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.

Happy Valentine's Day!

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!

In the middle of our busy lives
it can be easy to forget to say
two little words

Thank you for all the ways you
make Spark Life better
the ones that seem small and make you wonder
if anyone notices (I do).
And the big ones that show the world
what a truly amazing heart you have (you do!)

"Your thoughtfulness has given me great joy and encouragement"
