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.

We had the same - too much winter, not enough spring, and right into summer. I hate the gnats too. Very irritating!!

Sometimes I forget to thank
the people who make my life
So happy in so many ways.

Sometimes I forget to tell
them how much I really do
appreciate them for being an
important part of my life.

Today is just another day
Nothing special is going on

So thank you, my friend
just for being here for ME!!
