives, and if things don't work out, TAKE ANOTHER SHOT."

On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.

I am fortunate to know you,
That's why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine's Day!
